Fun in the Sun… Keep Your Skin Safe!

Spring is here!  The snow is melting and the days are getting longer.  It’s almost summer, which means it’s time to get out and exercise on your Mobo Cruiser!

It is always good to remember to wear plenty of sunscreen when out exercising in the sun.

There are several varieties of sunscreens available to block out the harmful UVA and UVB rays that can damage skin, age it prematurely, and increase risk of skin cancer.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most sunscreens with an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 30 or higher do an excellent job of protecting.  It is important to remember that no sunscreen, regardless of the SPF, should be expected to stay effective for longer than 2 hours without reapplying.  So be sure to reapply regularly and also remember to apply 30 minutes PRIOR to sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully adhere to the skin.  If swimming or playing sports, be sure to use water resistant sunscreen.

Check the label to ensure the sunscreen is SPF 30 or higher, check the ingredients to make sure provides a broad spectrum of protection, reapply regularly, and if playing sports or swimming, use water resistant sunscreen. 

So…apply your sunscreen,  get outside, get healthy, get fit, have fun…and Go Mobo!
