3 tips to stay protected from harmful UV rays

We are in the dog days of summer, which means there is another few weeks of hot temperatures before the weather finally starts to cool off around the country. So even though your children are heading off to school soon and trips to the beach are becoming less frequent, that doesn't mean you should stop being diligent about sun protection. The intense UV rays from the sun can still cause harm to you physically, even if the temperatures outside seem to be cooling down.

Here are a few tips to keep you protected from any health hazards those rays can cause:

  • Stay in the shade: If you find yourself spending a significant amount of time outdoors, try and spend as much time in the shade as possible. While you will still feel the effects of the sun's temperature, you will be much safer from being burned or harmed in other ways.
  • Tint your windows: Even if you think you are safe from the sun inside of your house, the truth is that is not always the case. Throughout the day the sun will be flooding into your home, heating up the interior and your body in the process. To stop this from happening, ceramic window tint is highly recommended.
  • Wear a hat: The simplest solutions are often the best ones. When you walk out of the house, be sure to grab a hat and keep it with you. Not only will it block out some of the sun's rays from your face, but it will also make it easier for you to see on particularly bright days.
