With summer fast approaching, I thought I would share this article I found about sunscreen as some people are still unsure of its reliability. Also remember that even on a cloudy day those UV rays are still reaching your skin. Just like during the winter months we should still be applying it when you will be outdoors for an extended period of time eg. Skiing, snowshoeing ect…. Just because the UV ray level might be low does not mean you are still not taking a risk every time you expose yourself.

Last summer while at the park I overheard a lady telling her friend that she was glad she could find some shade to put her 3 month old baby under. Little did she realize that although her baby was somewhat protected from the UV rays they would still be affecting her skin especially skin as delicate as a 3 month old baby’s. Considering it was 90 degrees out that day and very breezy which helps carry the UV rays even further. The baby should definitely have had sunscreen on!!

For the few minutes it takes to put on, I would definitely advise using the product as it can save your life.

Have a safe and happy summer!
