July is UV Safety Month

Pharmacy (health Awareness)

Once again, winter has faded into spring and spring has burst into summer. Along comes the invincible summer sun—your skin’s arch-enemy, particularly if you exercise outdoors. There are precautions that you should take to reduce your amount of exposure to UV.

When planning your outdoor activities, you can decide how much sun protection you need by checking the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) UV index, which measures the daily intensity of UV rays from the sun on a scale of 1 to 11. A low UV index requires minimal protection, whereas a high UV index requires maximum protection.

Keep in mind you can fall victim to sun damage on a cloudy day and in the winter, so dress accordingly all year round.
