Health Tip: Protect Your Skin

(HealthDay News) -- To help keep your skin looking its best, the Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions:

  • Avoid exposure to the sun during peak hours, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., even on cloudy days.

  • Protect your skin with a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Reapply the product about every two hours.

  • Wear long-sleeved, lightweight clothing, a hat with a wide brim and UV-blocking sunglasses.

  • Don't use tanning beds or tan in the sun.

  • Have any changes in your skin evaluated by a doctor.
