Don’t Get Caught Unaware!
With Labor Day right around the corner, we thought we’d spend some time talking about fun in the sun. The time we spend outdoors has great health benefits. But outdoor activity also exposes our skin and eyes to harmful ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun and without proper protection, we risk skin damage, cataracts, and even cancer. Stop by inChemistry Magazine and read more about the sun and how to protect your skin from its warm, powerful rays.
