Sunscreen. Don’t leave home without it. In fact, wear it every day regardless of whether it’s summer or not.
As the days grow longer and the air warmer, be sure your skin is well protected. May is skin cancer awareness month so Dr. Guarino wants remind all of his patients that sun damage is the leading cause of wrinkles and fine lines, and it causes skin cancer. It is important to protect your skin for your health and well-being. Extended sun exposure is a known health risk.
Protect Your Skin
There are many ways to enjoy the sun while keeping your skin protected. Dr. Guarino recommends wearing sunscreen on exposed skin every day of the year. Many moisturizers contain sunscreen and can help keep your skin from becoming damaged. If you are going to be spending an extended amount of time in the sun during the warmer months be sure to use a higher SPF sunscreen for maximum protection. Wearing a large brimmed hat while outdoors can help keep the sun off of your sensitive facial skin that is most susceptible to sun damage.
