DCMF partners with Cabana Life

 

We are proud to partner with Cabana Life to raise awareness of the importance of sun protection and UPF clothing throughout Melanoma Awareness Month!

Melanoma 

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer affecting people of all ages. While the incidence of most cancers is decreasing, it is increasing for melanoma. This can change! Melanoma is both preventable and treatable when detected early.

 

Protecting your skin 

Since the majority of melanoma cases are caused by exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, protecting your skin from UV light is the most effective way to reduce your risk. Here’s how:

  1. Reduce your time outdoors between 11am and 3pm or when the UV Index is 3 or more
  2. Seek shade
  3. Cover up with long clothing, UPF clothing and hats
  4. Wear sunglasses
  5. Wear sunscreen
  6. Do not use indoor tanning equipment

UPF clothing 

If you want extra protection when you cover up, we recommend wearing UPF clothing. What is UPF clothing? UPF clothing is clothing that has sun protection built into the fabric.  UPF stands for ‘ultraviolet protection factor’. UPF is the numerical rating given to clothing to show how effectively it blocks UV radiation. The highest UPF rating clothing can receive is 50+. Clothing with a UPF 50+ rating offers excellent sun protection blocking 97.5% of UV radiation.
