SUN FACTS and Aloe Up

  • Aloe Up products have a 3 year shelf life from date of manufacture.

  • Those with fair skin & complexion should limit sun exposure during the middle of the day between 11am and 3pm, when the sun's rays are the strongest.

  • A  'Sun Protection Factor' (SPF) of 15 or higher is recommended for longer sunscreen protection.

  • Be sure to reapply sunscreen, especially after swimming, sweating or drying off.

  • Wear a hat with a broad-brim all around because it protects areas often exposed to the sun.

  • To protect your eyes from damage, wear sunglasses that filter UVA & UVB radiation.

  • Swimmers should  reapply sunscreen after an hour in the water. UV rays reflect off water and sand, increasing the intensity of UV radiation.

  • Skiers should apply high factor sunscreen of SPF30 or SPF50.  Sun rays reflecting off snow at altitude is intense and can burn unprotected skin rapidly.

  • Some medications, such as antibiotics, can increase your skins sensitivity to the sun. Ask your doctor of pharmacist for more information about the medications you are taking.

  • Children need extra protection from the sun. Sunburns before the age of 18 dramatically increases the risk of skin cancer. Encourage children to play in the shade, wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen regularly.

  • Sun exposure increases Vitamin D in the body! Vitamin D is necessary to absorb calcium and form healthy bones. Vitamin D is also known to aid protection against chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Too much sun exposure also raises the risk of skin cancer. Always apply a sunscreen according to your skin type.

  • For long hours of activity in the sun wear a high factor sunscreen whatever your skin type. This will help to condition the melanin in your skin to protect you.

  • Never let your skin burn!
