Plymouth Terrace Discusses the Importance of Sunscreen

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Michimich -- You should be worrying about sunscreen protection all year long – not just during the summer months. While it's important for everyone to wear sunscreen, it's especially important for older adults. Aging skin is more fragile, and sensitivity to sunlight can be a side effect of some medications prescribed to seniors.

Protect your skin from sunlight with these tips:

1.     Use SPF 30 or higher every day

2.     Reapply sunscreen frequently

3.     Layer sunscreen generously all over your exposed skin

4.     Protect against UVA & UVB rays

5.     Try a different kind of sunscreen

6.     Wear a wide-brimmed hat

7.     Wear clothing to cover your ankles and long sleeves
