Fun Facts for Facebook – “Fun in the Sun” Edition

summer facebook facts

It’s that time of year again. To prepare properly, we have some ideas for “Fun in the Sun” sharing. For your patients scrolling through Facebook during a vacation, checking out their News Feed during a school summer break or just distracting themselves while stuck indoors, here are some fun facts you might consider sharing this summer.

New Call-to-action

  • Wearing sunglasses blocks up to 99% of UV rays, which can easily cause damage to the eye. So now you have a legitimate medical reason to get those new shades!
  • Children should wear a sunscreen of at least SPF30 when outdoors, even if the sun isn’t shining. Overcast skies can be just as damaging to the skin as sunny skies.
  • Watermelon is a particularly refreshing summer treat because it has such high water content – 92% water and 8% sugar. This high water content can also help clean your teeth and gums.
  • If you’re near a beach, consider taking a swim! The ocean’s salt water decreases bacteria in your mouth, providing a healthy oral environment.
  • While you don’t want too much sun, casual and limited sun exposure can be beneficial to your smile, since it increases Vitamin D.
  • Here’s a great reason to chew gum (sugar-free, of course): It promotes the production of saliva to help you stay hydrated during the hot summer months.
  • Play it safe around fireworks! There are 8,500 fireworks-related injuries in the U.S. each year.

As always, we’ll be adding new content to our pages for physicians, dentists and orthodontists throughout the season.

Have a safe and fun summer!
