Skin Care: Sunscreen - Health Channel


Skin Care: Sunscreen |

Dr. Debra Price, Dermatologist with Baptist Health South Florida, says the most important thing to look for is a sunscreen that has at least a SPF of 30, that is broad-spectrum, which means it protects against UVB and UVA rays, and that is water resistant, because there is no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen.

She also explains a water resistant sunscreen will be effective for 80 minutes on the skin, and after that time you have to reapply.
