How to choose and use sunscreen

For the longest time, sunscreen labels used terms like “sunblock” and “waterproof” that made you believe the products could block out the sun or stay on your skin no matter how wet and sweaty you got. But the truth is that no sunscreen can do either. That’s why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration now requires sunscreens to have labels with more useful information and fewer misleading terms. Instead of “sunblock,” look for a sunscreen with “broad spectrum.” In place of “waterproof” sunscreen, look for “water-resistant” on the label.

Choosing the right sunglasses

It’s hard to avoid the sun, but it is easy to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Sunglasses need not bear a designer label or cost hundreds of dollars to do their job properly. Before you invest in a new pair, make sure you understand the purpose of the glasses and the type of protection they provide.
