Summer is quickly approaching.    On some days in Arizona, it feels like it’s already here.    Sunny days are ahead.

Now is the time to start thinking about sunscreen.    Wearing it all year long is a great idea, but for those who think about it more when they feel the heat, now is the time.

  • Limit Exposure

MayoClinic.org, says,

“Skin cancer — the abnormal growth of skin cells — most often develops on skin exposed to the sun.”

It goes on to say what to do to reduce the risk, by stating,

“You can reduce your risk of skin cancer by limiting or avoiding exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.”

Sunscreen will help you reduce and avoid that exposure.

  • Choosing a Sunscreen

Choose a sunscreen that has a high SPF.    What is that?    SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Although there seems to be controversy on this, generally the higher the better.    A sunscreen with less chemicals in it, for many, is a better choice.

SPF measures how well a sunscreen protects against UVB rays (the radiation that causes sunburn and damages skin) and UVA rays (also damages the skin, but deeper).     According to Skincancer.org/prevention/uva-and-uvb,

“UVA, which penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging), …”

Have fun in the sun, but be proactive and take steps to protect yourself and your whole family by buying and using a high quality sunscreen.
