A gentle reminder from the dermatologist: Your skin deserves the best sun protection which means:
- Covering up, sunscreen alone isn't enough, and remember the fabric that most summer clothes are made from doesn't give you very good protection. For intense sun exposure, buy sun protective clothing or use SunGuard to make sun protective clothing from what's already in your closet.
- Create shade with hats and umbrellas.
- Use more than one strategy to keep the UV rays out of your skin.
- Apply only the best sunscreens and do it correctly!
