Beauty Tip: Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

You’ve heard it before — wearing sunscreen is vital to keeping skin healthy and young looking. It also helps prevent skin cancer.

“Both intermittent, intense exposure (the kind you get on vacation on a sunny isle, often leading to sunburn) and chronic lifetime exposure add to skin cancer risk,” according to SkinCancer.org.

And don’t forget that it’s important to still wear sunscreen on cloudy days.

“Sunscreen should not be neglected on overcast days, as 70-80 percent of the sun’s rays — above all, long-spectrum UVA rays — go through clouds and fog,” states the website.

So what’s the best SPF for sunscreen to keep you safe?

“The Skin Cancer Foundation considers SPFs of 15 or higher acceptable UVB protection for normal everyday activity,and SPFs of 30 or higher acceptable for extended or intense outdoor exposures,” according to SkinCancer.org.
