Visiting the Beach - Helpful Tips

It's natural to enjoy the beach! We encourage you to be safe by following these sun-safety tips to help prevent serious skin damage—and possibly skin cancer—later!
  • Keep Hydrated
  • Hydrogen Infused Water has shown to support skin recovery from UV exposure.
  • Keep in mind the sun is strongest between 10 am and 4 pm.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Remember that UV rays bounce off sand and water.
  • Keep very young children (6 months or less) out of the sun.
  • Sunscreens need to be applied liberally and evenly over all exposed areas.
  • Apply a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher whenever you're outdoors. To achieve adequate UV protection you should use products that provide broad spectrum protection, which means protection against both UVB and UVA rays. For broad spectrum protection, look for products that provide an SPF of at least 15 and contain ingredients like Avobenzone (Parsol 1789) or zinc oxide.
  • For children, it is recommended to use sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher.
  • Apply sunscreen before going outdoors and reapply often, especially after swimming.
  • Provide complete sunscreen coverage for your skin (including neck, ears and lips!).
  • For people with thin or thinning hair, apply sunscreen to the scalp as well.
