SUN PROTECTION 101: Houston Dermatologist shares her picks for best sunscreens

2020 guide to sunscreens

HOUSTON – If you’re spending any time outdoors in this summer heat, it’s always important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

But what type of sunscreen should you use when there’s so many options available?

Dermatologist, Dr. Sherry Ingraham, breaks down her picks for the best SPF products to protect yourself and your family.

“If you’re going to the beach or to the pool with your kids, always start that first layer of the day with a cream or a lotion; that has a better coverage. And throughout the day, spray is your reapplication, because it’s so easy,” said Ingraham, who also recommends looking at the number.

“All sunscreens for adults or children should be 30 or higher, and according to new FDA recommendation it should not be above SPF 60 on the label. Above 60 it’s not going to hurt you, but it’s high enough, “said Ingraham, who shared great products and tips for optimum protection.
