The sun is at its strongest between the hours 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This is when sun protection should be strongly advised. When buying a sunscreen or block look for:
Sunscreen/block should be applied about 15 to 30 minutes before going outside and reapplied every two hours, even on a cloudy day. Even if your lotion is waterproof, sunscreen/block should be reapplied after swimming and physical activity where excessive sweating has occurred. Lotion should be applied to any area of the body that will be exposed to the sun. Don't forget your lips, ears and behind the neck. Have someone help you with the hard-to-reach spots like the middle of your back.
