(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Summer's here, bringing warmth and relaxation; however, long, light-filled days at the beach often also mean overexposure to the sun's dangerous ultraviolet (UV) radiation. "Skin cancer affects more than two million Americans each year," says Dr. Susan Stuart, a board certified La Jolla, California dermatologist www.lajollaskin.com.

According to Dr. Stuart, to protect yourself from harmful UV rays, you should try to stay out of direct sunlight during the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cover up by wearing hats, sunglasses, and long-sleeved-shirts, or hanging out under shade - and of course applying sunscreen.  Dr. Stuart recommends sunscreen with broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection and sun protective factor (SPF) 45. "Remember to reapply sunscreen at least every 1 to 1/5 hours and after swimming, sweating, or toweling off," advises Dr. Stuart.
