￼Even though summer is winding down it is important to protect your skin from the dangerous effects of the sun! The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using SPF 30. Use enough sunscreen to generously coat all skin that will not be covered by clothing. Follow the guideline of “one ounce, enough to fill a shot glass”, which dermatologists consider the amount needed to cover the exposed areas of the body. Apply the sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes before going outdoors. Re-apply sunscreen approximately every two hours or after swimming or sweating heavily.
