July is UV Safety Month, Protect Your Skin!

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.

During the month of July, join us in taking action to prevent skin cancer and reduce the risk of UV 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 30 or higher.
  • Cover up with long sleeves and a hat.
  • Check your skin once a month for changes.
