Empower Your Sun Protection Strategy this Summer During UV Safety Month with these Six Effective Tips to Protect You and Your Family.
The sun is shining, the BBQs are grilling, and the summer spirit is in full swing. July not only marks the heart of summer but also UV Safety Month, an initiative by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure our sun-filled activities don’t take a toll on our health.
Here at the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA), we want to keep our federal family safe and radiant. Therefore, we’ve crafted these essential sun safety tips as part of our #FedLifeHacks series.
This summer, as we enjoy the golden sun, the cooling water, and the spirit of fun and relaxation, let’s make a conscious effort to protect our skin and overall health. It begins with applying sunscreen, wearing the right clothes, and being mindful of the UV Index. It continues with prioritizing our eye health, seeking shade and hydration, and regularly checking our skin. But it certainly doesn’t end there.
Embracing sun savvy practices isn’t a task designated only for the hot summer months—it’s a vital commitment all year long. As the seasons change, we must remember to continue these practices. The sun may seem less harsh in the cooler months, but UV rays don’t go on vacation. Consistency is key in protection, and it’s our best defense against the long-term effects of sun damage.
Stay tuned for more #FedLifeHacks. Together, we’ll continue to explore effective ways to make the most of our federal benefits, nurture our health, and enhance our lifestyle, not just for the summer, but for all the days to come!
