Health Tip: Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage

(HealthDay News) -- Too much sun can permanently damage your skin and increases your risk of developing skin cancer.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions to help protect you from the sun's harmful effects:

  • Apply sunscreen every day, even if it's cloudy outside.
  • Stay out of the sun while it's strongest, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants and a hat with a wide brim when you'll be outside for long periods.
  • Protect your eyes with UV light-filtering sunglasses.
