Most people understand the importance of using sunscreen to block the Sun’s harmful rays.  Extended exposure to UV rays has been shown to be a cause for many types of Skin Cancer.  According to this post from Real Advice Gal, more than 350 Americans are diagnosed with Skin Cancer every hour of every day, 90% of which may be caused by sun exposure.  This post answers any questions that anyone, especially parents, may have about the proper use and application of sunscreens for maximum protection.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

HOW TO APPLY SUNSCREEN
It wasn’t that long ago that I was little. Well, yes it was. There is something I remember from my teenage years that has stuck with me for a lifetime. I had a girlfriend who I hung out with all the time. We did everything together and whenever I saw her father he would shake my hand. In my hand, he would leave a gift. The gift was something that I didn’t understand the value or the worth at the time, but 24 years later I fully understand. You see in, my hand he would give me a tiny sample of sunscreen. He was, of course, a dermatologist. He told me to use it always and use it often. I never forgot that lesson.

If you fast forward to my life now, you would see on my bathroom counter sits Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face +Body Stick Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70. I use it on my face after a wash and tone my face. It glides on nicely, and I rub it in, and then I apply my make up in the areas I need it. You would think sunscreen doesn’t make much of a difference, but you would be wrong. I am originally from Florida and when I went to my high school reunion it was evident as to who used sunscreen regularly and who didn’t. I also try to wear a hat and sit in the sun.
