Sun Protection 101: Essential Tips for Healthy Skin
Dr. Adam Greenberg, M.D., FAAD, Medical Director of Sunshine State Dermatology, offers four key sun protection tips for vibrant and healthy skin in sunny Florida:
Sunscreen Wisdom: Frontline defense begins with sunscreen. Dr. Greenberg recommends a minimum of 30 SPF, applied every two hours. Opt for products with "broad spectrum, UVA & UVB protection." He favors eco-friendly options containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
Clothing Matters: Dr. Greenberg emphasizes the effectiveness of clothing with a minimum 30 UPF factor in blocking harmful rays. Stressing full coverage during outdoor activities, especially swimming, he highlights the significance of protective clothing for overall skin health.
Hats with UPF: Nurse Practitioner Jessica Wycoff warns against relying solely on a baseball cap for sun protection. She recommends hats with UPF protection and wide brims to add an extra layer of defense against harmful UV rays.
Preventative Dermatology: Dr. Greenberg underscores the critical role of preventative procedures in detecting pre-cancerous sun damage. Regular skin examinations, aided by a dermatoscope, identify subtle changes. Emphasizing the risk of untreated actinic keratoses progressing to squamous cell skin cancer, he advocates timely interventions like cryotherapy or topical treatments for proactive mitigation of sun-induced skin malignancies.
