Sunscreen Protection Day
Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always held on May 27
Sun Screen Day educates and brings awareness to the importance of using sunscreen to protect yourself and your children from harmful UV rays from the sun. This day is held on May 27th, just in advance of the summer and vacation season.
Ultraviolet rays from the sun is a serious risk to your health. With the steady depletion of the ozone layer above the earth, more and stronger UV rays get through.
Overexposure to the sun can cause a number of health problems. It can cause skin cancer, and sunspots. It can also result in premature aging of your skin.
Doctors and medical professionals advocate the use of sunscreen, to guard against health problems. They recommend an Skin Protection factor (SPF) of 15 or more. The higher the SPF value, the better the lotion is at protecting you against harmful UV rays. Sunscreens should be used for all outdoor activities, including swimming.
And yes, sun screens should be used on cloudy days. UV rays can penetrate through the clouds.
Now get out and celebrate Sun Screen Day in the sun...with your sun screen protection!
