  1. Wear protective clothing: Cover your skin with lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that is designed to block UV rays. This includes long-sleeved shirts, pants, and wide-brimmed hats.
  2. Apply sunscreen: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and reapply every two hours or more often if you are sweating or swimming.
  3. Seek shade: Limit your time in direct sunlight, especially during peak hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Look for shade under trees, umbrellas, or canopies.
  4. Wear sunglasses: Protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays with sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection.
  5. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially if you are spending time outside in the sun.
  6. Be mindful of medication: Some medications can make you more sensitive to the sun, so be sure to read the label and ask your doctor if you are unsure.
  7. Check the UV index: Before heading outside, check the UV index in your area. If it is high, take extra precautions to protect your skin and avoid sunburns.
