When to Wear Sunscreen

When to Wear Sunscreen

Sunburn happens when you're exposed to a lot of UVB rays from the sun. It only occurs in the middle part of the day in the summer.

When the sun's angle is below 35 degrees, you don't have to worry about sunburn because the amount of UVB is insufficient.

A good sunscreen will also protect your skin from UVA rays, responsible for thickening and aging of the skin.

How Much Sunscreen to Use

Use as much as you can. Be aware that you are probably getting less protection than you think.

  • High SPF sunscreen helps to make up for what you are missing.
  • Protect your skin with sleeves, hats, and shade.

Sunscreen Sprays

Sprays work, but be aware:

  • You have to make sure you apply enough. Spray until there's a visible sheen, and then you're supposed to rub it in.
  • You probably don’t want to breathe it in or get it in your eyes.
  • Do not ever spray them near a fire.
