More than Skin Deep
Time isn’t the only thing that ages and changes your skin. The sun is a major culprit when it comes to fine lines, wrinkles and altered pigmentation. “A person should look for an SPF of at least 30 and it should say broad spectrum, which means that it covers UVA, as well as UVB radiation,” says dermatologist Cheryl Rosen, national director of the Canadian Dermatology Association’s sun awareness program. “They can both damage DNA and they can both cause skin cancer.” The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends reapplying sunscreen every two hours, which is especially important during long periods of sun exposure. On how to prevent sunspots, Dr. Rosen suggests playing it safe. “Wear a hat, seek shade, and play your tennis game at nine in the morning instead of noon.”

*The Canadian Dermatology Association provides a statement of recognition to sunscreen products that are reviewed and found to meet the necessary criteria established by the CDA. Products recognized by the CDA can be found at
