Today is National Sunscreen Day!
Here are 9 facts about sunscreen that might come in handy this upcoming weekend.
Broad spectrum sunscreens are best, this means they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30 block 97% of the sun's rays.
No sunscreen is waterproof or sweat proof. At best, sunscreens are water resistant with a range of 40 minutes to 80 minutes. The AAD recommends reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours.
Children under 6 months typically should not wear sunscreen. This is due to the fact that infants have more sensitive skin.
Sunscreen is only one tool to help reduce exposure to the UV rays. You can also wear protective clothing, stay in the shade, and avoid going outside for extended periods when the sun is most intense.
Most people do not apply enough sunscreen. It is recommended to apply a teaspoon amount to the face and approximately one ounce to cover other exposed areas.
Sunscreen expires, many can last up to three years. However, if the color or consistency change, it's time to throw it out.
Spray-on sunscreens are not always effective. Current FDA regulations on testing and standardization do not apply to spray on sunscreen.
