Here in Texas, though, you’ll need protection for more than just your items out for transport. With this brutal summer sun, your skin requires quite a bit of protection, as well.


Sunscreen is the most effective way to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays that can cause damage to the skin, premature aging, and even cancer. But, as with the array of protection our couriers offer on your cargo, without proper use, you’re still not covered.


Here are some application tips for proper use of sunscreen:


  • Be choosy- You need a sunscreen that’s at least 30 SPF, is waterproof, and specifically says it’s broad spectrum.
  • It’s not just for the pool- Anytime you’re going to have prolonged exposure in the sun, you need protection. This includes working out outdoors. Choose a water resistant sunscreen and don’t forget the calves- the most common place for Melanoma in women specifically.
  • You’re probably not using enough- For full coverage, you’ll need a nickel-sized amount for your face and a golf ball size amount for your body.
  • Reapplication is necessary- Every two hours, you’ll need to reapply. After sweating or swimming you’ll need to reapply.
  • Don’t forget your part- Your scalp is susceptible to burns, as well. A light powder sunscreen works best here.
  • Store your sunscreen properly- Yeah, our couriers know a thing or two about storage. But you won’t store your sunscreen in a centrally located warehouse like the rest of your cargo. Your sunscreen should however be stored away from direct heat and sunlight. Put it in your cooler or under towels while you’re at the pool or beach.
  • Sunscreen alone isn’t enough- Give yourself added protection by wearing a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, and skin protecting clothing.
  • Limit your time in the sun- Between the hours of 10am and 2pm, try to seek shade. This is when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
