Exert: Staying Safe in the Sun

by Dana on June 22, 2010

Summer has arrived here in the Bay Area and many cities across the US are seeing temperatures in low 90s with little-to-no cloud cover which means it’s imperative that everyone stays as safe in the sun as possible.

Staying informed about the latest on sunscreens is also very important and the Environmental Working Group put out its annual report on  sunscreens as well as a list of the best beach and sport sunscreens so that you can easily find one to suit your needs. If you want to see how your sunscreen rates or find different options, then check out their tool that lets you find your sunscreen.

Regardless of how you decide to keep your skin safe, remember not only to apply sunscreen liberally but also every two hours throughout your time in the sun; and don’t forget to include those often forgotten areas: the tops of your ears, the back of your neck, and the tops of your feet.

Stay safe and have fun!
