Let’s Soak Up That Sun.. with SPF
Summer is just around the corner and the sun is stronger than ever! Sunscreen is an FDA-Regulated product that needs to pass specific tests before they are sold. Here are some tips on what to know about how to protect yourself from harsh sun rays!
Sun Protection Tips:
American Cancer Society
Skin Cancer Foundation
1. The UV rays are strongest between 10am & 4pm
Check the strength by using the shadow test: if your shadow is shorter than you are, the sun’s rays are at their strongest! Staying in the shade is the best way to steer clear of the harsh sun.
2. Sunscreen Expires!
On average, sunscreen lasts between 2-3 years. Especially if it has been exposed to heat (i.e. glove box or car trunk), it may be less effective.
3. Choose “Broad Spectrum” Protection!
This label means that is protects against both UVA and UVB rays!
4. Ingredients Matter!
Make sure your sunscreens include active ingredients such as zinc and titanium.
