                      Slip

  sunscreen on the exposed skin

                       Slop

    (SPF) of 15 or higher.

    least 30 minutes before sun exposure.

    swimming or sweating

                      Slap
• Slap on a hat
  – The head and neck are common places for
    skin cancer to start
  – For maximum protection, wear a hat with a 3
    -4 inch brim all around.
  – Be sure to sunscreen your ears and neck if
    you wear a smaller hat or baseball cap.

                 Sunglasses

  – Sunglasses protect the eyes and skin around
    the eyes.
  – Choose sunglasses that block 100% of both
    UVA and UVB rays.

                        Seek
• Seek shade.
  – Because the sun’s UV rays are most intense
    between 10 AM and 4 PM, outdoor activities
    should be minimized during this time
  – If you are outside during this time, find some
    shade, and keep cool under a tree, umbrella,
    or structure.

                      Say no
• Say no to artificial rays.
  – Do not use indoor tanning beds, booths, and
    sunlamps.
  – Artificial rays are sources of artificial UV
    radiation.
  – Indoor tanning devices are not safe!
