Sun Damage Prevention Tips

Exposure to the sun is inevitable. But you can take precautions and protect you and your loved ones from sun damage. Protect your skin with natural sunscreens from Coola and follow these tips.

Generously apply a water-resistant sunscreen with minimum SPF 15 and UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection to any parts of your body that are exposed to the sun each day. Reapply every 2 hours if you're in direct sun. A sufficient amount for your entire body is 1 ounce, or about 2 tablespoons.

Don't forget those kissable lips, be sure to use a lip balm that's SPF 15 or higher.

Cover up! Use a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, long sleeved shirt or pants. Don't be shy, fashion comes second here.

Seek shade between 10AM and 4PM, when the sun's burning rays are strongest. And don't worry, no one will think you're a wimp.

Use extra caution near the water, sand and snow as they can reflect and strengthen the sun's rays. Can you say double ouch?

You may claim the Vitamin D defense when sunbathing. But you can still get Vitamin D safely through diet and supplements without putting your skin at risk.

Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should only be used on babies over the age of 6 months.

Examine your skin from head to toe every month and see your physician annually for a professional skin exam. Early detection is best.
