5. Slop on the Sunscreen Use sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or more that contain both UVA and UVB protection. Apply sunscreen 15-30 minutes before going outside, and reapply every 2 hours (more often when working, playing, or swimming).
2. Shade your Skin •Seek shade under trees, or create your own shade with a hat, shirt, or umbrella. •Wear clothing to cover your arms and legs. Make sure the fabric has a tight weave. Fabric that is wet or has a loose weave will allow more light to penetrate through to the skin. •Wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection.
