Apply sunscreen at least 20 to 30 minutes before going outdoors. If you can do it an hour ahead of time, that’s even better.
Choose a sunscreen with advanced protection which provides you with powerful protection from both skin-aging UVA and skin-burning UVB rays. Banana Boat® products with AvoTriplex™ Technology are highly photostable, meaning the ingredients won’t break down under the sun.
Know that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Protect yourself appropriately. Also know that you should use sunscreen no matter what time you go out to enjoy a bright day.
Don’t forget those often-missed spots like your lips, where skin is much thinner than the rest of your face.
Don’t forget to wear protection on cloudy days as well as sunny. UVB rays may be partially blocked by the grayness, but UVA rays are not.
