Apply sunscreen on a daily basis. Use products with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 and apply it generously at least 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours if you’re in the sun for prolonged periods of time and more often if you’re swimming or perspiring.
Wear protective clothing and accessories such as long-sleeved shirts, pants, a wide brimmed hat or visor, and sunglasses with UV protection.
Avoid direct sunlight during peak hours when the sun’s rays are most intense, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Plan outdoor activities outside this time.
Use sunless tanning products to achieve the look of sunkissed skin.
NEVER use tanning beds because they emit the same UV rays that come from the sun.
