Summer is all about fun in the sun! These chemicals can be risky, causing allergies and tissue damage. Despite a thicker appearance, the affected skin is weaker and will bruise more easily. Educating young people about the risks involved with prolonged sun exposure has never been more urgent.

For more information on skin cancer prevention or for questions, visit skincancer.org or call Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital at 530-886-6712. But all skin types should take precautions.

So more is better, right?

Be especially careful from 10 a.m.to 3 p.m. when the sun is the most direct and intense. Wear clothing made of a protective fabric with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 15-50+.

Check the UV index daily. Zinc oxide absorbs UVA rays and is reflective of the sun's rays and does not clog the skin's pores.

UVA. Almost 95% of the long wavelength ultraviolet radiation that reaches the earth's surface is UVA. Some UV rays can even penetrate fog and clouds, so don't underestimate overcast days. Plus, the sun didn't seem to cause burns on anyone, including Cannon, who wasn't wearing sunscreen.

While spray cans may not have warnings on them, Consumer Reports recommends the sprays not be used on kids. Since copious amounts of sunscreen are supposed to be applied directly to the skin, this chemical could be absorbed into the skin and accumulate in the bloodstream. She recommends sticking to products between SPF 30 and 50.

Sonya Lunder, a senior analyst with the environmental advocacy group and lead scientist of the 2017 Sunscreens Guide, said of the findings, "Sunscreens are really mismarketed, and as a result, people who depend on them think they are far more powerful than they really are".

Using sunscreens with lower SPFs can protect you from burns; however, your skin can still be damaged even if you don't burn. Don't forget to protect ears, noses, lips and the tops of feet.

Apply sunscreen generously, smoothing it on instead of rubbing it in. So you can see how you would go through a whole bottle if you're out all day. There are also a wide variety of organic and natural sunscreens on the market that omit chemicals causing concern, some of which will contain zinc oxide, shea butter and red raspberry seed oil. It is for this reason that she supports the American Academy of Dermatology's recommendation to choose a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 (which would block 97% of UVB rays) and suggests one reapply it every few hours. Very water-resistant sunblocks maintain their SPF level for 80 minutes.
