34. 30 is the Magic Number

SPF 15 feels like a sound option to make, but you’d be surprised that that’s not going to do anything for you. Most doctors recommend at least SPF 30 or higher if you want to prevent sunburns from occurring.

This advice is because SPF 30 blocks half the amount of radiation as SPF 15, meaning that you’re less likely to get burned. You will have to reapply it every two hours or so to maintain the same level of protection, however, so take your sunblock with you if you’re away from home.

35. Taking Care of Your Skin

If you notice any dark spots on your skin that weren’t there before, it would be a good idea to head to a dermatologist. It could be a mutating mole or a small growth of skin cancer.

Don’t panic when you spot one; these are easy to take care of in the early stages before they develop into tumors. You can make an appointment to remove them; sometimes even through walk-ins, which means no recovery time on your part.
