The ABCs of Sun Protection
Most of us like to be out in the sun. That’s why sunscreen and other safety measures are key to protecting your skin from aging and cancer. The FDA recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Also look for broad spectrum on the label. That means both harmful ultraviolet A and B rays are blocked. Remember: SPF plus broad spectrum equal healthy fun in the sun. Visit www dot FDA dot Gov slash sunscreen (www.fda.gov/sunscreen) for more information. A message from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
