Sun Protection Factors

Ah, summer in the city. For many that still means sunburns in the city. That’s really so 1970s, though. Back then sunscreens were relatively new, and we didn’t know a whole lot about the sun and our skin. But we now have plenty of knowledge about what the sun is doing to our skin.  Thanks…  read more
