The Skin Sisters on WCCO Mid-Morning: Tips for Protecting Your Skin

We brought our best tips for protecting your skin to the WCCO Mid-Morning Show.  Check out the segment below for 5 Sun Protection tips to keep in mind during Skin Cancer Awareness month.

The Skin Sisters tips:

  1. Use a sunscreen with Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide.
  2. Remember to reapply every 2 hours – sooner if you’re sweating or swimming!  Brush-on SPF if a great tool for reapplying without messy creams.
  3. UV light easily penetrates glass and can reach your skin through the windows in your car or office. 3M makes a great film that instantly gives your window an SPF 1000!  It’s paper thin (as thin as a post-it note!) and practically invisible. Find more information here: 3M Windowfilm.
  4. Sun protective clothing can be fashionable AND functional!  Wearing clothing with SPF (commonly referred to as UPF in clothing) is an easy way to protect your skin.
  5. Find products that you’re using anyhow, and choose a version with SPF.  For example, an eye cream with SPF or a lip balm with SPF.

We’ll share more information on these tips during the month of May!
