More sun exposure leads to more UV damage and cancer risks

“In the case of sun exposure, too much of a good thing is not a good thing. While there are wonderful qualities associated with sunshine, there are dangerous ones as well. Sun exposure, especially unprotected, is the number one leading cause of premature aging and fast-growing skin cancer diagnoses. This is why it’s imperative that you apply broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen daily, and reapply every 2 hours. This is true for all skin tones, especially lighter tones.”

Outdoor living brings outdoor risk exposure

“As we head outdoors more often in the spring and summertime months, skin is more exposed to outdoor pollutants that can lead to increased sensitivity, dehydration, and flare ups in certain skin conditions like: acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. The best way to combat this?  Include topical antioxidants such as stabilized vitamin C, vitamin E, Vitamin A (retinoids) and well-known skin-barrier strengthening hydrators like glycerine, hyaluronic acid (long and short chain), and essential fatty acids (oils) into your daily skincare routine.”
