Now that spring is here and the weather is getting warmer and sunnier here are a few myths to consider before spending time outdoors:
"You don't have to worry about a sunburn on a cloudy/overcast day."
MYTH: Clouds don't affect how much harmful UV exposure someone receives.
"Heat isn't a problem until July or August when temperatures peak."
MYTH: Heat exhaustion or heat stroke are more prevalent early in the season, because our bodies haven't had a chance to acclimate to the temperature changes.
"After a thunderstorm passes, if the rain stops and you have blue sky above, the threat of lightning is over."
MYTH: Not necessarily. If you can still hear thunder, you can still be hit. Lightning can strike up to 10 miles away from a storm.
"The more expensive sunscreens work better."
MYTH: With any SPF 30 or greater you're blocking 95% of the suns harmful rays.
"Apply your sunscreen and you're good for the entire day."
MYTH: Many sunscreens will take 15 minutes before they are effective and may need to be reapplied several times a day. It is recommended with most to use 1 ounce of product when applying to the body.
When applying sunscreen the most commonly forgotten places on the body are:
Top of head/hairline part
Top and back of ears
Top of feet
