Default 10 tips for you before you go to in the sun!

Tip 1
Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a UVA/UVB Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
Tip 2
Avoid the sun between 10 AM and 4 PM, when ultraviolet rays are strongest.
Tip 3
Apply sunscreen over skin 30 minutes before going outdoors. Reapply every two hours when outside, even on cloudy days.
Tip 4
Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and tightly woven clothing such as long-sleeved shirts and pants.
Tip 5
Apply sunscreen during sports, even in winter. Use a spray sunscreen to prevent hands from becoming greasy.
Tip 6
Remember to be extra careful about your protection near reflective surfaces—snow, ice, and water— because they bounce back up to 85 percent of the sun’s damaging rays.
Tip 7
Protect children: minimize sun exposure early by applying sunscreen daily to children six months or older. Most sun damage is done by the age of 18.
Tip 8
Avoid tanning beds. A self-tanner alone doesn’t protect. Use a self-tanner with an SPF for the look without the risks of sun bathing. Spray-ons work best.
Tip 9
Wear a moisturizing sunscreen on your face year-round, preferably with an SPF of 15 or higher. Choose a fragrance-free, vitamin-enriched lotion that won’t clog pores. If you think creamy sunscreens make you look greasy apply one with powder format like Maybelline’s whitestay uv
Tip 10
Make sun protection part of your daily routine. It’s one of the best long-term investments you’ll ever

I don't know if i totally agree with this. Everyone has demonized the sun but now research is pointing to it being beneficial in moderation. The substances may cause cancer they use to make it - URL: Lauren Fornes: Sunscreen: Causes Cancer or Protects Against It?

Good article, and the Huffington Post can be a reliable source, however, over time, more research has shown the benefits of using sunsreeen vs. going without. As a very fair skinned red headed native Norwegian, I can personally state that one can see the difference when going out with sunscreen vs. without (i.e.: freckles, redness, etc.). Also, as a medical researcher I have read many studies that waver between the chemicals in sunscreens as well as the pros and cons. Most find it best to utilize the available protective products. I'll keep slathering up, but thanks very much for the info!

HuffPost reliable? I don't think so.


I don't think anyone would argue that a little sun here and there isn't good for you. But I think constant bombardment of UV rays day in and day out will take its toll on your skin. I'm someone that never burns but even I realize that it can't possibly be good to have excess sun striking my skin.

Did you know that when bacteria is put in a petri dish under UV rays for 5 hours they actually mutate??! The UV rays cause mutations of the strings of DNA! Why expose your skin to such dangers? I think anytime you're outside for periods of time you need sunblock and if you are someone with pale skin then you probably should wear it everyday whether or not you plan on being in the sun for long periods.

Humans are not nocturnal creatures. We are designed to withstand some amount of UV rays. The threshold varies person to person and moderation is important even if you are someone who does not generally get burns. Damage occurs at the cellular level which you will not see in the obvious form of a sunburn.

The Garnier sunscreen lotion is one of the best when you go out under the sun.
