• How Sunscreen Can Help You Look Younger

    You know that sunscreen is important for preventing painful sunburns and life-threatening skin cancer, but you may not realize that wearing sunscreen every day can also have cosmetic benefits. Watch this video to find out how sunscreen can help keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful. 

    The UV rays in sunlight cause the collagen and elastin in the skin to break down more rapidly, resulting in skin with a lower elasticity that will begin to fold into lines and wrinkles. By wearing sunscreen every day—even when it is cloudy outside—you can help to keep your skin healthy and beautiful.

  • Preventing Sun-Related Skin Damage This Summer

    When it comes to practicing good skin care, your dermatologist will tell you that protecting yourself from sun damage is among the most important steps that you can take. It’s important to shield your skin against sun damage year-round, but it’s especially important in summer when you’re more likely to spend extended periods of time out in the sun. There are several things that you can do to protect your skin from sun-related damage this summer.

    Sunscreen should be a part of your everyday routine, especially in the summer when the sun is stronger and the days are longer. Select a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection and has an SPF of at least 30. You should also reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours, or more frequently if you’re swimming or sweating. Besides using sunscreen, coving as much of your skin as possible with clothing, wearing a hat and sunglasses, and staying in the shade when possible are excellent ways to prevent sun-related skin damage.
