Sun Safety Q&A
As you and your family spend more time outdoors, it's more important than ever to shield skin from damaging UV rays. Here's some expert skincare advice for keeping your skin happy and healthy in the sun.
Q. In addition to a high SPF, what should I be looking for in a sunscreen?
A. Look for broad spectrum protection. This means that the product blocks UVA and UVB rays. An important bonus is antioxidants because they can help prevent free radical damage to the skin. Antioxidants can come in the form of vitamins such as C and E, as well as soy.
Q. When are the best and worst times to be in the sun?
A. The sun is strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Between these hours, try to stay in the shade as much as you can and wear protective clothing.
Q. What's the difference between UVA and UVB?
A. UVA and UVB are the 2 main types of UV rays reaching us from the sun. UVA rays cause photodamage to the deeper layers of the skin. UVA rays can cause some skin cancers and are responsible for premature signs of aging like dark spots and wrinkling. UVB rays can cause sunburn, resulting in redness and blistering. UVB rays are also responsible for most skin cancer, including melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer.
Q. What does SPF mean?
A. SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a measure of a sunscreen's ability to prevent UVB rays from damaging the skin. Sunscreen increases the amount of time you are protected from sunburn. For example, if you would normally sunburn after 5 minutes, a properly applied SPF 30 sunscreen will protect you from getting sunburned 30 times longer, or about 150 minutes.
Q. When do I need to put on sunscreen?
A. Remember that every exposure to the sun is damaging to the skin. It's important to limit your sun exposure no matter what the season or time of day. Sun safety should be a priority all year round. Make it part of your daily skin care routine.
Q. How much sunscreen should I put on?
A. Make sure to apply your sunscreen liberally, including frequently missed areas such as your lips, ears, and hands. On average, an adult needs about 1 ounce of sunscreen for their entire body per application.
Q. At what age should my child start wearing sunscreen?
A. Pediatricians and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants 6 months and older wear sunscreens with a minimum of SPF 15. They recommend all ages wear protective clothing and get limited sun exposure. Protecting your child's skin is crucial because infants and young children have thinner, more sensitive skin. Sun damage accumulates over a lifetime so teach your children the importance of sun safety early and give them a head start to a lifetime of healthy skin.
Apply generously and evenly before sun exposure. Reapply as needed or after towel drying, swimming, sweating or perspiring. Children under 6 months of age; ask a doctor.
For external use only. When using this product, keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove. Stop use and ask a doctor if rash or irritation develops and lasts. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

The unique story of AVEENO® began back in 1945, with Albert and Sidney Musher and the introduction of Soothing Bath Treatment. The Musher brothers were driven by a profound curiosity about how things work and how substances interact and a belief that centuries-old remedies hold the promise for human wellness. In conjunction with the Mayo Clinic, the Musher brothers’ experimentation with raw cereals led to the discovery of a natural bath additive containing 100% colloidal oatmeal (“colloidal” means milled to an ultra-fine powder), known for its natural ability to hold in moisture and relieve dry, irritated skin. And so was the birth of Soothing Bath Treatment and the AVEENO® brand. In fact, the Mayo Clinic was the Brand’s first customer.
Throughout the years, AVEENO® has continued this story of discovery and passion for unlocking the power of nature through scientific advances to benefit humankind. AVEENO®, the leader in ACTIVE NATURALS®, continues to develop breakthrough product formulations with new and existing natural ingredients, many that are clinically proven to deliver real skin care benefits leaving you with healthier-looking, beautiful skin. No wonder AVEENO® has been endorsed and recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians for over 60 years and is the brand trusted most by dermatologists for the efficacy and safety of its natural ingredients.
