Summer is in full blast, which means you’ll probably be spending lots of time outdoors in the sun. Even though the beach may be calling your name, don’t forget to keep your skin safe while having fun. With just a few precautions, you can lower your chances of skin cancer and also prevent damage from powerful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Here are 5 easy tips to protect your skin:
- Use sunscreen! Look for at least SPF 30 and a “broad-spectrum” label. This will protect your skin against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.
- Reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially after swimming. Even if the sunscreen is water-resistant, it is recommended to apply another layer after any sweat-inducing activities.
- Wear protective clothing, such as a light, long-sleeved shirt (like this one from Cherokee Workwear) or a hat and sunglasses to keep your eyes safe in the sun. Trust Your Journey sells several cute hats and visors that are perfect for outdoor outings.
- Try to avoid the sun between 10am-4am. The sun’s rays are the strongest during these hours, so search for the nearest patch of shade if you can.
- Look out for reflective surfaces. Sand, water, and snow can reflect harmful UV rays onto your skin, giving you a dreaded sunburn. Even if the sun isn’t out, you can still be affected by the UV rays.
Also, July is UV Safety Month, so it’s an opportune time to show some love to your skin. Encourage friends and family to adopt positive habits to prevent skin cancer and UV damage.

With spring underway, March means the arrival of two holidays—St. Patrick’s Day and Easter! Here are a couple of my favorite festive scrubs for this time of year:
White Cross’s Scoop Neck Top
Feel lucky in this clover-themed top from White Cross! It’s absolutely perfect for those St. Patty’s Day shifts, complete with a fitted waist for a flattering look. Match it with our allheart Reversible Pant in Hunter Green, and you’re ready to score the approval of any fashionable leprechaun.
Allheart’s 2-Pocket Scrub Jacket
This soft, cotton jacket is available in many fun designs, but the “Bunny Patch” print is the most notable for the Easter holiday. There are a few other Spring-themed prints, such as “Lamb Blue” and “Lamb Pink”. As you know, “March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb”, so why not your scrubs too?
