Upgrade Your Sunscreen
Look for a product that protects against both UVB rays (which cause sunburn) and UVA rays (which affect the skin on a deeper level and can cause cancer). The SPF number applies only to UVB protection, so check the list of ingredients for a UVA-blocking agent like avobenzone. If you're using a product (or applying one to your kids' faces) that doesn't have UVA blockers, your skin may be getting damaged even if you're not burning.
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
