Once again it is National Don’t Fry Day! The Friday before Memorial Day, when so many are vacationing, heading to the beach, spending time at the pool, has been designated as DON’T FRY DAY.
There is no such thing as a safe tan (unless it’s from a bottle!).
- Seek shade during the sun’s strongest hours (10am – 4pm)
- Apply Sunscreen – and REAPPLY OFTEN! (every 1.5 – 2 hours)
- Wear protective clothing & sunglasses (hats, UV protected clothing, etc.)
- Be extra cautious around water and sand, as they can intensify the sun’s rays
Check your skin. Be aware. When caught early, melanoma is very treatable.
Pale is better than dead.
