Editorial: Under-16 tanning ban a good step toward cancer prevention

(Continued)

When you’re outdoors, seek shade between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wear sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher that protects against UVA and UVB rays, even when it’s a bit cloudy, and don’t get burned. And remember to wear a hat to protect your face and sunglasses to prevent damage to your eyes.

Don’t be afraid to enjoy the sunshine spring has to offer. Just be safe when you’re out catching some rays.

In summary Indiana's legislature took an important step in reducing the risk of skin cancer for the youngest of our residents by banning tanning for those under age 16.
