Beauty Tips to Save Your Skin

Wearing sunscreen daily is a must to lower your risk of developing skin cancer.

But the type you choose and how you apply it makes a difference, too.

Go for Broad Protection:
The label should say "broad spectrum" or "UVA/UVB protection." (Or just look for the new skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.) The reason: UVB rays cause you to burn and increase your risk of skin cancer, but UVA rays break down skin elasticity, which causes wrinkles and lines.

Any suncreen you buy should also have an SPF of at least 15 which means that you can theoretically stay out in the sun 15 times as long as you could without any protection before burning. (SPF 30 is even better.)  Remember to reapply at least every two hours.

Put Sunscreen Everywhere:
Like the skin on and behind your ears, the tops of your feet and the part in your hair.  Many people forget about these sensitive areas, which can result in painful burns and the possibility of cancerous growth.  Another effective way to protect easy to forget areas?  Wear a wide brimmed hat.

Don't Save Sunscreen For the Beach:
Sun damage is cumulative and every little bit counts, so remember to apply before outdoor activities like gardening and walking the dog.  A good rule:  Anytime you're going to be outdoors for longer then 10 minutes (especially during the peak of the day), make sure to cover up.

Sensitive Skin? Skip Gels and Water Proof Formulas:

Gels typically have more alcohol, as well as an ingredient called propylene glycol, which many people are allergic to. Waterproof is also a potential problem. Water can't get in, but sweet can't get out which can cause breakouts. Also with sensitive skin it is better to use a sunscreen just for faces  it will help eliminate breakouts.

*2,000,000+ people are diagnosed with skin cancer in the United States each year.
