Want healthy skin this summer?  One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to protect it from the damaging rays of the sun. To make sure that your skin is safe throughout the hot months ahead, follow these skin care tips to prevent sun damage and skin cancer.

Skin Care Tips to Prevent Damage from the Sun

Stay inside during the hottest part of the day—The sun’s rays are the strongest between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Make sure to limit your time spent in the sun when the UV rays are the most intense.
Wear protective clothing—Even though it is hot outside, wearing long sleeves and long pants can help to protect your skin from becoming burnt or damaged from the sun. Even carrying an umbrella can help to keep the sun off of your face and body.
Make sunscreen a part of your everyday skin care routine—Sunscreen is a crucial element of any skin care routine. Look for sunscreen with a high SPF content to provide extra protection. Try the SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF 30 or the Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35 to make sure that your skin is safe from the sun.
Look for the perfect moisturizer—Moisturizer will help to keep your skin hydrated throughout the summer, and it can also provide elements of sun protection. At North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, we recommend the TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 for added sun protection.
