Eucerin send me an awesome bracelet that changed color when I wase exposed to UVA/UVB rays. I was amazed at how often it changed. While many of us remember to slather on the SPF when we’re soaking up rays on the beach, we forget that every day incidental sun exposure from activities such as talking walks, strolling through outdoor outlet malls and eating lunch outside also puts our skin at risk for sun damage, sun burn and even melanoma. It’s important to remember to apply sunscreen each morning as part of your daily skin care routine.

Eucerin’s Everyday Protection Face SPF 30 and Body SPF 15 Lotions are great options for everyday use. These products are lightweight and designed for sensitive skin to limit the risk of irritation.
Here are some tips to remember when selecting a sunscreen that is right for you:
o    Look for “broad-spectrum” sunscreens that protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
o    Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before heading outside and reapply every 2 hours if you are swimming, sweating or toweling off.
o    SPF’s over 50 don’t provide much more protection. When used properly, SPF 50 screens 98% of UVB and the increased of sunscreens with SPF 90 or 100 becomes minor.
o    Dermatologists recommend wearing a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. You are exposed to the sun’s UV rays every day, the moment you step outside.
