Numbers matter. When selecting a sunscreen, look for a minimum SPF of 30, as well as high UVA protection. If you tend to get dark spots, look for Infrared and Visible Light protection, too.
DON’T GO EASY ON THE SUNSCREEN
Sunscreen factors are tested assuming about a shot- glass full of product applied. Be generous when slathering it on.
MORE IS MORE
Reapply every hour or two, and after swimming.
SKIN-FRIENDLY HELPS YOU BE BETTER
Sunscreens like Armada that feel light and comfortable on the skin, and that won’t break you out in bumps or a rash, help you be better about regular and proper application.
SHUN THE SUN
You get enough vitamin D from 15 minutes of sun exposure plus nutritional supplements. Stay out of the sun, particularly from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you’re sensitive to chemical (more correctly called “organic”) sunscreens, try physical or inorganic products like Armada Baby 50+.
SEE YOUR DERMATOLOGIST
Annually, particularly if someone in your family has had skin cancer, and immediately if you notice a mole or spot that has changed in size, shape or color.
