July Is UV Safety Month

Protecting your skin from weather elements such as heat, cold and sunlight is something you probably do instinctively. However, many people don’t think about protecting their skin from harmful ultraviolet rays that come from the sun and from indoor tanning bed lamps.

More than 1.2 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States due to overexposure to powerful UV rays. But, did you know when your skin is frequently exposed to ultraviolet rays, it can cause many complications other than just skin cancer? Age spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and leathery skin are just some of the problems repeated UV exposure can cause.



There are simple steps you can take every day to protect your skin:

Seek Shady Areas: Stay out of the sun during peak sunlight hours, which are from 10am to 4pm as noted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If you’re unable to find a shady area, try to limit your sun exposure as much as possible or stay indoors.

Wear Protective Clothing: Long sleeved shirts and pants are good ways to cover your skin. It’s very important to protect your head and eyes by wearing wide brimmed hats and sunglasses that are UV-resistant. Remember to protect your skin even on overcast days.

Avoid The Burn: Believe it or not, approximately 2.1 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma of the skin at some point during their lifetime. This risk increases with each sunburn. By using a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher every time you’re outdoors, you can avoid sunburns and prevent irreversible damage to your skin.

Use Caution Near Reflective Surfaces: Water, sand and large windows can reflect and amplify the sun’s harmful rays which can increase your risk of sunburn, even when you’re in the shade.



Although summertime is when most people become aware of protecting their skin from harmful UV rays, it’s smart and healthy to practice preventative outdoor skin care year-round. Need more information? Consult with Aneley Cosmetics to find out more about UV skin protection.
