July is UV Safety Month
In northeast Ohio, summer weather is finally here and we’re all enjoying the outdoors – During the month of July, one of the hottest and sunniest months, the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology work together to promote UV Safety Month.
This July, and throughout the year, it’s important to know about UV safety. Sunburns increase one’s lifetime risk of developing skin cancer. Extra exposure to UV rays can damage unprotected skin, increasing the risk of developing melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
In addition to cancer, UV exposure can cause age spots, eye problems like macular degeneration, wrinkles, and more damage. Adults and children should be taking the time to protect skin and eyes before spending time in the sun.
In the continental United States during daylight hours, from 10 am to 4 pm, UV rays are the most hazardous. People with fair skin are most at risk, but anyone can experience UV sun damage. You can also experience more UV exposure at higher altitudes. Apply sunscreen to all exposed skin at least 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours and after swimming or sweating.
