Nothing beats a round of golf on a hot, sunny day. Just don't let the sun beat you!

Before heading out on the course, it’s important to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. To defend yourself from both, the FDA recommends using a “broad spectrum” sunscreen. Luckily, Golf Town has you covered with a wide range of Sun Bum products that will keep you swinging all day long—without the sunburn. 

Sunscreen should be applied 15 minutes before sun exposure. Sun Bum - SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray is easy to use and ultra sheer. Simply spray the dry-touch formula on your skin prior to heading out on the course. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours and even more frequently if your game has you breaking a sweat.

A commonly forgotten part of sun protection is lip balm. Sun Bum’s smooth SPF 30 sunscreen lip balm is infused with aloe and vitamin E. Keep this in your golf bag for easy access throughout your round. Your lips will feel moisturized all day while deflecting UV radiation. 

A golf tan is good, but a golf sunburn can be quite painful! If you’ve neglected protecting yourself from the sun, Sun Bum has you covered. Ease the pain and calm your skin with Sun Bum - After Sun Cool Down Gel. The vitamin E-enriched soothing formula hydrates your skin, so you can get back out on the course without that nagging burning sensation. 

Keep in mind that up to 80% of solar UV radiation can penetrate through light clouds. So even when you don't think you need it, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Applying and reapplying sunscreen throughout the day can help reduce the risk of skin cancer as well as premature skin aging.
