Enjoy Summer Without the Burn!

I discovered Sun Bum products while spending some time in Florida and absolutely loved the products.  In fact, I love them so much, that I just had to add Sun Bum to our store.

Sun Bum’s Original Sunscreen is a moisturizing sunscreen formula that will protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while enriching your skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.

Trust the Bum to protect you from the sun!

UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB rays and are primarily responsible for premature skin aging and wrinkling. UVA rays have also been shown to cause more skin damage at the cellular level. UVB rays damage the outer layers of the skin. They are the main cause of sunburn and play a key role in the development of skin cancer.  Without protection, UVA and UVB rays penetrate and damage your skin.  A Broad spectrum sunscreen protects your skin from the UVA and UVB rays.

SPF Ratings

Below is the approximate percentage of UVB rays blocked depending on SPF rating. The difference seems minimal, but a higher SPF helps if you are fair skinned or have a history of skin cancer. Remember, no sunscreen blocks 100% of UV rays.
SPF 15 = 93%
SPF 30 = 97%
SPF 50 = 98%
SPF 70 = 98.5%
SPF ratings are significantly decreased if you don’t apply enough. Most people only apply 1/3 of the sunscreen they need. Make sure you use enough and don’t neglect hard to reach and easily forgotten places like your ears, feet, and upper back.

Recommended Use = 3 Tablespoons

Typical Use = 1 Tablespoon

Things to remember  while we’re enjoying the sun:

• Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun to allow the maximum absorption and protection.
• Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours. Apply more frequently after swimming, sweating or toweling.
• To protect against UVA and UVB rays be sure to us a broad spectrum sunscreen.
• Use SPF 15 or higher to help reduced the risk of skin cancer, and don’t neglect sensitive areas such as your ears, nose, shoulders, chest, and neck.
• If you’re taking a swim or sweating, use a water resistant sunscreen to keep you safe longer.
• Even on cloudy days, 90% of UV rays can still get through and leave you fried.
• Reflection off snow and water can increase sun exposure by up to 50%
• UV levels increase 4% for every 300m in altitude
• We know it tough, but try to limit your time in the sun from 10am to 2 pm during the hot summer months.
• Whenever possible, cover up with clothing – including a broad brimmed hat and UV Blocking sunglasses.  Shade can reduce UV exposure by 50% or more.
• Keep newborns out of the sun.  Sunscreen should only be used on children over the age of 6 months.
