Be Sun Smart – It’s your skin. Wear it well

Protect your family from the sun. Each year, more than 3 million people develop skin cancer, the most common of all cancers. The sun can damage your skin year-round, so it’s important to protect yourself and your loved ones from its harmful effects. Avoid the sun when ultra-violet (UV) rays are strong, generally between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and remember to Slip, Slop, Slap & Wrap!
