Sunscreen 101: How effective is YOUR sunscreen?

FACT: A poor quality sunscreen may prevent sunburn, but won’t shield skin from UVA rays that cause skin aging and possibly melanoma.    https://is.gd/PGr3bF

Sun safety and kids

(Novant Health)   Much of a person’s risk for melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer — comes from their sun exposure as a child.  Healthy sun-protection habits come in three forms slip, slap, slop.

*Slip on protective clothing, like long-sleeve shirts and long pants with an adequate UV (ultraviolet radiation) protection factor.  UV protection factor (UPF) is the clothing equivalent of sun protection factor (SPF) for sunscreen.

*Next, slap on a hat — not just a baseball cap — to protect your face, head, ears and neck. And don’t forget to protect your eyes with sunglasses.

*Last, but not least, slop on sunscreen — and use plenty of it to cover all your exposed skin. Then reapply it every few hours and after swimming.   https://is.gd/6Se4aE
