WHO IS AT RISK?

SUN AND YOUR SKIN
SUN AND SEASONS
EFFECTS FROM THE SUN
CLOTHING & UPF
SUNSCREEN & S.P.F.
SPF: Sun Protection Factor
•People with freckles
•Those with fair skin tones
•Those who burn easily
•People with light colored eyes (green and blue eyes)
•People with naturally red or blonde hair
•People who spend a lot of time outdoors (Gardner's, Athletes)
•People who have a family history of skin cancer or melanoma
Clothing is the first line of defense against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays
The more skin you cover= more protection.
UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor
Sun protective clothing is specifically designed for sun protection and is produced from a fabric rated for its level of UV protection.
Sun protective clothing incorporates specific designs including full coverage clothing to prevent UV damage.
Remember that dark colors attract greater sunlight!
The amount of UPF in clothing starts from 5 UPF up to 50 UPF.
SPF relates to the ability of a sunscreen to block UV rays, which cause sunburns
The SPF rating is a measure of the time it would take you to sunburn if you were not wearing sunscreen as opposed to the time it would take with sunscreen on
Is a 90+ sunscreen really that much better than one with an SPF of 30?
It is logical for someone to think that an SPF of 30 is TWICE as good as an SPF of 15 and so on, but that's not how it works
SPF 15 product blocks about 94% of UV rays... an SPF 30 product blocks 97% of UV rays... and an SPF 45 blocks about 98% of rays
After that its just irrelevant... NO SPF can block 100% of UV rays!
Sun protection is just as important during the winter as it is during the warmer months. It might feel cold outside, but it doesn't have anything to do with the strength of the sun's UV rays. Although people tend to associate heat with sunburn, that's a myth. No matter what the temperature is outside, you can get sunburn.
Time of Day: —UV is greatest when the sun is at its highest in the sky (between 10 am and 4 pm)
Season:—While UV exposure is the greatest during the summer in the United States, it is important to remember that UV rays reach Earth every day and you should be sun safe all year round—including winter! Snow can reflect 85% to 90% of the sun's UV rays!
Altitude:—The air is cleaner and thinner at higher altitudes, so UV exposure is greater in the mountains than in the valleys. (For example, you can still get sunburned while skiing in the winter!)
Location:—UV is strongest at the equator and gets weaker as you move towards the poles.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 90 percent of skin cancers are caused by sun exposure.
In some parts of the world, melanoma is increasing at rates faster than any other cancer.
More than 1.2 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year in the US.
Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, kills one person every hour.
One blistering sunburn can double a child's lifetime risk of developing skin cancer.
