Effective Sunscreen

Summer is fun. We think of having picnics, go to camping, bright shorty shorts, colorful flip flops, bikinis, the beach, and the sun. We feel alive and always excited as we go along with our daily runs. Though we enjoy the bright sun this time of the year, we cannot avoid to be exposed to Ultraviolet lights of the sun. UVA lights from the sun can damage the skin that causes premature aging, sunburn, and even the risk of skin cancer. Thus, using skin protection like sunscreens reduces the possibility of the mentioned risks.

Coppertone is the sunscreen agent that I find very effective. I am using it over the years. It has the highest SPF level. The newest product is the Coppertone Ultraguard Continuous Spray. The level of SPF is 70+, no rub needed, and no mess too. It is worth having as you enjoy the beautiful sun.

In addition, here are some tips that might help to reduce skin damage and skin cancer.

  1. Minimize sun exposure at midday and between the hours of 10:00AM and 3:00PM. – I heard about this from the expert. Since the sun’s heat is at its peak during these times, over sun exposure is not advisable.
  2. Use lip balm with SPF 15 or higher every day of the year to protect your lips. – It will also help moisturize your lips.
  3. Do not be fooled by clouds. – Even if it is cloudy between the hours mentioned above, ultraviolet rays still penetrate the clouds.
  4. Reapply sunscreen every two hours as possible. – Some sunscreens states to be waterproof, they will be wiped off on a towel or even sweat.

We should always remember that prevention is better than cure.
