Winter is over and the sun's rays are more powerful starting right now. ‪#‎sunscreen‬ is important to use every time you will be exposed to direct sun for more than just a few minutes. Check out the undeniable effect the sun had on this long time truck driver's facial skin through this article in The New England Journal of Medicine. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm1104059

Stingray season is approaching. “Skate” in the sand to help scare off sting rays but if you still happen to get a tail sting to the foot or ankle, here is what you can do:
1) Soak the sting (usually on the foot or ankle) in a bucket of very warm water. This helps dissipate the toxin that is causing the pain.
2) Make sure the wound is clean to prevent infection. If you are not allergic to iodine, mix some, or a similar antiseptic from a local pharmacy store, into the bucket of warm water. 
3) Some lingering discomfort is expected but on rare occasions, part of the sting ray’s barb may still be in the wound. You should see a doctor who can x-ray the wound.
