National UV Safety Month

The skin is the body's largest organ. It protects against heat, sunlight, injury, and infection. Yet, some of us don't consider the necessity of protecting our skin. The need to protect your skin from the sun has become very clear over the years, supported by several studies linking overexposure to the sun with skin cancer. UV rays are their strongest from 10 am to 4 pm Seek shade during those times to ensure the least amount of harmful UV radiation exposure. When applying sunscreen be sure to reapply to all exposed skin at least 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating. When planning your outdoor activities, you can decide how much sun protection you need by checking the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) UV index.

Save Time on Your Social Media Marketing

Social media management tools, known as social media dashboards, give you a single-screen or compact view of multiple social networks or different views of the same social network, such as your Twitter feed, direct messages and notifications on Twitter. Each dashboard tool strives to be compatible with as many social networks as possible. Some tools help you monitor and respond to multiple accounts from a single screen while others focus more on letting you schedule posts, saving you time on your marketing.
