Help protect your skin this summer!

It’s summer, and if you’re like me, you burn…. every. year.

Sunburn happens to the best of us, and obviously, the answer is to wear sunscreen but it goes a bit deeper than that. Novant Health just released 6 of the best tips to help you protect your skin.

Tips To Avoid Sunburn:

  • Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposure

  • Reapply every 90 minutes to 2 hours

  • If you sweat or get in the water, you’ll have to reapply more frequently

  • Don’t forget your lips! Wear chapstick with SPF in it while out in the sun

  • Buy new sunscreen at the beginning of every new season. Sunscreen does have expiration dates!

  • Don’t forget your scalp! Wear hats; they can also help protect your face as well
