Prevent sunburn with a plan from DrSmartphoneMD!
Tampa Florida (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
In preparation for the long and hazy days of summer, the team from DrSmartphoneMD launched an initiative to raise awareness regarding methods by which to prevent sunburn.
The informational article series launched with precautions that need to be taken in order to ensure members of the DrSmartphoneMD family are not among the 3.5 million skin cancer cases diagnosed annually. The team explained that more than ninety percent of all skin cancers are associated with unprotected exposure to sunlight.
DrSmartphoneMD team members explained that a series of their tips came directly from the Skin Cancer Foundation, and could be used as a guide to prevent sunburn.
The team from DrSmartphoneMD explained that if a person is planning a day at the beach, they will want to choose a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or more in order to prevent sunburn. Following the suggested FDA guidelines, any water-resistant product must maintain its SPF after more than thirty minutes of water immersion. To ensure a person gets the full SPF of a sunscreen, apply one ounce of sunscreen thirty minutes before sun exposure. Applying sunscreen thirty minutes before sun exposure will allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin, and provide you a better chance to prevent sunburn.
The DrSmartphoneMD team explained that beach goers should bring along extra sunscreen to the beach because they will want to reapply your protective SPF layer every two hours. If a half day is planned at the beach, a person will want to put on SPF 30 sunscreen at least two times to prevent sunburn.
