Encouraging photo-protection is the leading preventative health strategy used by physicians involved in skin care (dermatologists, plastic surgeons, etc). Although sun avoidance is becoming increasingly more desirable, outdoor occupations and lifestyles make total avoidance impossible for many individuals. Limiting sun exposure, wearing protective clothing and using sunscreen regularly may reduce the risks of skin damage, some types of skin cancer and other harmful effects due to sun exposure.
The majority of today’s skin problems occur due to sun exposure. Heat exhaustion and heatstroke can often occur when sweat glands fail to function properly. Excessive exposure to the sun can cause sunburn, dry and peeling skin. By using proper skincare products and ideas, you can enjoy the summer while having youthful looking skin for years to come.
