Do not expose children under 6 months old to the sun or spread sun screen on their skin.


Avoid being in the sun between 10 am and 3 pm, or being on surfaces that reflect the light.  Do not forget that water, sand and snow reflect more than 80% of ultraviolet rays.


It is also necessary to be protected on cloudy days because the rays go through the clouds.  Wear a hat and cotton made clothes.


Spread sun protection with SPF (sun protection factor) 15 or more on uncovered skin, 30 minutes before exposure and repeat every 2 hours or after being in the water.


Avoid exposure to the sun if under medication with drugs that can cause photosensitivity.


 Do not use devices for an artificial tan;  solar lamps and beds for cosmetic purposes nay cause irreversible effects to the skin.


 We have to educate children and adults to have a preventive attitude regarding outdoor activities.
