SUNBURNS DON'T MIX WITH FUN!
During the summer months, the days are longer and everyone spends more time outdoors. Besides making the plants grow, the sun gives us Vitamin D for stronger bones by sending down light, which includes ultraviolet rays. You can’t see ultraviolet rays! But, these are also the rays that can cause sunburn when you are exposed to too much sun! The ultraviolet rays pass through the air and clouds and penetrate your skin.
Sunburn can cause blisters on your skin as well as turning your skin very red. It also makes you feel sore and you have to get out of the sun and stay inside. No fun when everyone else is outside having fun!
In today's Spotlight On Health, read more about the importance of wearing sunblock and avoiding sunburns!
