Test your skin protection IQ

Filed under: ,

How much do you know about protecting your skin? How often should you apply it? How much should you use to cover your whole body? What kind of rays does sunscreen protect against? UVA? UVB? Both? If these questions have left you scratching your head, check out this quiz from Fitsugar.

Here are some quick sunscreen facts:
  • When you don't use enough sunscreen, the sunscreen you did apply is not nearly as effective.
  • UVA Rays can pass through windows and contribute to aging of the skin. UVB rays cannot pass through windows and can cause skin cancer.
  • SPF 15 blocks out 93% of harmful rays. Impressive, huh?
