Slide 11 - Is it OK to Get a Tan or Sunburn? Everyone, regardless of skin color, can sunburn! A suntan or sunburn are not indicators of good health. Tanning and sunburns are just like smoking cigarettes; just one suntan or sunburn can increase your risk of cancer, regardless of skin color.
Slide 12 - How Do I Protect My Skin? “Slip, Slop, Slap, & Wrap” SLIP on a shirt SLAP on a hat with a 2 to 3-inch brim all around to protect neck, ears, nose and scalp SLOP on sunscreen and lip balm with an SPF of 15 or higher WRAP on sunglasses to protect the eyes and skin around them
Slide 13 - Any Special Info for Children? Infant skin burns more easily than that of older kids. Sunscreen should not be applied to babies under 6 months of age, so just keep them out of the sun whenever possible. If your infant must be in the sun, dress him or her in clothing that covers the body, including hats with wide brims to shadow the face. Use an umbrella to create shade. For kids age 6 months and older, select an SPF of 15 or higher to prevent both sunburn and tanning.
Slide 14 - How Do I Use Sunscreen? Apply sunscreen whenever you will be in the sun. Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before you go outside so that a good layer of protection can form. Don't forget about lips, hands, ears, feet, shoulders, and behind the neck. Don't try to stretch out a bottle of sunscreen; apply it generously. Reapply sunscreen often, approximately every 2 to 3 hours. Reapply after if you’ve been sweating or swimming. Apply a waterproof sunscreen if you will be around water or swimming. And regardless of the waterproof label, be sure to reapply sunscreen when you come out of the water. Throw away any sunscreen products that are past their expiration dates BE SURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES WITH YOUR KIDS AND LOVED ONES!!!
