Sun Protection Factors You Need To Know
Sun protection is an important precaution to take, not only in the Summer but year-round. No matter the weather forecast it's important to apply sunscreen anytime you're planning on being outdoors for the day.
UV or Ultra Violet Radiation from the sun can cause serious health issues if you're not prepared with the proper sun protection. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and while anyone can get skin cancer, others are more susceptible to it than others. One way to protect yourself from developing skin cancer is to use a sun-protection lotion with SPF.
When choosing the sun protection that's right for you, consider these factors:
Broad-Spectrum Sun Protection: What you choose for the sun protection lotion for your face or sun protection for your body, matters. Consider that there are many sunscreens on the market that are not broad-spectrum. The FDA recommends using broad-spectrum sunscreen because they protect you from both types of damaging UV rays; UVB and UVA.
SPF-30 Or Higher Sun Protection: SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF measures sunscreen protection from UVB rays. However, it's not just UVB ray exposure that is dangerous to our skin, UVA rays are equally as damaging. Make sure to choose a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to protect yourself from the damaging UV rays of the sun. If you have fair skin or a history of skin cancer in your family, you may want to consider an SPF 50 sun protection lotion. SPF 50 sunscreens protect you from about 98% of UVB rays.
Water Resistant Does Not Mean Waterproof: There are many types of sun protection lotions for your skin that are water-resistant, however, this does not mean waterproof. Understanding the difference between water-resistant versus waterproof can be potentially life-saving. It's very important that no matter what broad-spectrum sun protection you use, you continue to reapply throughout the day. It's important to reapply your sunscreen throughout the day. Apply after being in the water or drying off your body, as doing so often will remove the sun protection lotion from your skin.
Be Cautious What You're Putting On Your Skin: There are many different types of sun protection creams, lotions, and sprays you can purchase online or at your local store. Before you use any sun protection, aside from using an SPF-30 or higher broad-spectrum lotion, pay attention to the ingredients. A recent study showed a carcinogen found in some popular sunscreens and after-sun products including Neutrogena. Always pay close attention to the sun protection products you're applying to your and your family's skin.
