This weeks weather is calling for SUNSHINE and more SUNSHINE after Tuesday and we want to make sure you are aware and protected from the Sun's rays. Here is a news article from The Cancer Society with some important tips:
Cancer Society Asking us to Stay Sun Safe
Written by Francesca Arnold on Tuesday, 05 August 2014
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Saskatchewan. That is why it is important that we take the necessary precautions when it comes to skin safety during the hot summer months.
Brett Estey, Cancer Control Coordinator for The Canadian Cancer Society says that taking the extra steps to protect yourself and your family before you head out is very important, and that we don't have to avoid the sun or stay inside to be sun smart.
"Trying to avoid activities between the times of 11 and 4, that is when the sun is at it's strongest. Also trying to find shade, this is another good option in terms of protecting yourself," explains Estey. Sunscreen selection is also a huge component of sun safety.
"First of all, you want to look for something with at least an SPF 30, 30 will give you about 97% protection. You want to give yourself a good application, and also to reapply about every two hours," says Estey.
Estey says it's also important to remember that sunscreen alone won't do the job. Applying sunscreen in combination with wearing hats, long-sleeved shirts and sunglasses will be our best defense against sun damage.
But what if you still end up with a sunburn? Estey has a few tips to help alleviate the pain and stop any further damage caused by a sunburn, saying that the first step is to drink a lot of water, because your body will potentially be dehydrated, caring for your skin with lotions to help stop any pain or damage, and lastly take a lesson from the sunburn and always take precautions to keep your skin safe while spending time outdoors.
Also drink lots of water and stay in the shade if you can.
Sigh. Dreaded Raccoon Eyes.
A weekend full of outdoor events - golfing - slo-pitch tournament - and Candace has a spectacular pair of "raccoon eyes".
Here's her selfie:
Ok, maybe it's not so bad after all...
But seriously - it was severe enough to make a public appeal for help.

The Tribe is on a roll!
So - the Swift Current Indians have been swinging some hot bats lately.
Last night, new player Eric Sams (https://twitter.com/Esams10) hit a MONSTER homerun vs the Moose Jaw Miller Express...
Check out the footage here, from Snowstreaker Media on Tribe TV:
Eric Sams Monster Homerun July 8, 2014
The Tribe are in action again tonight & tomorrow night at HOME - 7:05pm each night - tonight, vs Saskatoon and tomorrow, vs Regina.
PS. If you see Luke Barry, #5 for the Indians, wish him a Happy Birthday! He's celebrating today!
Ain't THAT the truth?!
Seriously though - take some precautions if you're out in the heat. Candace went golfing yesterday at Elmwood Golf Club and her legs (and arms and face) are just at littttttle bit pink today.
Today's UV index calls for 9 - ever wonder exactly what Environment Canada means when they're talking about that?
Look no further!
There - the mystery is solved. Let's avoid situations like this:
Also - don't forget to hydrate well, because Groovin' In The Park with the City's Community Services department - tonight's activity is at 7pm at Elmwood Park, featuring Foot Stompin' Fitness presented by Speedy Creek Cloggers.
Thursday at 10am is Peripheral Heart Action Body Burn.
Stay sun safe!
