Health Tip: Use Sunscreen Year-Round

(HealthDay News) - While you may remember to use sunscreen before you head to the beach during the summer heat, your skin should be protected any time you are in the sun -- even during winter.

Here are suggestions for how and when to use sunscreen, courtesy of The Skin Cancer Foundation:
  • Children aged 6 months or older should always wear sunscreen when they are outdoors.
  • Children younger than 6 months should not be exposed to the sun whenever possible.
  • People who work or sit near windows for long periods should wear sunscreen. Harmful UV rays do pass through windows.
  • Wear sunscreen year-round, even on cloudy days, whenever you'll be outside.
  • Use sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or higher. Make sure the product offers broad-spectrum protection.
