Information for Skin Protection

Try to stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are most concentrated.



In fact, one searing suntan doubles the danger of
skin cancer melanoma, so sun bathing should be avoided. Cover up with a wide hat, long sleeves and sunglasses that block UV rays.


Most important of all, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor SPF of at least 15, even when it’s cloudy.


Don’t forget to apply it to commonly missed areas, such as ears, nose and top of your feet.


Sun-sensitive individuals should look for even greater protection and use products like a good SPF 65 that provides full-spectrum protection by blocking both UVA and UVB.


The summer months pose unique challenges, constantly switching between dry indoor air and summer heat outdoors removes moisture from the skin.


While creams and lotions replace some of the lost moisture, it is far better to take steps to prevent moisture loss in the first place.


While in winter you should not continue using the same light body lotion and creams you used during the summer. Replace them with rich formula creams.
