Now that the weather is getting warmer, people are spending more and more time outside enjoying the sun. While having fun under the sun is great, you should remember that you need to protect your skin properly for it.

We know that it can be easy to forget to put on sunscreen, or maybe you might think that it’s not hot enough for you to need sunscreen. However, when it comes to your skin, the temperature outside does not matter. Skin cancer is not the result of being under the hot sun – it’s the result of being exposed to the UV rays emitted by the sun.

Remember to always apply sunscreen whenever you plan on being exposed to sunlight for a good amount of time. It only takes a few minutes to ensure that your skin is properly protected. For all of your skin care needs, contact Dermatology Institute to schedule an appointment.
