    According to the CDC, application of sunscreen while outdoors is a simple step to protect yourself from the harm of overexposure to sunlight's UVA and UVB rays.  A sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be applied at least every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.  Follow the directions on the suncreen bottle label.
