Do Your Skin a Favor: Protect It in Summer

With the outdoor season in full swing across the Northern Hemisphere, everyone's thoughts should turn to sun protection. Staying out of the sun is the best way to avoid damage, but that’s not always practical. So here are some precautions to take when you go out:

Always wear sunscreen. Experts say that putting on sunscreen should be a normal part of your morning routine, like brushing your teeth. This is especially true if you work or spend time outdoors. An SPF of at least 15 will block 93 percent of UV rays. You want to filter out both UVA and UVB radiation.

•Stay indoors when the sun is high, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.. The sun’s UV rays are strongest during this time. If you can't avoid being outdoors, be sure you re-apply your SPF every two hours

•Wear protective clothing. A wide-brimmed hat (not a baseball cap), long sleeves and long pants
will filter the UV rays. Look for lightweight clothing that will be comfortable in the heat, but that is tightly woven enough that you can’t see through it in the light.

•Wear sunglasses. Specifically look for glasses that say they offer 99 to 100 percent UV protection.

If you have any questions or other concerns, you are welcome to make an appointment with our dermatologist Dr. Mee Yuen Leung.
