All You Need To Know About SUN Protection

Coppertone NutraShield for Faces offers not only sun protection by anti-oxidants to aid in skin repair. I especially love that in comes in an spf of 70. And you can find formulas for both the body and face. This is perfect for those concerned with premature aging. If you use this, you can skip moisturizer because all your skin needs are met with this single product.


A friend of mine who has very, very sensitive skin can only use Aveeno. This brand used to be known for its lotion but has branched out to include a variety of gentle products including sunscreens. I love the Positively Ageless Sunscreen for the face, with an SPF of 70. My kids like the Active sunscreen. The sprays are genius for soccer games and outdoor activities. Just a quick spray down and they are protected.

I have Aveeno sunscreen in the bathroom downstairs, upstairs and within easy reach of being outside in the yard.

Neutrogena has a formula for whatever your sun care need may be. Whether or not you have a baby with soft innocent skin, or you are sweating outside, or want the highest possible SPF for your face (I do!) or need a cooling spray, Neutrogena has it all. Last summer I was dying to get my grubby hands on the dry spray. I can't stand sticky or oily sunscreens. Lucky for us, technology has improved so much that most sunscreens whether they are a lotion or spray, absorb quickly. There's no excuse for forgetting sunscreen every day. I'm talking cloudy days, days when you aren't going to the beach, days when you are inside and only running out for the mail.
Each morning, I reach for my Neutrogena Faces spf 90 and pat it over my face, chest and hands. I also use Murad Moisturizing Lotion for Oily Skin on my T zone.

The Facts:
53,792 people in the United States were diagnosed with melanomas of the skin, 30,544 of them men and 23,248 of them women

8,345 people in the United States died of melanomas of the skin, 5,283 of them men and 3,062 of them women.

Only 56% of adults practiced at least one of the three sun-protective behaviors (use sunscreen, wear sun-protective clothing, or seek shade).
Who forgot the sunscreen?




Risk Factors
People with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop skin cancer:
People who have excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, usually from the sun (but also from tanning lamps and booths) * A lighter natural skin color. * Family history of skin cancer. * A personal history of skin cancer. * Exposure to the sun through work and play. * A history of sunburns early in life. * Skin that burns, freckles, reddens easily, or becomes painful in the sun. * Blue or green eyes. * Blond or red hair. * Certain types and a large number of moles. *



What You Can Do:
Avoid sun exposure during between 10 am and 4 pm. * Always wear sunscreen with UVB and UVA exposure protective chemicals and with SPF 15 or higher, even on cloudy days. * Apply at least one ounce — about a shot glass full — of sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun, and reapply frequently — at least every two hours if in continuous sunlight. * Wear sunglasses treated to absorb ultraviolet (UV) radiation, use a lip balm with an SPF of at least 15.
Have a routine whole-body skin check by a health care professional once a year.
