Each year on the Friday before Memorial Day we recognize Don't Fry Day, a program of the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, as a reminder to protect your skin from overexposure to the sun's damaging UV rays. Practice the 5 S's today and every day:
- Slip on sun protective clothing.
- Slop on broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater.
- Slap on a wide-brimmed hat.
- Seek shade or shelter.
- Slide on UV-protective sunglasses.
One last tip is to avoiding indoor tanning.
