Slow Burn

As a SoCal girl, I grew up on the beach and in the sun. We spent the summer days lolling in the sand and lathering on the Ban de Soleil. In those days we certainly weren’t aware of the potential risk of skin cancer. It was all about “who has the best tan”!  Let’s face it, tan looks healthy, right?!!

The CDC says that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Here are a few tips for protecting your skin while you are at the beach, on the course, skiing (particularly in the high altitude and sunny days of Colorado) or just being outside.

Use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it before you head outside and reapply every few hours and sooner if you will be in the water.  Ideally, my dermatologist says I should apply it every morning after my normal skin care routine.  She also loves the idea of putting it on the back of your hands.  I love SkinCeuticals Sun Screen because it doesn’t feel slimy or thick.  Another fave here.

Cover exposed areas.  Wear a hat or visor – wide brimmed hats are stylish and add protection – and limit the time when skin is exposed. There are many swimsuits and shirts that have some UV protection. Wear sunglasses – I love big glasses.

Have your PCP do regular skin checks.  If you are suspicious about a mole or have seen texture or color changes, seek out a Dermatologist.

You don’t have to avoid heading outside, just take a few precautions.  Enjoy a great summer!

    Hey! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.

    With thanks!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be
    on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
    get irked while people think about worries that they plainly
    don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , people could take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!

      Jed,
      Gosh, I don’t know that I have a “structure” for my blogging time. I normally pick my topic and proceed with research and then writing. There are times when I don’t write as smoothly as I would like…..
      I appreciate you taking time to comment.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
