Health Note

by Sally Coffin, R.N.

Isn’t this weather wonderful?  The sun is shining, the temperature is rising and the days are getting longer.  It’s our payoff for those long winters with short daylight hours!  So our summer activities draw us outdoors; gardening, cycling, boating, swimming, etc.  But before you soak up the rays, I just want to remind you that too much sun is not a good thing.  Skin cancer is on the rise, and sunburns are the # 1 preventable risk factor.  Taking some precautions to protect your skin doesn’t have to get in the way of a great time. Get into the habit of protecting your skin before you go outside. These simple precautions are all that is required:


  1. Avoid the peak ultraviolet radiation period   If you avoid the sun during the 2 hours either side of solar noon, you could avoid up to 60% of the day’s ultraviolet radiation.
  2. Wear a Hat   A hat with a wide brim offers good sun protection for your eyes, ears, face, and the back of your neck .
  3. Wear protective clothing.  Many our doors and sports related clothing stores offer clothing with an SPF number.
  4. Use Sunscreen.  Apply at least a SPF 15+ broad spectrum sunscreen to all exposed areas of the skin as the last line of defense against the sun. Sunscreen should  not be relied upon as the only form of sun protection and should be reapplied liberally  every two hours – even if is considered water resistant.
  5. Wear Sunglasses that Block 99-100% of UV Radiation   Sunglasses can help protect your eyes from sun damage. The ideal sunglasses don't have to be expensive, but they should block 99-100% of UVA, and UVB radiation. Check the label to see if they do. Wraparound sunglasses are best because they can protect your eyes from all angles.


Now it’s time to go have some fun in the sun!  Enjoy your summer!
