Thanks to The Scout Guide Charleston for asking us to help write a feature article this month on the benefits of sunscreen.

We answer the most common questions you have about the differences between UVA and UVB as well as which SPF number is best.

 

Here are a few bonus tips on some sunscreen choices that you can trust:

Daily use
FaceMD Sunscreen Cream SPF 30
Elta MD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40

Outdoor
SkinMedica Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ with UV ProPlex
Coppertone Sport Spray SPF 30

Kids
Mustela High Protection Sun Lotion SPF 50
Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45+
