The summer is here and it is time for some fun in the sun. I am personally looking forward to spending more time outside, preferably on one of these beautiful beaches on the west coast of Florida.
However, before heading outside, here are some important important sun protection tips:
Why all the hype about skin protection because exposure to UVA / UVB can lead to aging, benign skin lesions such as seborrheic keratosis, cherry angiomas, solar lentigines to more serious skin issues such as basal and squamous cell carcinoma and unfortunately malignant melanoma.
Remember even when it is cloudy outside, UV radiation can still pass through the clouds , so is important to protect your skin.
Also every skin type needs to protect themselves from the negative effects of the sun!
One of the joys of living in Florida is to enjoy the sun, but let us protect our skin in the process.
