Sun Safety

Sun Protection Education

  • Sunscreen combines ingredients to protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation.  There are two types of UV rays:
    • Ultraviolet (UV) A: Longer wavelength causing lasting skin damage, skin aging and can cause skin cancer.
    • Ultraviolet (UV) B: Shorter wavelength causing burning, skin damage and can cause skin cancer.
    • Broad spectrum formulas protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
    • Sun Protection Factor (SPF) measures a sunscreen’s ability to protect the skin from UVB rays.  For instance, an SPF 15 will protect your skin from burning up to 15 times longer that it would take for your skin to burn without SPF protection.
    • By using sunscreen on a regular basis, you give your skin a break from fighting off UV rays and enable it to begin healing from previous skin damage.
    • Miami Beach suncare water resistant products protect your skin for up to 80 minutes of swimming or sweating.  For best results, sunscreen should be reapplied at least every two hours.

Important Tips for Properly Applying Sunscreen

  • Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure
  • Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating
  • Reapply at least every two hours
  • Apply sprays to your face by hand

  • Reapply every 1-2 hours to ensure appropriate skin protection
