You know it’s coming. Glorious Summer is on her way with longer days, swimming pools, the beach, the golf course and the unavoidable sun damage.
Here’re some quick reminders of staying safer in the sun while still enjoying the California sunshine.
Already suffering from sun damage you picked up over past summers? It may be tempting to “leave it alone” but you’ll do better if you clean up sun damage as much as possible on an ongoing basis. Those errant DNA instructions can build on each other. And did you know you can get additional sun damage in the dark?
See this LA Times article and video. This video refers to “evening after” sunscreen but there is no developed product to that effect as yet. Our best advice is to use common sense in the sun and allow yourself those extra few minutes needed to apply sunscreen. We never hear anyone undergoing a skin cancer biopsy say, “I wish I’d not used sunscreen.”
