Keep your sunny disposition this summer - avoid a sunburn!


Now that summer is almost here, sun safety is more important than ever. Follow these five sunscreen tips to protect against a sunburn.
 

  1. Choose a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum UV protection and is water-resistant. Pick one that has an SPF of 30 or more.
  2. Lotion, spray, gel, cream or ointment? It doesn’t matter, as long as you use it – and reapply every two hours.
  3. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes BEFORE you go outside.
  4. Check the expiration date. Unless indicated by an expiration date, all sunscreens should be good for three years.
  5. Don’t forget your lips! Apply a lip balm that has an SPF of 30 or higher.
