UV Safety Month and Your Skin

Sun_DamageSummer is always the perfect opportunity to bask in the sun, relax by the pool with a drink, and try to get a bit more bronzed before the winter months hit. However, it’s always important to keep skin safety in mind and prevent sun damage—particularly during UV Safety Month.
The sun’s rays can have some painful consequences, and you certainly don’t want to get burns, blisters or skin cancer from your relaxing leisure time outside. Some statistics show that one in five Americans will develop a form of skin cancer in their lifetime. That’s why it is so important to always wear sunscreen before any kind of time spent outdoors, and here at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, your healthy and beautiful skin is our priority.
Not only is skin cancer an issue when it comes to UV safety, but the epidermis has accelerated rates of aging when you haven’t protected your skin. Wrinkles and “leathery” skin are conditions that your skin can develop over time without enough sun protection.
We sell SkinMedica’s Daily Physical Defense SPF 30 that goes well under makeup and will protect your skin from sun damage. Even on more cloudy days, the sun’s UV rays can penetrate an overcast sky—so always remember to wear sunscreen even on days you assume you aren’t soaking up any UV rays. The SkinMedica formula will not clog your pores, so you don’t have to worry about breakouts or excess oil when wearing it.
We know how powerful the sun’s rays are here in Arizona—and the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Whether you are going for a swim, doing a morning run or just relaxing outside, it’s crucial that you wear sunblock and a wide-brimmed hat (to protect the face, neck and shoulders).
