July 17, 2023
Welcome to UV Safety Month! As the summer sun shines down upon us, it's crucial to prioritize the health and safety of your skin. At SageWest Health Care, we are dedicated to promoting skin health and raising awareness about the importance of UV safety. In this article, we will delve into the risks of harmful UV rays and encourage you to schedule an appointment with our team if you have any concerns about your skin.
Understanding the Impact of UV Radiation:
UV radiation from the sun can have detrimental effects on your skin. Prolonged and unprotected exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburns, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer. It's important to understand the potential risks associated with UV radiation and take proactive measures to protect your skin.
Embrace Sun-Safe Practices:
UV Safety Month is an opportune time to adopt sun-safe practices into your daily routine. Seek shade during the peak sun hours, typically between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are the strongest. Wear protective clothing that covers your skin, such as wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and long-sleeved shirts. Apply sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher to all exposed areas of your body and remember to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. By embracing these sun-safe practices, you can significantly reduce your risk of skin damage and potential skin conditions.
Listen to Your Skin:
Your skin reflects your overall health, and it's essential to pay attention to any changes or abnormalities. If you notice any new moles, unusual growths, persistent rashes, or any other skin concerns, it's crucial to take them seriously and seek medical attention. Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider at SageWest Health Care to have your skin evaluated by experts who can provide you with a thorough examination and offer appropriate guidance and treatment.
