How Sun Smart Are You?

From Sunrider International, Wednesday May 9th, 17:41 ·
Most of us know we need to apply sunscreen when spending long periods in the sun. We routinely slather it on when we’re at the beach, hiking, or lounging by the pool. We think we have it covered, right?

But did you know you can suffer from significant sun damage without even knowing it? Even driving to work can harm your skin because daily drive time in the car could prove problematic over time as unprotected sun exposure accumulates. Even indirect sunlight and sun shining through a car window (UVB rays are mostly blocked by glass, but UVA rays can penetrate) can pose skin cancer risks.

Every time you get a sunburn, you increase your chances of getting skin cancer, and any time you tan, you damage your skin, increasing your risk for skin cancer and accelerating your skin's aging process.

All of this underscores the importance of staying sun smart. Making sunscreens part of your everyday skin care simply makes good sense. Sunrider® sunscreens provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection in non-greasy, easy-to-apply formulations. Developed by Dr. Chen and made with the finest natural ingredients, you can be sure of their safety and effectiveness.
