Protect your skin. Summer sunscreen tips.
A little sunshine as we get, make sure you stay safe this summer and make sure you protect your skin with sunscreen.
Don’t skimp – You need to apply a shot glass-sized amount of suntan lotion in the morning, then reapply every couple of hours. Skimping means you aren’t protected!
High is not necessarily best – It’s better to reapply factor 30 every couple of hours than to apply factor 70 once.
Choose Broad Spectrum – These sunscreens provide the maximum protection against the widest range of UV wavelengths.
Don’t forget – the eyes, the tip of the nose, the tops of the feet, the lips, and near the hairline and scalp. These are the places people most commonly suffer sun-burn.
Apply even if you’re not at the beach – Incidental sun exposure from walking down the street, driving with the windows open and sitting in front of a window, account for most of our exposure to UV throughout our lives. Apply suntan lotion wherever you are!
Reapply – Even water-resistant sunscreen needs regular reapplication.
If it’s expired throw it out – Expired sunscreen breaks down and is less effective.
Use a high SPF moisturiser – Every day, even in the winter! It really is the best thing you can do to protect your skin daily.
