Today was my first day of work for the summer. Unfortunately it was cloudy and cold so only 2 of my 20 something coworkers applied any form of sun protection. Apparently they did not know that UVA and UVB pass through the clouds. I guess they will figure it tomorrow when they have a painful sunburn.
Another reason many people forget to put on sunscreen is because their skin is cool. Beware that just because there is a breeze or you are in cool water does not mean that you are not getting burned. Don't forget to grab your shirt and hat before hitting the beach or the pool this summer!
Although many of the lifeguards failed their sun safety today, a bunch of little kids came fully prepared.

I wish I could pull off a hat and shorts like that...
