Slip, Slap, Slop - Sun Safety Tips 

Dr. Albers recommends using the slip, slap, slop method to maximize sun protection in the summer and all year long.

Slip on sun protective clothing and sunglasses. Tightly woven clothing blocks the sun’s rays and reflects heat helping you feel cool. Wear sunglasses with UV protection to protect both eyes and eyelids from damaging ultraviolet rays.

Slap on a wide brim hat to protect face, scalp, ears and neck.

Slop on sunscreen/block. Apply a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher, 20-30 minutes before going outside. Reapply at least every 2 hours, even on cloudy days. If swimming or sweating apply it more often. There is no such thing as a “waterproof” sunscreen, look for water resistant.
