Sun Safety Facts
- Sun safety is a combination of practices: Sunscreen only lets you burn, practice the 5 SunSmart America™ Rules
- There is no such thing as a safe tan. A base suntan does not prevent burning. It is a degree of sunburn that results in DNA damage.
- The sun is most harmful between 10 am. and 4 pm.
- The sun is responsible for many signs of premature aging (wrinkles, freckles, leathery skin, sun spots, etc.)
- 15-20 minutes in a tanning bed equals 3—4 hours outside in the sun.
- Tanning beds increase the risk of melanoma and non melanoma skin cancers.
- The younger you are when you start using tanning beds the more likely you are to get skin cancer.
- You can get skin cancer ANYWHERE on your body (palms, soles, eyes, under your finger and toe nails, mucous membranes, etc.)
- ANYONE can get skin cancer. Dark skinned people are NOT immune to melanoma.
