The ABCs of Sunscreen (Part 2)


B. Tips For Applying Sunscreen:

 

  • Average-sized adults and children need about 1 ounce of sunscreen (the size of a shot glass) to effectively cover exposed areas. 
  • Apply sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. This will give it time to effectively absorb into the skin. 
  • Apply evenly to uncovered skin. Remember your ears, nose, lips, back of neck, along your hairline, hands and top of feet. Avoid the skin around your eyes. 
  • Apply to the top of the head if hair is thinning, or wear a hat. 
  • Reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours for maximum protection. 
  • If you're in the water or sweating, reapply water-resistant sunscreen as instructed on the label (either every 40 or 80 minutes). 
  • Spray sunscreens may present a safety concern if inhaled unintentionally. Never spray directly onto the face. Instead, spray it onto your hands and then apply. 

C. Wear Protective Clothing: 

 

  • Tightly woven, light colored fabrics offer the most protection. 
  • Cover as much of the body as possible: Long-sleeve shirts, pants, shoes, hats and sunglasses. 
  • Wide-brimmed hats (optimally a 4" brim) made of opaque, tightly woven material offer the most protection. If light shines through the hat, it won't offer enough coverage. 
  • Wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection. Make sure children's sunglasses have 100% UV protection as well.
