DR. JAMÉ HESKETT’S SUN PRO­TEC­TION CHECK­LIST

Coastal Living - - CURRENTS -

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.
