Tips for sun protection:

  1. Apply a broad-spectrum water-resistant sunscreen of at least SPF 30, and reapply every 2 hours or so or after getting wet or sweating.
  2. Sunscreen should be applied even on cloudy days and in the winter (on the face).
  3. Wear a hat, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing
  4. Seek shade; remember that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Do your outdoor exercise early in the morning or in the evening.
  5. Remember that water, snow and sand and concrete all reflect damaging ultraviolet rays
  6. Avoid tanning beds
  7. Vitamin D is best obtained through vitamin D rich foods and enriched foods (e.g. almonds, broccoli) , or through a vitamin D supplement rather than by increasing sun exposure.
