Sun Screen

Say Hello to Sunshine

The need for sun safety has become clear over the past 30 years; with studies showing that exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer. Harmful rays from the sun, sunlamps and tanning beds may also cause eye problems, weaken your immunity system, and give you unsightly skin spots, wrinkles, or "leathery" skin.
Sun damage to the body is caused by invisible ultraviolet (UV) radiation. People recognize sunburn as a type of skin damage caused by the sun. Tanning is also a sign of the skin reacting to potentially damaging UV radiation by producing additional pigmentation that provides it with some but often not enough protection against sunburn.
No matter what our skin color is, we're all potentially susceptible to sunburn and the other detrimental effects of exposure to UV radiation. Although we all need to take precautions to protect our skin, people who need to be especially careful in the sun are those who have:

  • Pale skin,
  • Blond, red, or light brown hair,
  • Been treated for skin cancer,
  • A family member who's had skin cancer.
