What Is The Difference Between UVA And UVB Rays?
UVA rays, or aging rays, can lead to premature aging such as fine lines or dark spots. UVB rays, or burning rays, are the primary cause of sunburns. It is important to protect your skin against both UVA and UVB rays because both can cause skin cancer.
When Do You Apply Sunscreen?
It is important to apply sunscreen any time that you are going to be exposed to the sun’s UV rays whether this is a short drive to work or a long day at the beach. Start by applying sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before you are going to be exposed to the sun and apply to any uncovered area. Make sure not to forget smaller areas such as your ears, lips and scalp.
How Often Do You Need To Reapply Sunscreen?
Most sunscreens are meant to be reapplied every 2 hours, but it is important to reapply sunscreen after dips in the water, sweating or doing other activities that will remove the UV protection and leave your skin vulnerable to the damage of UV rays.
What Is The Best SPF To Use?
Dermatologists recommend using a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Higher SPFs do not mean that the product lasts longer so make sure to still reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.
