Ways to protect yourself from the sun

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

-- Seek out shade whenever possible.

-- Use an umbrella if you'll be in the sun for long periods.

-- Limit outdoor activities when the sun is strongest. Go out before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m.

-- Use sunscreen even on cloudy or hazy days. You can still get burned.
