Summer Learning: Understanding Sunscreen
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Summer is here, and it is time for fun in the sun. One important part of enjoying summer days is protecting your skin, but labels on sunscreen can be confusing.

2     The SPF rating can be found on sunscreens, lotions, and cosmetics. SPF stands for sun protection factor.

Products with a higher SPF offer more protection than products with lower SPF numbers.
