Action Cards: Sun Safety
Use these card decks to help manage your symptoms from cancer treatment.
When skin is exposed to too much sunlight, it becomes susceptible to skin cancer, but there are many things you can do to protect your skin and help prevent skin cancer.
Use sunscreen correctly. Choose sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and put it on 30 minutes before going in the sun. Put on more sunscreen every 2 hours, especially after swimming or exercise.
Keep your skin covered. Wear a hat with a brim and clothing that keeps your skin from being overexposed to sun.
Examine your skin. Check your own skin once a month. Contact your doctor if you notice any changes.
