Sunscreens. Use and misuse.
Dermatol Clin. 1998 Apr; 16(2):219-26.DC

Abstract

Although sunscreens are widely available and in common use, surveys show that an average of only half of the people on a beach on a given day wear sunscreens. Many people go to the beach to get or maintain a suntan, but many people also leave their skin unprotected. This article discusses the proper use of sunscreens, common misunderstandings, and how unprotected long-term exposure to the sun can effect your skin.
