Your mother was right – always wear sunscreen. With skin cancer rates on the rise, putting on sunscreen should be a part of your everyday routine.
Use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, and put it on roughly 20-30 minutes before you head outside. Apply generously to your face, hands and body. And don’t forget other exposed areas like your ears and lips. Reapply sunscreen every three hours or more frequently if you are swimming, exercising or sweating.
Clouds overhead? Don’t skip sunscreen; you still need it. Our high altitude makes applying sunscreen daily pretty much mandatory.
