Harnessing the Power of Sunscreen – Your Essential Guide for Spring 2024

Sunscreen is not just a beach essential; it is a vital defense against premature aging for a good part of the year. You might think mild springs are safe, but the UV index even in the Northern parts of the US can be dangerous. New York City UV levels for example rise to 4 and 5 in March and by April they hit levels 6 to 7. UV index numbers range from Low 0-2, Moderate 3-5, High 6-7, to Very High and Extreme 8-11, with values of 3 or higher generally considered to be of moderate to high risk. It is important to start your sun protection routine as soon as your local UV index goes above 3!

Selecting the Right Shield: Prioritize Broad Spectrum

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) emphasizes the importance of broad-spectrum protection, covering both UVB and UVA rays. Skin aging (photo-aging) is attributed to UVA exposure, whereas burns are a result of UVB. The SPF in your sunscreen only relates to the UVB protection. Mineral sunscreens, containing Zinc and Titanium, provide reliable protection without harming coral reefs, although some products may leave a slight residue. On the other hand, chemical sunscreens with ingredients like Oxybenzone and Avobenzone offer effective SPF, but may pose environmental risks.

5 Sunscreen Essentials:

1. Prep Before You Step: Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going outdoors to ensure maximum absorption.

2. Mind the Gaps: Remember to apply sunscreen to often-overlooked areas like ears, scalp (if you have bald spots), eyelids and lips.

3. Reapply Regularly: Keep your sunscreen game strong by reapplying every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.

4. Cover Up: Use long sleeve tops, pants and hats to protect your skin from sun exposure.

5. Clouds Don't Stop UV Rays: Even on overcast days, UV rays can penetrate clouds, so make sunscreen a daily habit.
