The warming weather beckons us all outside, but don’t expose yourself to premature aging and unnecessary sun damage! We all know that sunscreens provide protection from UV rays and are crucial to helping prevent sunburn and skin cancers, but how do you choose the right one for you?
If you want to keep your skin healthy and younger looking you need a solar defense strategy. Live safely under the sun this summer and protect yourself by practicing good sun sense year round.
With the new FDA rules, sunscreens can no longer be labeled 'waterproof,' 'sweatproof,' 'sunblock' or claim instant protection. Products labeled 'water resistant' are required to state how long the they should maintain their SPF level while swimming or sweating, either 40 or 80 minutes.
Replace any unused sunscreens each year to assure you're getting the best protection. Sunscreen ingredients break down over time, especially when exposed to heat.
In addition to Sunscreen products, we carry a variety of moisturizers and cosmetics that feature sun protection.
