Sunscreen should be applied every day to exposed skin, and not just if you are going to be in the sun. An SPF of at least 30 or higher is recommended and ideally with Mexoryl.
Sun protection is the principal means of preventing premature aging and skin cancer. In addition to wearing sun screen, other ways to protect your skin:
- Wear protective clothing (long sleeved shirts, wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses)
- Seek shade: remember that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 am and 4pm.
- Avoid tanning beds.
- Protect children from sun exposure by playing in the shade and applying sun screen.
