Science seeks ways to take sting out of sunburn
But more important, “Don’t get a sunburn,” Feldman stresses. The advice:
_Stay out of direct sun when it’s most intense, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
_When you are out, wear sun-protective clothing and seek shade such as beach umbrellas. Feldman likes to tell of the dermatologists’ convention in Hawaii where beachgoers wore long-sleeved swim cover-ups and big hats.
_Don’t forget the sunscreen, especially on the face, hands and arms that are exposed to sun just about every day.
Sunscreen isn’t a substitute for the first two tips, Feldman warns, because it doesn’t guarantee protection if you stay out too long, use too little or miss a spot.
Still, picking a sunscreen should get less confusing next summer when new government regulations kick in. Those rules will prohibit claims like “waterproof” _ you do need to reapply after swimming or sweating _ and will assure protection against both types of skin-damaging UV rays.
