Doctor :   Avoiding deliberate tanning, including use of indoor tanning devices.
Doctor :   Staying out of the sun between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., when the sunâ??s rays are the strongest.
Doctor :   Wearing protective clothing, such as a wide-brimmed hat and long sleeves, when outdoors during the day
Doctor :   Applying sunscreen year round. Sunscreen should be broad spectrum (offers UVA and UVB protection) and have a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before going outdoors to all skin that will be exposed. It should be reapplied after sweating or being in water.
