Summertime is here in Georgia! With that comes Braves games, cook outs, and strong UV rays. Therefore, it’s important to protect your skin from sun damage and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. This can be achieved through seeking shade, wearing a hat and sunglasses, and applying sunscreen.
With so many sunscreen options on the market, how do you know which one to choose? The Cleveland Clinic dermatologist recommends selecting a brand that offers “broad spectrum” protection, meaning it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. You should also choose a sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher if you plan to be outside for more than a few minutes and reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.
