7. Find out which SPF works for you.
Use sunscreen, especially when you are laying pool side, spending the day at the beach, or taking a midday run. You can determine the SPF number needed with your dermatologist because it depends on your skin type. The more delicate your skin, the more protection you may need and the higher the SPF number. Don’t get the completely wrong idea. The sun can be good for you. It helps our bodies create Vitamin D. However, the erosion to the O-ZONE layer has caused more exposure and damage than is safe. Sometimes, this damage results in skin cancer. Sunscreen can help limit the amount of exposure on the bright sunny days when you want to enjoy the weather and chill outside.
