Our resident dermatologist Dr. Tom McGovern shares everything you need to know about the sun and your skin, including skin types, when to wear sunscreen, how to avoid sunburn and dark spots, how to prevent skin damage that causes cancer and aging, and more.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- UVA ages the skin, UVB burns and causes skin cancer. Sunscreen mainly blocks UVB, and only some UVA. If you want to look younger when you’re older, protect your skin from sun exposure!
- There is hope for people with sun damage! Look into antioxidant sunscreen and tinted sunscreen.
- We are made in the image and likeness of God – so leave that likeness alone! You are beautiful as God created you, no need to change that.
