Want to know the key to aging gracefully? We’ll give you hint. It often comes in a bottle, and has the letters S, P and F on the label. If you guessed sunscreen, way to go!
May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, which means it’s time to talk about skin health. It may seem too obvious, but the most important tool in your beauty arsenal, bar none, is sunscreen. Are you a diligent SPF user? If not, we’ve provided the following three foolproof tips for keeping your skin protected and gorgeous all year long.
Do Double Duty:
If concealer or moisturizer is your go-to every morning, be sure to a choose products that include SPF 30 or greater. We also recommend adding an extra dollop of sunscreen to your morning routine for added protection. We offer top-shelf sunscreens at Papilio Spa and Wellness including EltaMD® Clear SPF 45 which is great for acne prone skin. In fact, many of my patients report improved overall skin clarity when using EltaMD Clear SPF 45 daily. We also offer many ZO Skin Health products that offer exceptional SPF in addition to the ZO SkinHealth sunscreen line.
Ch-Ch-Check You Out:
We all loathe lectures about how bad the sun is for our skin-especially after a long and cold winter and spring, but SPF is truly the most important factor in improving and protecting our skin health. In addition to daily use and reapplication of sunscreens, regular skin checks for suspicious-looking moles and spots are paramount for staying on top of your skin’s health. I also advise all of my patients schedule annual skin cancer screenings with our dermatologists.
Be A Shady Character:
It’s no coincidence that people who age exceptionally well are often seen sporting wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses. If you want to postpone aging and look like an incognito celebrity in the process, donning your biggest and best hat and shades is a sure bet.
