  • tablespoons. You should apply

    sunscreen about 30 minutes

    before you go outside. If you

    are active, whether in the

    water or out, you should also

    reapply sunscreen often.

    There are sunscreens designed

    to be water-resistant or

    sweat-resistant. These

    usually specify the length of

    time they are effective. In

    addition to putting on

    sunscreen, here are a few

    other ways to protect yourself

    from the suns rays:

    Try to stay out of the sun

    during the hottest parts of

    the day. Typically, this is

    between 10 AM and 4 PM.

    Cover up your skin as

    much as possible. This

    includes wearing a

    brimmed hat and


    Talk to your healthcare

    provider about getting a

    skin exam by a

    professional every year.

    Sunscreen is important for skin

    cancer prevention. The use of

    sunscreen every day can help

    prevent skin cancer and signs

    of early aging caused by the

    Now that it is getting warmer

    outside, you may start thinking

    about wearing sunscreen. Did

    you know that you should

    wear sunscreen every day you

    are outside? That includes

    even in the middle of winter.

    Sunscreen is important for

    protection from sunburn, early

    aging and skin cancer. It works

    by protecting you from the

    ultraviolet rays that come from

    the sun. Specifically it protects

    the skin from two different

    types of radiation: UVA and

    UVB. UVA or Ultraviolet A is

    the type of ray that causes the

    skin to age and creates lasting

    skin damage. UVB or

    Ultraviolet B rays cause

    sunburns. They both can

    cause skin cancer. When you

    see a sunscreen that is labeled

    broad spectrum, it means

    that the sunscreen protects

    from both UVA and UVB rays.

    When selecting a sunscreen,

    the Skin Cancer Foundation

    and the American Cancer

    Society recommend an SPF of

    30 or higher. The SPF, or Sun

    Protection Factor, is a measure

    of how long the skin can be in

    the sun before it starts to burn.

    The higher the number, the

    greater the protection. For

    example, an SPF of 45 means

    that you would be able to stay

    outside in the sun 45 times

    longer without getting burned.

    However, sunscreens lose their

    effectiveness so you need to

    reapply every 2 hours. The

    recommendation is for the

    application of about 1 ounce of

    sunscreen for the average
