Summer days my lure you outdoors, but remember to guard against too much sun. Use sunscreens and lip balms with an SPF of at least 15-even on cloudy days. Also wear sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves and long pants. When possible, avoid direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest.
