National Sun Safety Awareness Week – Protect Your Skin!

This week is National Sun Safety Awareness Week and it is very important that we take care of our skin.

Please remember when purchasing sunscreen for your children and yourself, the important ingredient that you should look for is Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide!   I’ve been reading up on sunscreens and learned, “Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are two of the important ingredients in sunblock. Unlike the organic sun-blocking agents used in many sunscreens, these metal oxides do not degrade with exposure to sunlight.” reference,  Wikipedia.  Unprotected to skin can lead to the formation of skin cancer!

Our friends over at Sunny Sleeve offer some great information on how to protect your skin.  Also checkout Sun Safety Alliance for their tips of the day and to educate yourself and others.

Go out and have a great summer, but PLEASE always protect your skin! — Cute Beltz
