(This is not medical advice, just experience as a provincially licensed and cerified esthetician.)

Whether it’s sitting by a pool, or going on a warm vacation, you always bring the essentials: sunglasses, a great book and sun protection.
What number is on yours? 15? 25? 70? What do those numbers mean – and is a higher spf better?

Sunscreen protects your skin with the use of chemicals that absorb the sun’s rays. Oxybenzone is one type. 
 
Sunblock protects with a physical block – zinc oxide may be familiar to you. 
Most retail sun products have some combination of both. You may also want to add a wide brim hat, and large sunglasses as added sun protection.

UVA vs UVB: when it comes to these ultraviolet rays and skin, we can define their affects on the skin in terms of short term and long term. 

UVA is what causes our skin to immediately burn, and eventually can lead to premature aging, wrinkles and some skin cancers. 

UVB cause a delayed tanning affect but can cause blistering from burning. Skin cancer and premature sharing are caused by this ray.

Now, the numbers. You may be surprised to know that the difference in protection between SPF 30 and SPF 50. It is one percent. SPF 50 and 100? Again, one percent.
Essentially there isn’t much of a difference – usually it’s price. So what to do? There are so many brands, in so many price ranges!

In my opinion, a light skinned person should use a 25-40. Medium skin-10-25. If you are extremely pale or sensitive to the sun 50. As far as which brand, buy what you’re going to use!
Sprays, creams, foams and lotions are all available to suit your needs. Don’t forget that sun protection products do have an expiration date.
To prevent using an expired product, I toss my sunscreen out once a year- no matter how much I’ve used.

Now the most important lesson from this article – how to use sun protection! 
It’s extremely important to apply your product about 20 minutes before you go outside. The product needs time to absorb into your skin. 
Next, don’t forget the “hidden” areas- your ears, back and front of your neck, underarms, feet and toes. 
The final tip I will give you is to always reapply. Sun protection needs to be reapplied every 30-45 minutes and even more if you’re in water. 
That’s the trick to not getting a burn.
When in doubt regarding your skin, always consult with your doctor. Enjoy all that vitamin D!

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.
