Many of us roll our eyes when we hear the statement “wear sunscreen!”, since it reminds us of our mothers caring for us during our younger more-rebellious years. But all jokes aside there’s science to back up this claim.

what we do

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) launches a campaign on Skin Cancer Awareness Month each May where experts share the science behind sun damage. “Research suggests that daily use of sunscreen could decrease the incidence of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer,” says board-certified dermatologist Henry W. Lim, MD, FAAD, chair emeritus of the department of dermatology at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI. “However, it’s important to use sunscreen in conjunction with seeking shade and wearing protective clothing—including a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses—to protect you from sunburn, skin cancer and early skin aging, such as wrinkles and age spots.”

So now we’re sold on the idea of wearing sunscreen, among all the other suggestions. But how do we make the right choice? There are so many products out there it can be very confusing!

For starters, the AAD recommends to should look out for certain indicatives like:

  • Broad-spectrum: which means it protects from both kinds of carcinogenic ultraviolet rays (UVA & UVB).
  • SPF 30 or higher: numbers are an indication of how much protection they provide. Dermatologists suggest not going below 30 which is able to block 97% of the burning rays. If you choose a higher number you’ll be a tad more protected. But bear in mind there’s no such thing as 100% protection.
  • Water resistant:Specially when we lounge poolside for an extended period of time it’s important to take note of how long it can be water resistant. Whether 40 or 80 mins, it’s key to reapply as there’s exposure to water and/or sweat.
