With the soaring temperatures and the sunny days, parents and children have been spending a great deal of time outdoors including when the sun's rays are at their peak.  Recently, The Plain Dealer featured an article featuring some tips for sunscreen.  They included:

  • Make sure that your sunscreen includes both protection for UVA & UVB rays
  • Two key ingredients to look for are titanium and zinc oxides
  • Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before heading out and an additional 1-2 times for each hour you remain outside
  • Each time you apply, make sure it is about the amount to fill a shot-glass  
  • Have added protection by wearing hats and protective clothing
