Protecting Yourself From the Colorado Sun Exposure

Posted on: July 6th, 2015

At 5,280 feet above sea level, Denver is known as the Mile High City, which means Coloradan’s are closer to the sun than most. For every 1,000 feet above sea level, ultraviolet exposure increases anywhere between 4-10%. Spending time unprotected under the sun increases your chances of skin cancer, along with early aging. More than 1 million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every year, 90%  of which, are caused by sun exposure.

People in Colorado live an active outdoor lifestyle, so not only do we live closer to the sun, we also spend a great deal of time outdoors. Swingle wants to inform you the importance of why we should protect ourselves from harmful sun exposure.

How to Best Protect Yourself From Sun Exposure:

Why You Should Protect Yourself From Sun Exposure:

As Coloradans, we live an outdoor lifestyle and enjoy close to 300 days of sunshine a year on average. When you spend a lot of time outside and you’re closer to the sun, it’s easier to damage and burn your skin. The harmful effects of the sun can be very dangerous and even life threatening but taking a few proactive steps will ensure you can enjoy the outdoors safely.
