10 Tips for protecting your skin

Tip 1

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a UVA/UVB Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.

Tip 2

Avoid the sun between 10 AM and 4 PM, when ultraviolet rays are strongest.

Tip 3

Spread sunscreen over skin 30 minutes before going outdoors. Reapply every two hours when outside, even on cloudy days.

Tip 4

Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and tightly woven clothing such as long-sleeved shirts and pants.

Tip 5

Apply sunscreen during sports, even in winter. Use a spray sunscreen to prevent hands from becoming greasy.

Tip 6

Remember to be extra careful about your protection near reflective surfaces—snow, ice, and water— because they bounce back up to 85 percent of the sun’s damaging rays.

Tip 7

Protect children: minimize sun exposure early by applying sunscreen daily to children six months or older. Most sun damage is done by the age of 18.

Tip 8

Avoid tanning beds. A self-tanner alone doesn’t protect. Use a self-tanner with an SPF for the look without the risks of sun bathing. Spray-ons work best.

Tip 9

Wear a moisturizing sunscreen on your face year-round, preferably with an SPF of 15 or higher. Choose a fragrance-free, vitamin-enriched lotion that won’t clog pores.

Tip 10

Make sun protection part of your daily routine. It’s one of the best long-term investments you’ll ever make!
