Sun Bum Sun Care Tips

Some helpful sun care tips, courtesy of Sun Bum:

  •        Apply sunscreen at least 30 mins. before going out in the sun to allow maximum absorption and protection

  •        Make sure you use enough and don’t neglect hard to reach and easily forgotten places like your ears, feet and upper back.  Recommended use, 3 tablespoons!

  •         Use an SPF of 15 or higher to help reduce the risk of skin cancer

  •       If you are taking a swim or sweating, use a water resistant sunscreen to keep you safe longer

  •         Even on cloudy days, 90% of UV rays can still get through and leave you fried

  •          Reflection off water can increase sun exposure by up to 50%

  •         We know it is tough, but try to limit your time in the sun from 10am to 2pm during the hot summer months

  •         Whenever possible, cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV blocking sunglasses.  Shade can reduce UV exposure by 50% or more

  •         Keep newborns out of the sun.  Sunscreen should only be used on children over the age of 6 months
