While you may want to spend as much time as possible this summer soaking up the sun, you’ll want to protect your skin from dangerous ultraviolet rays. Ultraviolet (UVA) rays have been shown to cause skin damage and even skin cancer.
According to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Gregg Guilfoyle, D.O. the best way to prevent sun damage is to wear sunscreen. But, he admits that finding the right one isn’t always easy.
Check out some of Dr. Guilfoyle’s tips below to make sure your skin is protected this summer.
In addition to sunscreen, Dr. Guilfoyle suggests some alternative ways to protect your skin like wearing a hat, staying out of the sun during peak hours between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and making sure the rest of your body is covered in clothing.
