THE CHEESE SHOULDN’T STAND ALONE

(CNN, EWG 5/11) With the new FDA guidelines on sunscreens, many agencies are advising you to remember that sunscreens alone cannot prevent skin cancer.

 

Don’t forget about staying in the shade, using protective clothing such as wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection, and trying to avoid sun at the peak hours of 10 am to 4 pm.

 

A recent analysis of random beach/sport sunscreens showed that only 5 out of 600 met the new FDA guidelines …AMAZING!!!!

 

Also, watch when using spray sunscreens- they don’t cover as completely as lotions and can cause you to inhale unhealthy chemicals.

Be especially watchful of this around young children.
