The new world of body skincare: FDA revamps sunscreen labels

What you didn't know about sunscreen may worry you now that the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is cracking down on some lax sunscreen regulations. But worry not - the road is paved for a healthier future.

According to Allure.com, the world should see new regulations go into effect next summer to help us make more informed decisions when it comes to sun safety. Sunscreen companies will now have a higher burden of proof when advertising their SPF factors, as many claim to carry a high level of protection without providing a full-spectrum range of UVA/UVB protection. Plus, you won't see the words "waterproof" anymore, which tends to give people a false sense of security - as do SPF products over 50.

Until these labels go into effect, make sure you're following these guidelines as a matter of course. Use broad-spectrum sunscreen and reapply every couple of hours, and do use a self-tanner whenever possible.
