HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF ? Limit your exposure during the midday hours between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., when UV radiation is particularly intense. ? Try to stay in the shade. ? Cover your arms and legs with tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes. ? Wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your eyes, ears, face, and the back of your neck. ? Good-quality wraparound sunglasses, or sunglasses with side panels, that provide 99 to 100 percent UVA and UVB (categories of ultraviolet light) protection will greatly reduce the risk of eye damage. ? Use—and liberally reapply every two hours—a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. ? Since sunlamps, sun beds, and tanning parlors use UV radiation, which may damage the skin, WHO recommends avoiding them. ? Be careful to protect babies and young children, whose skin is particularly delicate. ? Never fall asleep in the sun. ? If you develop a mole, a freckle, or a spot that you are concerned about, see your doctor.
