We are gearing up for another hot day and you have to be out and about….appointments, appointments!!

 

Chemotherapy can make patients more sensitive to the sun and more vulnerable to heat-related problems.
  • Protect your head. Don’t forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat, especially with hair loss, and apply sunscreen to your face, the most exposed to the sun and more susceptible to damage.
  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and check on a recommendation for sensitive skin with your medical team especially if your skin is irritated anywhere from radiation therapy.
  • Wear sunglasses with UV protection to protect your eyes any time the sun is out to offset risks of cataracts and inflammation.
  • Dress for sun protection and cover your exposed skin with light and breathable long-sleeve shirts and pants as much as possible. Remember apply sunscreen because some light clothing does not offer complete protection.

Why not make a statement with  a trendy umbrella on this hot Summer’s day and REMEMBER to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate…..
