Take care of your skin and protect against the sun's harmful rays with sunscreens and other sun care products from Walmart.
Ultraviolet (UV) rays emitted by the sun carry many risks. Longer-wavelength UVA rays contribute to skin aging and wrinkling, while shorter-wavelength UVB rays are primarily responsible for sunburn. Both UVA and UVB rays can contribute to the development of skin cancers. For the best skin protection, look for broad-spectrum sunscreens, which protect against both UVA and UVB.
Most sunscreens are labeled with a sun protection Factor (SPF). SPF is a measure of how long it will take UVB rays to redden skin with the sunscreen as compared to the time it would take without the sunscreen. (There is currently no standard measure of protection from UVA.) Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, and choose one with a higher SPF if you have fair skin or spend a lot of time outdoors.
Water-resistant sunscreen is designed to stay on through sweating and light water exposure, while waterproof sunscreen is ideal if you'll be swimming. If you do get a sunburn, after-sun gels and lotions made with aloe vera and other cooling ingredients can help soothe and heal your skin. You'll also find sunless self-tanners to give you a golden glow without the risks of sun exposure.
