Be sure to use a very high Sun Protection Factor (SPF 50+) after a chemical peel or laser treatment or if you are taking medication that makes your skin sensitive to the sun.
Avoid extensive sun exposure. Even sun protection products with very high Sun Protection Factors (SPFs) do not offer 100% protection.
Keep out of the intense midday sun. This is usually between 11am to 3pm, depending on your location.
Do not expose babies and small children to direct sunlight. Children should wear protective clothing and a very high SPF in the sun.
Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat.
Apply sun protection products generously and thoroughly before sun exposure.
Re-apply sunscreen frequently to maintain an adequate level of protection, especially after sweating, swimming or toweling.
