Sunscreen can help protect the skin from sunburn and some skin cancers but only if used correctly.
-Use a sunscreen that says “broad-spectrum” on the label; that means it will screen out both UVB and UVA rays.
-Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 (up to SPF 50). An SPF of 15 or 30 should be fine for most people. More research studies are needed to test if sunscreen with more than SPF 50 offers any extra protection.
