At least 3x in this time but not every day? Why Is Sun Protection Important? Too much unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage (try the Sunface app!), eye damage, immune system suppression, and skin cancer. Even people in their twenties can develop skin cancer. There is a face-aging mobile app called ‘Sunface’.  It allows the user to take a selfie and shows what they might look like in five, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years, based on three levels of exposure the user selects: sun protection, no sun protection, and weekly tanning. Use Sunscreen.

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that all kids — regardless of their skin tone — wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.  Make sure it’s broad-spectrum (protects from both UVA & UVB rays) and, if you are in or near water, is labeled water-resistant. Apply a generous amount and re-apply often. 

Avoid the Strongest Rays of the Day . Try to stay in the shade when the sun is at its strongest (usually from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)  Most sun damage happens from exposure during day-to-day activities, not from being at the beach. Cover Up. One of the best ways to protect skin is to cover up. To make sure clothes offer enough protection, put your hand inside garments to make sure you can’t see it through them. Wear Sunglasses. Sun exposure damages the eyes as well as the skin. Even 1 day in the sun can lead to a burned cornea (the outer clear membrane layer of the eye). Sun exposure over time can cause cataracts (clouding of the eye lens, which leads to blurred vision) later in life. The best way to protect eyes is to wear sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection.
