What are the top reasons why you shouldn’t leave home without it?
- Pain. Sunburns hurt! We’ve all had at least one in our lives, and they can be very painful. Yes, there are plenty of remedies for reducing the pain and peeling, but wouldn’t the trip to the beach be more enjoyable without the pain?
- Aging. The number one cause of the signs of aging is unprotected sun exposure. We’re talking about wrinkles, dark spots, and overall premature aging. We spend millions of dollars on anti-aging treatments and corrective procedures, when many of these signs could be prevented from the beginning.
- Cancer. That should be scary enough in and of itself. Multiple blistering burns under the age of 18 can lead to an increased risk of cancer.
All of these can be summarized into one reason – PREVENTION. We all want to live long, healthy, productive lives and using sunscreen is one small step to help ensure this. Please remember – for your sunscreen to be at it’s most effective and protective it must be:
- Broad-spectrum – look at the label for UVA and UVB protection
- Applied in sufficient amounts – 1-2 ounces for your body and about 1 teaspoon
- Applied often enough – every two hours, and each time you get out of the water
