When you’re buying sunscreen, there are a few important things to consider. It’s best to get a sunscreen that has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. You’ll also want to look at the sunscreen’s Sun Protection Factor. For the best protection from the hot sun, try to get a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30. A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 will block 97 percent of the sun’s harmful UVB rays. Head to the drugstore and take a look at both the name brand and store brand offerings. If the store brand sunscreens have an SPF of 30 and broad spectrum protection, pick up the generic variety. The generic brand will give you the same protection from the sun, and it will usually be much cheaper.
