Do You Know How to Select the Right Sunscreen?

Choosing the right sunscreen can help reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.

We love these 5 easy tips for choosing your next bottle:

  1. Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen, which means it protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays.
  2. Choose SPF 30 or higher.
  3. Choose water resistant or very water resistant for up to 40-80 minutes. Sunscreens should be reapplied.
  4. Use one ounce of sunscreen (about the amount in a shot glass) to cover the body.
  5. Shop for sunscreen at the on-site SMD skin care boutique!
