7 Things everyone should know about Sunscreen
1. Buy "Broad Spectrum" to block the UVA (Aging!) and the UVB (Burning!) Rays
2. Check expirations- most sunscreens are designed to maintain their strength for 3 years
3. Buy SPF 30 or more and reapply every 2 to 3 hours 
4. Don't forget your ears, lips, exposed areas of the scalp, and neck/decolletage area
5. Use your tools: umbrellas, swim shirts, broad brimmed hats
6. Manufacturers cannot claim "waterproof" anymore, only "water resistant" (40 minutes in water) or "very water resistant" (80 minutes in water) might as well spring for the 80 right!
7. Sunscreens using exclusively zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, or sunscreens made for infants and toddlers may cause less irritation to people with sensitive skin. By the way, sunscreen is not recommended for infants less than 6 months of age.
