The solstice heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. This year, the solstice falls on June 21, at 6:51am EDT. The summer solstice is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.
While for many of us summer means fun in the sun with swimming, going to the beach, and barbequing; it's important to make sure you're not getting too much of a good thing. Avoid the consequences of overexposure to the sun like sunburns, premature aging of the skin, wrinkling, and skin cancer, including melanoma by practicing proper sun protection.
