Helping to Keep Your Skin Healthy

Summer means warm weather and outdoor activities, like hiking, biking, swimming and relaxing on the beach. But before you and your loved ones head outside, make sure you protect your skin from the sun. 

Taking in the sun without any protection can lead to problems -- from dry skin and wrinkles to skin cancer.

Sunscreen and care recommendations
Sunscreen is an excellent way to protect your skin. But you must put it on correctly. Work from your face down to your feet. Remember your ears and neck. And have someone else get your back and shoulders. 

Also, if you go swimming, put on more every 1 to 2 hours. 

Skin type and recommended skin protection factor (SPF) 
Doctors recommend different levels of protection based on your skin type. Do you know what SPF sunscreen is best for your skin? Find out here.
