TIPS TO BE SMART ABOUT SUN PRODTECTION

1. Understand what SPF means.
One measure of SPF is HOW LONG a sunscreen will protect against sunburn. For instance, SPF of 30 would allow you to stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without protection.

2. Re-Apply. Re-Apply. Re-Apply.
Sunscreen absorbs UV radiation by converting it into heat. Once the sunscreen has been converted, it dissipates and has no more protection.

3. Know your zinc.
Have you noticed the lack of the word "sunblock” on the shelves lately? Sunscreens can no longer be labeled as “sunblocks” because it simply is not true. Two ingredients, zinc and titanium dioxide, actually scatter and reflect UV rays like a layer of armor. These mineral ingredients are the key to safe and effective sun protection.

4. Understand water resistance.
Labels can no longer say "waterproof" or "sweat proof" because it simply is not true. Reapplication is key.
