SPF Protection this Fourth of July

SPF Protection this Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is coming up, and that means outdoor barbecues, beach days, and other outdoor activities. But in order to keep these events fun, it is important to protect your skin. SPF Protection is important this Fourth of July and all year long in Florida! Those who are planning to go to the beach should be careful because water reflects up to 10 percent of the sun's rays, sand about 15 percent, and seafoam about 25 percent.

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher daily. For extended outdoor activity, use a water resistant, broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Guess what though?! Anthony's Resort Wear and IBkul have the cutest assortments of UPF sun protection sundresses and tops! Take a look:
