How often should I wear sunscreen?
Daily use of sun protection can significantly reduce the potential health risks associated with exposure to UV rays and can help prevent long-term damage.
UVB rays are the burning rays and are stronger during the summer months. The UVA rays that cause long-term damage to the skin are prevalent year-round. IR rays are the invisible, heat rays that affect your skin much like a heat lamp. Look for products that offer protection from all three.
Be aware of incidental sun exposure. This occurs during such routine activities as walking the dog or standing outside chatting with a neighbor.
