The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention Encourages Everyone to Protect Your Skin Today and Every Day
The National Council Declares the Friday before Memorial Day, May 22, 2015 is “Don’t Fry Day” To Encourage Sun Safety Awareness
“To help reduce rising rates of skin cancer from overexposure to the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention has designated the Friday before Memorial Day as “Don’t Fry Day” to encourage sun safety awareness and to remind everyone to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors.”
Because no single step can fully protect you and your family from overexposure to UV radiation, follow as many of the following tips as possible:
- Do Not Burn or Tan
- Seek Shade
- Wear Sun-Protective Clothing
- Generously Apply Sunscreen
- Use Extra Caution Near Water, Snow, and Sand
- Get Vitamin D Safely
Instead of frying your skin in the sun today, enjoy a delicious dish of vanilla pudding instead. Coincidentally today is also National Vanilla Pudding Day!
Here are some recipes, all containing vanilla pudding, for you to use and share with your family and friends:
