Save Your Skin

Use sunscreen every day

(HealthDay) -- Summer's almost over. No more sunny days at the beach and no more sunscreen, right? Not so fast.

The University of Iowa department of dermatology says it's important you use sunscreen every day of the year, even on cloudy days. And don't bother with an SPF below 15. It's not strong enough to thwart ultraviolet rays.

Other tips to protect your skin include: wear a hat, use sunglasses that filter out UV rays, avoid tanning parlors and check the UV index each day and dress accordingly.
