Remember to take care of your skin in the sun with these sun facts:
- Protecting your skin is important
Sun protection keeps your skin looking its best – the harmful effects of UV rays build up over time. Make sun care a part of your daily routine.
- Be sure to apply a luxurious amount
Your face requires about a teaspoon of sunscreen for the best coverage, while your arms and legs require about a tablespoon. Adjust accordingly for the torso. For maximum protection, wait for it to soak in (15 to 30 minutes) before indulging in the sun.
- Reapply often, at least every two hours
Sweating, swimming, and towel drying can remove sunscreen from your skin's surface, so be sure to reapply and lather up when needed.
- Achieve your perfect color by being sun smart
If you are looking for a glow, make sure it's a healthy one. Start by using a high SPF to build color slowly and safely.
- Remember that timing is everything
The sun is strongest between the hours of 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, so be extra sure to protect yourself during these hours.
