Sunscreen Protects Better than a Beach Umbrella
A study released in 2017 showed that a sunscreen protects against sunburn better than a beach umbrella!
Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen
During 3.5 hours of sun exposure, 78% of people got a sunburn while sitting under a beach umbrella while only 25% did while using sunscreen. Reflected and indirect rays expose the skin to UV light even when in the shade.
Our Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. George recommends that you should seek the shade, and most importantly always wear sunscreen!
