Roll-Off Dumpster Direct has the pleasure of delivering dumpsters to several CVS Pharmacies along the East Coast.

In May of this year, the retail pharmacy giant announced that their stores will no longer carry sunscreens with an SPF lower than 15.

Five Tips for Protecting Your Skin This Summer

Using SPF 15 or higher sunscreen is one of many methods the FDA recommends for decreasing risk of skin cancer and other sun-related skin damage. We thought it was fitting to provide 5 more tips for skin protection.

  1. Make Sure Your Sunscreen is Broad Spectrum: There are two types of sun rays, both of which can cause skin cancer and lasting skin damage. Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays have longer waves and can cause skin aging; ultraviolet B (UVB) rays have shorter waves and cause sunburn. Unless your sunscreen says it’s broad spectrum, it likely only offers UVB protection. 
  2. Take Other Measures to Protect Your Skin: Sunscreen is only one step. The FDA also recommends seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, wearing a hat with a 3 inch or wider brim, and wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes. 
  3. Reapply Every 2 Hours: You need to reapply sunscreen every two hours, and more often if you’ve been sweating or swimming. Companies are no longer allowed to make claims that they’re product is waterproof, but some will say they are water resistant up to 40 or 80 minutes. 
  4. Everyone Older Than 6 Months Needs Sunscreen: No matter your skin tone, familial history, race, or ethnicity, you are susceptible to sun damage. The one exception to this rule is that babies younger than 6 months should not wear sunscreen, as their skin is sensitive to the ingredients in sunscreen. However, babies’ skin is incredibly sensitive to the sun, so it’s important that they are in the shade and wear protective clothing when outside. 
  5. Apply Correctly: The average-sized person needs to apply 1 oz of sunscreen — enough to fill a shot glass. If you are larger or smaller, adjust the amount as needed so that all of your skin that isn’t covered by clothing is generously coated.

We hope all our clients have a fun summer and keep their skin safe!
