☀️ Sun Safety Fact: The sun can do damage to your skin, even if you can’t see it 👀
Sun damage is caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, not temperature ❄️ A cool, overcast day can have similar UV levels to a warm, sunny day. UV radiation can also get through some clouds 😮
If you’re feeling as thirsty as a camel 🐫 it could be a sign of dehydration. Remember to keep up your fluids 🚰
