May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States? Did you know that window films block 99.9% of UV Rays? Using window film is an effective solution offering lots of protection. 
Since May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we and the Skin Cancer Foundation would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some prevention guidelines. 
  • Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun is strongest.

  • Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths.
  • Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. 
  • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day.
  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. 
  • Apply window film to your home and your car. It blocks 99.9% of UVA/UVB rays. 
  • Keep newborns out of the sun since their skin is extremely vulnerable. 
  • Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.

Hi, I'm Hunter. I'm friendly with dogs, kids and adults, and I'm housebroken and crate trained and doing well on walking on leash. I'm a special pup because I am super sweet and docile, and if you adopt me I will bring so much to your home by cuddling and being a loyal companion. I would love a fur-ever home to call my own. Could it be with you?
