The unofficial beginning of Summer is this weekend and WOW — it is already super HOT out! I posted a video below that I really hope you will watch. A common misconception is that you cannot die from skin cancer. Unfortunately, about 8,000 people will die of melanoma in the U.S. this year. Sunscreen should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin. Reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place, so reapply the same amount every two hours. Sunscreens should also be reapplied immediately after swimming, toweling off, or sweating a great deal.
I tell my clients – If you don’t need your flashlight, you need your sunscreen. —- No excuses.
