Updated Sun Safety Tips!

These are equally helpful for your children AND you!

  • Use the shade, hats, and clothing for protection (especially for young children and infants).
  • Avoid peak sun hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.).
  • When buying sunscreen look for broad spectrum to cover both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use at least SPF 15, but there isn’t really a benefit to SPF over 50.
  • Use about 1 oz. of sunscreen (a shot glass) for a young adult.
  • Apply 15-20 minutes prior to sun exposure.
  • All sunscreen needs to be reapplied after two hours.
  • Water resistant sunscreen only lasts 40 or 80 minutes (as labeled).
  • Don’t forget lip balm with SPF and sunglasses that are UV protective.
