Using ZO’s Sunscreen for Healthier Skin
While sun exposure is necessary and healthy for your body – it helps maintain healthy levels of vitamin D in the body –spending too much time in the sun is not beneficial for you. On average, your skin can tolerate around 30 minutes of unprotected sun exposure. Anything beyond that can be damaging to your skin, increasing chances of getting a sun burn or even developing skin cancer.
If you find yourself spending time in the sun for long periods of time, always make use of sunscreen. When used on a daily basis, you can easily improve the health of your skin and prevent sun damage.
The following are a few ZO Skin Health products you can make use of this summer:

Notes for Application
Make sure to apply your sunscreen at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Remember to re-apply for sunscreen after 2 to 4 hours to ensure maximum sun protection. Always consult a doctor first before using sunscreen on children under 6 months to avoid any complications. Sun sprays should always be used in a well-ventilated area.
