DR. JAMÉ HESKETT’S SUN PROTECTION CHECKLIST
1. Apply sunscreen at home, before you put your bathing suit on, to ensure even coverage and no missed spots. 2. Remember the two most often forgotten areas: your feet and scalp (a good excuse to buy a great hat). 3. Enjoy the beach from under an umbrella— you’re exposed to radiation even when wearing sunscreen. 4. Wear a shirt with
SPF for extra protection on the water, because the ocean reflects the sun’s rays. 5. Pop an ibuprofen as soon as you realize you have a sunburn; it will stop the burn from progressing.
