Sun Protection Tips


Sun Protection Tips

     Our skin is the largest organ of the body and often the most neglected. It is our first line of defense against pollutants, ultraviolet violet (UV) radiation and other environmental factors.
     A regular skin regimen coupled with SPF sunscreen and topical antioxidants has proven effective in minimizing the damaging effects of the environment as well as helping to protect skin health.

Use sunscreen with SPF 15 daily, even in winter.
    Remember to re-apply sunscreen after perspiring and swimming.
    Limit sun exposure and practice sun avoidance (especially midday).
    Wear protective clothing, sunglasses with UV protection and hats with wide brims.
