SUN PROTECTION:

  • Ultraviolet radiation of the sun will burn you faster higher elevations or in tropical, snow and water environments. Wear protective hats and other coverings when in the sun. While a natural suntan which has been obtained slowly helps protect you from sunburn, the tan you get from a bottle doesn't.
  • When you buy a commercial sunscreen product look for a SPF (sun protection factor) rating on the package. The SPF is a multiple of protection you get. For example "2" you can handle double the usual exposure with out burning.
  • SPF 2 to 4 = Minimal protection for people who rarely burn and tan easily and deeply.
  • SPF 4 to 6 = Moderate protection for people who tan well with minimal burn.
  • SPF 6 to 8 = Extra protection for people who burn moderately and tan gradually.
  • SPF 8 to 15 = Maximum protection from sun burning for people who always burn easily and tan minimally.
  • RECOMMENDED - SPF 15 or greater = Ultra protection from sunburn, offers the most protection which permits no sun tanning for people who burn easily and never tan.
