Sunscreen 101


SPF is a rating for sunscreens and stands for Sun Protection Factor. An SPF of 30 means you can stay in the sun 30 times as long as you could without sunscreen or sunblock. SPF only measures UVB protection, not UVA which can also be harmful. When using sunscreen, always remember these three important things:
   1. Apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside
   2. Reapply it every 1 to 2 hours
   3. Use the recommended amount (1 shotglass or 2 ounces per adult per application)10 Ways To Safely Enjoy The Sun
