Sun Care Tips From Coppertone

Photobucket

We spend a good bit of time outdoors almost every day.  In Florida the sun is shining bright and even when behind the clouds it is easy to get burnt.  I am a huge believer in taking care of your skin and using sun block.  I cringe when I see a small child who can't put it on themselves burnt to a crisp.  It only takes a few seconds to apply.  Specially with all of the easy helpful Coppertone products.  We love the Coppertone foaming lotion and the sprays here at the Zoo. 

Sun Care Tips: Smart Sunscreen Use

  • Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you are exposed to the sun.
  • Use it liberally and apply it evenly over all exposed skin to ensure complete coverage. Reapply as directed.
  • It's easy to overlook spots like the ears, neck, and shoulders, but they need sunscreen too. Remember to grab a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses and to seek shade when the sun is most intense.
  • SPF tells you the level of protection a sunscreen provides from sunburn. Use sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF 15 or higher whenever you'll be outdoors.
  • Apply another coat of sunscreen as needed, at least every 2 hours- and be sure to reapply after swimming, sweating, vigorous activity or toweling off.
  • Use water resistant sunscreens with broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher, and look for products that are quick and easy to apply to squirmy kids. (Keep babies under six months of age out of the sun and consult a doctor before applying sunscreen.)
