Slather on sunscreen

On both sunny and cloudy days use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or greater that protects against UVA and UVB rays. Be sure to apply enough sunscreen -- about one ounce per sitting for a young adult. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. Use extra caution near water and sand as they reflect UV rays and may result in sunburn more quickly.
