How Long Does It Take To Get a Sunburn?

It really doesn’t take long to get a nasty sunburn, usually in as little as 15 minutes – or less in some cases. What you use for sun block can make a big difference.

Up until recently, sun block products could claim to be water proof or stay on all day long! That’s not true. Thank goodness products can’t misrepresent the truth today. However, do look for sun block products that cover a broad spectrum that protects against both, UVA & UVB rays. Remember any water resistant product lasts only an hour or so, at best!

Enjoy yourself and the kids in the sun this year but keep in mind that skin cancer can be deadly, so be very careful.
