Columbus Sun Damage: Individualized Sunscreen Is Key
Suncreen: Before Columbus Skin Rejuvenation
If you have sun damage we can help you out with a variety of treatments.
But, we’d much rather see you prevent damage before it happens.
Don’t Ever Underestimate The Sun
Dr. Carol Clinton and Gail Hogan recently discussed the implications of not protecting your skin from the sun.
“We need sunscreen year-round,” said Clinton.
She pointed to the recent photo from The New England Journal of Medicine depicting a truck driver who illustrated what the sun can do even indoors.
“It’s amazing the kind of damage the sun can do,” Clinton said.
Not All Sun Protection Works for Everyone
You can shield UVA and UVB using a physical barrier, a chemical barrier or a combination of both.
“There are products that could make your skin break out if you have the potential for that,” Clinton said.
A chemical barrier will absorb the damaging rays while a physical barrier will bounce them off.
“If you’re having some problems, you can come in and we’ll give you some advice on how to use a sunscreen.” she said.
Hogan said, “Don’t stop using it, just find the right one!”
Part of An Every Day Routine
Sun protection needs to become habit for everyone, even in the winter and even if you spend most of your time indoors because the sun’s rays can reach though windows.
“Wash your skin and use a sunscreen daily,” Clinton said.
