Use Sunscreen for Your Work Environment

If you work outside regularly, you understand the importance of good sun protection. Hats, sunglasses, protective clothing are all essential for a long day outside in the sun. It’s also important to use sunscreen if you work inside or are in and out during the day. However, sunscreen is often not utilized as much or often as it should be, which is a serious problem. Using sunscreen should be as normal as clocking in at your job or checking your email when you get to the office. With Rocky Mountain Sunscreen’s bulk sunscreen options, you can always keep sunscreen on hand. Order your bulk sunscreen today and prevent and protect from sun damage!

Outdoor Work

Are you a gardener, groundskeeper, or lifeguard? Being in the sun all day might just part of your job description, but it’s essential to ensure that you use sunscreen on a daily basis. The CDC has a helpful infographic about sun protection for outdoor workers, and refreshing yourself on the directions for sun safety can help you stay current on helpful tips for sun protection. In addition to using a broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly, using sun protective clothing or long sleeves and pants, UV 100 sunglasses, and wide-brimmed hats will also reduce your sun exposure dramatically. The Skin Cancer Foundation has easy-to-follow guidelines that should be implemented every day when you show up to work.

Indoor/Outdoor Work

If you spend part of your day indoors and the other half outside, it’s still important to be vigilant about sun protection. Stepping in and outside if you’re a waiter or waitress, walking to or from classes as a teacher, or showing properties as a real estate agent expose you to plenty of sunlight and radiation. Therefore, ensuring that you have sunscreen on-hand and are reapplying regularly will ensure that you’re protected from sun damage. Rocky Mountain Sunscreen has portable sizes of sunscreen that will easily fit into a pocket or clip onto a belt loop, purse, or backpack so you’ll never be without sunscreen. It’s also essential to keep sunglasses with at least UV 100 and a hat on hand if you plan to be in the sun for longer than a few minutes.

Indoor Work

Working in an office or a indoor environment might mislead you and make you think that you’re safe from the sun, but you can still be exposed to sun radiation indoors. If you work near a window or glass door, or even walk, drive, or ride public transportation to your office, you’re still being exposed to sunlight. By keeping a bottle of sunscreen on your desk or near your work environment, you can combat the effects of sun exposure. A quart pump of Rocky Mountain Sunscreen is the perfect size to keep on hand so you won’t run out quickly.

Being in the sun, whether directly or in your office, is a part of your job. Skin cancer and sun damage doesn’t have to be, and by utilizing these tips every day, you can reduce your exposure to harmful sun radiation. Don’t hesitate to protect yourself. Order your sunscreen from Rocky Mountain Sunscreen today so you’ll never be without sun protection on the job!
