Sun and Skincare Tips

In addition to the Personal Care products, with over 25 years of experience, we have  the technical expertise required to help you select the best product to meet your needs and even make a few gift suggestions that will make you popular with family and friends.  Here are a few tips that you should follow when using sunscreen on the job and while out having fun.   

  • Apply at least one ounce of sunscreen (enough to fill a shot glass) at least 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Also use a lip balm or lipstick that contains sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
  • Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. Make sure it is water resistant and has a SPF of 30 or higher. Other sunscreens may help keep you from getting sunburned, but they won’t protect against skin cancer.
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours.  Reapply every hour if you are swimming or sweating.
  • Be extra careful around water and sand. These surfaces reflect the damaging rays of the sun, which can increase your chance of getting a sunburn.
  • Keep babies younger than 6 months old completely covered and in the shade.
  • Limit the amount of time you’re in the sun between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. This is when the sun’s rays are the most intense. Practice the shadow rule: if your shadow is shorter than you, the sun’s rays are at their strongest, and you should find shade.
