Why is sunscreen important?

Sunscreen plays a critical role in a happy, healthy lifestyle.

90% of visible signs of aging are due to sun damage. 

Up to 20% of the sun's harmful rays can penetrate your skin, even on a cloudy day! 


10 am - 2 pm is when the sun's rays are the strongest. 

Use caution near water, snow, and sand! They reflect the damaging rays of the sun and that can increase your chance of sunburn.

 

Apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes before going outdoors. Use sunscreen year-round, whether it's sunny or cloudy. 

 

1 ounce of sunscreen (about two tablespoons) is recommended when in a swimsuit or minimally dressed. Also, add a nickel-size dollop to your neck and face.
