Each year, there are more than two million people diagnosed with skin cancer. No matter your age or race, sunscreen is an important aspect of sun safety. Wear sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun’s most harmful rays.
The two kinds of sun rays that reach the earth are ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA rays are responsible for wrinkles, sunspots, and other factors that age the skin. UVB rays usually lead to sunburns. The best way to protect yourself against both types of rays is to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. It is also important to apply sunscreen about fifteen minutes before going outside and to re-apply it every two hours.
