Not All Sunscreens Are Created Equal: What to Keep in Mind!

Not all sunscreens are created equal. Here's what you need to know!

  • It’s important to choose a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30. 
  • The higher the elevation you're at, the higher the SPF you need. 
  • Also, think about your activities for the day. Will you be going swimming? Make sure you choose a water-resistant sunscreen. 
  • Going to be active in the sun, getting sweaty? Look for a sunscreen that is sweat-resistant. 
  • Just remember these don’t last all day. It’s extremely important to reapply sunscreen to keep your skin safe.

Sunscreen – wear it!
