Today is the start of National Sun Safety Awareness Week, and Skin Cancer Awareness Month continues throughout the month of May!
It's important to make sure you're protected when spending time in the sun this Memorial Day weekend, and even into the summer.
Over-exposure to the sun is the leading cause of skin cancer, the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer in the U.S.
You can take preventative steps by applying sunscreen before and during your time outside, wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV rays, and wearing a hat to protect your face and ears, just to name a few.
Of course, we all need our vitamin D, but you only need to be in the sun for about 10-30 minutes to get those health benefits.
