When Back-to-School Shopping, Remember the Sunscreen
Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean you’re free to forget about sun protection. When shopping for back-to-school supplies, make sure to stop by the sunscreen aisle.
Children in elementary school usually have outdoor recess between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun is especially intense. Just one severe sunburn in childhood doubles the chances of developing melanoma later in life.
So while preparing for school, make sure to remind your children about the importance of applying sunscreen and seeking the shade when outdoors.
“The sun’s ultraviolet rays don’t go away when the summer is over.
“Children spend a great deal of time outdoors throughout the school years and on field trips,” said Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation.
