July is UV Safety Month!

July is UV Safety Month!
It seems there is a month for everything, but this one comes directly from the US Department of Health and Human Services: it’s UV Safety Month! This makes sense. July is one of the hottest months in the US, and it’s also right in the middle of prime vacation time. As we know, UV rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer, which is the nation’s most common type of cancer. And that’s not to mention the painful sunburns, dry skin and wrinkles that UV rays can cause. Coolibar supports the efforts of the United States HHS department and the Federal Occupational Health agency to raise awareness about skin cancer and the dangers of UV rays. They include encouraging families to adopt good sun safety habits together, to include wearing sunscreen; we would add don’t forget your UPF 50+ sun protective clothing! Watch for posts throughout July about UV safety for your skin and even for your eyes! Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month
