Sun Protection Washington DC

If you’re going to hit a patio tonight for a well-deserved shot of vitamin D, then please go protected. Everyone wants to enjoy the warm sun, but no one wants to be left with wrinkles, dull, blotchy skin, or worse – skin cancer. So wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 if you’re going outside. And if you’ll be outside for any length of time, bring it with you and reapply, reapply, reapply!

Summer skin tips

If you’re going to hit a patio tonight for a well-deserved shot of vitamin D, then please go protected. Everyone wants to enjoy the warm sun, but no one wants to be left with wrinkles, dull, blotchy skin, or worse – skin cancer. So wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 if you’re going outside. And if you’ll be outside for any length of time, bring it with you and reapply, reapply, reapply!

Tips for Protecting your Skin

  • Apply your sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you head outside.
  • Reapply every 2 hours if you continue to be outside.
  • Protect the delicate area around your eyes with sunscreen, hats and sunglasses – the wraparound kind give the most protection.
  • Remember, just because it’s cloudy outside doesn’t mean you don’t need sunscreen.
  • Bring an awning, umbrella or tarp with you to the beach. It will give you and your family shelter from the sun.
  • Remember, pets can get sunburned too, bring an umbrella for shelter and plenty of water for Fido, and wet him down in the water to keep him cool. Don’t keep your best friend on the beach too long, he may get dehydrated.
  • The sun is at its highest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., so try to avoid being outside during this peak time.
