Sun Protection. Tips from the Dermatologist

Other Suggested Tips Wear sun-protective clothing, along with hats, pants, and sunglasses to protect your eyes. Avoid tanning beds because they are directly linked to skin cancer. Stay in the shade as frequently as possible. The sun’s rays are very strong between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Apply 15 minutes before going outside. This gives the sunscreen enough time to absorb into your skin. Always use enough sunscreen. Apply liberally to make sure your skin is protected. Sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours. If you are in the water or sweating, opt to apply it even more frequently. Dealing with a Sunburn: Sometimes sunburn happens, even if precautions are taken. Sunburn is a painful reminder of the importance of sunscreen. Here are some ways to treat sunburn. Stay hydrated and drink a lot of water. This helps your skin rejuvenate and heal. Take a pain reliever with an anti-inflammatory, such as Ibuprofen. This will help reduce the swelling associated with a sunburn. Watch for blistering, which may require medical treatment.
