Sunscreen & Sun Exposure


         Overexposure to sunlight can be harmful to anyone young or old. Sometimes even a bad burn you developed as a child can have serious consequences later in life, by turning into skin cancer. We cannot always see the rays that are harming us either. Invisible rays called Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B can be harmful too. There is NO safe UV light. In reality, there is no such thing as a safe tan. Protect yourself and your family by applying sunscreen.  Applying sun screen can prevent skin damage as well as wrinkles, and the risk of developing skin cancer. Some newer sunscreens even protect against the invisible UVA & UVB rays.

       Sunscreen comes in all shapes and sizes. If you choose oil, spray, lotion or other form of sun screen the amount of protection depends on the Sun Protection Factor (SPF).  The higher the SPF the greater protection you have against UVB rays. However this does not increase the length of time for sun exposure. Proper use of sun screen includes, applying a half hour before going outside, reapplying every two hours, and sun screen should be applied generously to all exposed skin.
