How to Protect Your Skin This Spring

April 2, 2016

The season’s warming up – and that means you’re penciling in barbeques, baseball games, and pool parties into your social calendar.  After this particularly cold winter, you’re itching to spend your days basking in the warmth of spring sunshine.

But before you step foot outside, take another look at your skin care regimen – because you may be leaving yourself vulnerable to spring’s biggest threats.

What Should You Look Out For?

At Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. and Aesthetic Center, serving the greater Atlanta metro, our aestheticians specialize in keeping your skin safe and sound throughout every season.  Now that spring has sprung – and summer isn’t far behind! – here’s what you can do to keep your skin safe and healthy:

  1. Stay Protected From UV Rays: No matter how much you love worshipping the sun, no tan is worth your skin’s health.  UV rays can lead to the deadliest forms of melanoma, a deadly type of skin cancer that’s on the rise.  Wear an SPF sunscreen that’s at 50 or above, as this level can keep your skin safe and sound.
  1. Don’t Fall For Sun Myths: Base tans won’t keep you safe from harmful UV rays; and yes, you can still get a sunburn even on a cloudy day.  Don’t let these myths prevent you from investing in the best skin care routine possible.
  1. Invest in a Warm-Weather Moisturizer: Now that winter is behind us, swap out those heavy creams for a lighter serum that moisturizes and protects against UV damage.  Bonus points if the moisturizer has antioxidants to safeguard your skin against free radicals and environmental pollutants.

In addition to these key tips, you should also schedule regular skin care appointments at Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. and Aesthetic Center, serving the Atlanta metro with location in Marietta, Smyrna, and Cartersville, to name a few.  With summer on the horizon, our expert skin care professionals can keep your skin safe, healthy, and looking fabulous.
