Properly applying sunscreen is an important part of skin cancer prevention as well as an essential step in slowing down the aging process for your skin. Before even applying sunscreen, make sure that you are using a product that offers an SPF of 30 or higher and has not expired. To make sure that you distribute enough sunscreen to all exposed areas of the body, try to use at least one ounce, or roughly the amount of product that fits into your palm.
As the experts in this video explain, it is a must to cover parts of the body that are often times overlooked, such as the tops of the feet, the legs, and the ears. To ensure that every exposed part of the body remains safe under the harsh sun, reapply every two hours. To learn more about preventing sunburns and sun cancer , call Swinyer-Woseth at (801) 266-8841.
