July is UV Safety Month
July is UV Safety Month and even though this month is almost over, summer and the UV rays that go along with it are still in full swing.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles and blotches or spots on your skin. The most common areas of the body affected by skin cancers are the ones most exposed to the sun such as the face, ears, neck, lips and the backs of hands.
These are just some of the reasons why the office of Drs. Eric and Casey Burns wants to help raise awareness of the risks of sun damage.
You can take steps today to protect your skin:
- Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- Use sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.
- Cover up with long sleeves and a hat.
- Check your skin regularly for changes.
