Some Great Summer Safety Tips to Protect Your Skin

Over the past three decades, more people have been diagnosed with skin cancer than all other mom-applying-sunsreencancers combined. Today, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of his or her lifetime. This is an alarming fact, considering what little we actually know about sun safety and how our protection from the sun is inherently flawed. Here are some important sun safety tips about what you can do to protect your skin and even safe your life.

As consumers, we trust sunscreen products far too easily, doing little to assess what the numbers after the “SPF” sign mean or caring to look at the ingredients list at the back of the package. The math isn’t adding up in the way you might think, and the chemicals used to make sunscreen aren’t exactly the purest of the bunch.

Winter Skin Tips

Cold air, wind and indoor heat are only three of the reasons your skin suffers in the winter. These Winter Skin Tips Dermatologyconditions draw the moisture out of your skin, leaving it dull, dry, itchy and irritated. Additionally, certain skin conditions including dermatitis (eczema), psoriasis, and “winter itch” can develop or become aggravated in the winter. The following skin care tips can help to protect your skin this winter.

  • Warm, not hot water. Hot water in the shower or bath strips your body of its natural oil barrier. You need that barrier to help trap moisture and keep your skin smooth and soft. Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5 or 10 minutes.
  • Cleanse gently. Wash with a soapless cleanser when you shower. Gentle soaps, cleansing milks and mild foaming cleansers that are free of fragrance are a great option. Blot your skin dry.
  • Moisturize more. Moisturizer traps water in our skin. To trap this moisture, you need to apply a moisturizer within a few minutes of drying off after showering. A moisturizer that worked great in the summer may not work as well in the winter. Creams and ointments may be more effective than lotions.
  • Shave smarter. Shaving strips natural oils from your skin and can irritate dry skin. According to the American Academy of Dermatology the best time to shave is after you shower. Hairs are more pliable and softer, making shaving easier.

Dedicated to your skin

  • Don’t forget your lips! The skin on the lips lack oil glands therefore they tend to get dry and cracked easily. Take special care to keep lips nourished and moisturized with a good quality lip lotion or balm.
  • Protect your eyes. The sun’s rays penetrate even when it is cloudy, snowing or overcast. A good pair of sunglasses will protect both the skin around the eyes and the eye itself. Choose sunglasses that protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Cover up. Sunscreen is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer as the sun’s reflective powers (off snow and sand) are great year round. Sun damage is one of the main causes behind dry skin, wrinkles, and roughness. You can help prevent that damage by wearing broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen year-round and dressing right.

Great Tips For Treating A Bad Sunburn

intro-sunburnYou were out on the boat all day, you forgot to reapply sunscreen and before you knew it, you scored a nasty sunburn. Or maybe you were just mowing the lawn for an hour -– maybe it was even cloudy -– and it didn’t even cross your mind to put on sunscreen. Now you’re scorched.

No matter how many times we’re told we should use sunscreen every day, sometimes we fail. And when that happens, and your skin is blazing red, you’ve got to treat it. “Sunburn may seem like just a temporary situation,” says Robert Friedman, M.D., a dermatologist at New York University’s Langone Medical Center.

“It looks bad, it hurts, it peels, but it can also cause long-lasting damage to the skin, such as wrinkles or even skin cancer.”
