With the first day of Summer behind us, many seniors are heading outdoors to enjoy the warm weather. Protection from the sun is paramount during these ventures outside. Choosing the highest SPF lotion is the best protection to help ward off skin cancer. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a minimum SPF of 30. However, Consumer Reports has found that many of the main brand sunscreens are not testing at the SPF quoted on the bottle. Make sure you choose a brand you are familiar with and make sure you apply often as directed.
