Some folks took full advantage of the sunny conditions on Sunday, and that means plenty of folks could be nursing a sunburn right now! The UV Index plays a part in that.
Ultra-violet intensity is measured on a scale of one to ten. This weekend, the index measured a seven, which means your winter skin was at a fairly high risk. Here are some guidelines for safer sun exposure:
First, know when the sun is the most dangerous. Experts say the rays are the strongest from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. If the daily UV Index is expected to be 5 or higher, grab the sun block, and cover your skin. Wear SPF sunblock, and UV protection shades. Finally, respect the limits of your skin. In a moderate to high UV Index reading, a fair skinned person can burn after only 15 minutes of being in the sun.
