Ask the Nurse

What should I look for in a sunscreen? What strength do I use and how often do I apply it?

You want to look for a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB and that contains meroxyl, which can be found in sunscreens such as Antheolios or Neutrogena. You also need to reapply more frequently if you are in the water, sweating or out in the sun for prolonged periods of time.
