To limit exposure to harmful UV rays, experts suggest you and your clients:
- Cover up. One of the most effective ways to reduce exposure to the sun's harmful rays is to wear a shirt, hat, sunglasses and SPF 15+ sunscreen.
- Find a shady spot. It's best to stay out of direct sunlight during the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Be aware of the UV index. Before engaging in outdoor activities, check the UV index to identify the most risky times for overexposure to the sun. By Mary Elizabeth Dallas of Yahoo! HealthDay News.
