The sun's UV rays are responsible for those tans that everyone strives for during these warm months. "The color of the skin you were born with is the best color for you - it's the best shade you can be". The program is created to try to fight skin cancer - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that skin cancer is the most common cancer in the USA and also recommends people wear SPF 15 or higher - and is sponsored by the non-profit IMPACT Melanoma and skin cancer prevention company Bright Guard. Choosing the right sunscreen is very important. But you might need to adjust the amount depending on your child's body size. The most common parts of the body for skin cancer to develop are often places that people forget to apply sunscreen. Tell them if you have any allergic reactions and what other topical medications you are using to avoid any side effects. But many don't know exactly what SPF is or what the rating represents. To give you an idea, SFP 15 filters out approximately 93 per cent of all incoming UVB rays, and SPF 30 filters about 97 per cent of the UVB rays. Only "broad spectrum" sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB.

Avoid tanning beds. Ultraviolet light from the sun and tanning beds can cause skin cancer and wrinkling. On the way to the water's ultraviolet rays have time for a good "work" on your skin and may have suffered severe damage.

Minor League Baseball and the American Cancer Society have announced that they are collaborating on an initiative to promote sun safety measures.

When shopping for sunscreen, look for water-resistant, broad-spectrum coverage with an SPF of at least 15.

And another tip. When you wash hands, sunscreen is washed off. I do still see the need for liquid or cream sunscreens.

Not all lotions and sprays are created equal, though. Below is a list of doctor recommended brands, their applications, and some information about each.

Alba Botanica has a line of sprays and lotions that come in different scents and applications. If that's not possible, apply an ounce (a palm-full) of sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and UVA and UVB protection 20 minutes before going outside, then reapply every two hours.

For men with shaved or bald heads, we suggest Ultrasol Men Face Cream Gel by Dr. Fischer. In both Boston and Miami Beach, cities that have also provided free sunscreen to their citizens, corporations and non-profits have shouldered most if not all of the cost of the dispensers, according to Stringer's proposal a year ago. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that only 14 percent of men applied sunscreen when outside for more than an hour.
