Factoid: Sunscreen

Acworth Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends wearing an SPF of 15 or higher for maximum protection. Look for a product that states, “UVA/UVB,” protection or has “broad spectrum” on the label as it is important to protect against both spectrums.If looking for a sunscreen to use in the water, look for one that says “waterproof” or “water resistant.” Waterproof should provide 80 minutes of protection and water resistant should provide 40 minutes of protection.
