Sunscreen Recommendations

Avera Dermatology recommends a broad spectrum sunscreen - one that protects from both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays - with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.

Whether you choose a cream, lotion, or gel, you should select a sunscreen you're comfortable with so that you will use it regularly. Two ingredients to look for in a sun block is either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
