If you haven’t noticed I’m bound and determined to spread the word about sun protection, but also that we can be outside and still have fun in the sun while being safe in the sun! Besides, no one wants to be cooped up inside while the temps are soaring and it just feels good to be outside.

So what are the ways in which you can protect yourself from head to toe?

  • Wide brimmed sun hat – to keep the sun’s rays from reaching your face
  • AVEENO® HYDROSPORT™ Sunscreen SPF 30 and AVEENO® Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer SPF 30: Whether you are out on the beach or running errands around town, daily sunscreen is a must
  • Sunglasses with 100% UV Protection:  These stylish “sunnies” make you look like a movie star, while shielding your peepers from ultraviolet light
  • One month of ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses:* Not all contact lenses offer UV protection and in fact, most do not. ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses offer the highest level of UV blocking available, blocking more than 96 percent of UVA rays and 99 percent of UVB rays that reach the lens

Seems to me that you can still look chic and be safe in the sun!

You can enjoy an advanced listen of the UV Protection podcast of Healthy Vision™ with Dr. Val Jones before the official launch on June 12th. The podcast features Dr. Jeanine Downie and Dr. Stephen Cohen who join host Dr. Val to talk about the importance of protecting the entire body from the sun’s damaging rays. The podcast covers:

  • The danger of UV for the skin and eyes
  • The triad of protection
  • Easy steps the whole family can take to protect their eyes and skin 365 days a year
  • How often to see a dermatologist for a total skin check and an eye care professional for an eye exam
