Do you live in a sunny climate? It might be time to visit the dermatologist? I just found a new Dermatologist in Boca Raton and love him. He advised me to keep my skin healthy I must take care of it just like I would the rest of my body. If you have a broken finger, you visit an orthapeadic specialist. If you have a foot pain, then visit to the podiatrist might be in order. If you want to keep your skin health, a dermatologist visit might not be a bad idea.
Aside from paying a visit to your dermatologist often, you should also take the proper precautions to protect your skin. A few are listed below.
This is one of the most obvious, and most ofen overlooked areas that you can easily protest your skin. An SPF of 15 (30 is even better) is a great way to keep the harmful sun rays for damaging your skin. Don’t forget to reapply every few hours, more often if you are in the water.
Wear protective clothing
This is a tough one for me. The last thing I want to do is to put on MORE clothing in the summer. It’s already hot enough, but if you wear loose fitting, thin clothing, it can be bearable and will do the most good to protect you from the sun. If I am going to be outside for long periods of time, I have look fitting shirt made of very thing synthetic materials that I wear. These wick away the sweat, keep the sun off, and let the breeze through.
Limit the time in the sun
If you have to be out in the sun, try and limit the time that you are in it each day. If you don’t, YOU WILL GET BURNT. Also, try and limit or plan so that you aren’t in direct sun the hotttest hours of the day. The peak time, the time when the sun is most direct and intense is from 12-3pm. These hours should be avoided if at all possible.
