    5 Outrageous Facts About Indoor Tanning

    5 Outrageous Facts About Indoor Tanning

    Ever wanted to get a tan? That’s probably all of us at some point. We’re all probably aware of the health risks of staying too long in the sun too. So, many people resort to tanning beds (AKA “the safer option”).  Newsflash: they’re not. Tanning beds are – and will never be – safe OR safer than the sun.
    Which is why today, in dedication to Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I’ll share with you in detail how tanning beds affect our skin and overall health.
     
    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:

    An Introduction to the 3 Most Common Types of Skin Cancer

    An Introduction to the 3 Most Common Types of Skin Cancer

    Caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable. This is why – as a dermatologist – I want you to understand how to monitor changes that might occur on your skin. Of course, prevention (AKA proper sunscreen and sun-protective clothing application) is better than cure. Despite our best efforts, however, prevention isn’t 100% guaranteed.
    So, as part of my series for Skin Cancer Awareness month, let’s dive into the visual clues we need to look out for (with the 3 most common types of skin cancer) and how to prevent precancerous growth from fully developing into skin cancer.
     
    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:
    When to go to your Dermatologist for a skin evaluation How skin cancer starts and progresses – AND how it can be treated Risk factors associated with skin cancer RESOURCES:

    Sunscreen Reapplication Explained: Science-backed Tips on How to Maximize Sun Protection

    Sunscreen Reapplication Explained: Science-backed Tips on How to Maximize Sun Protection

    If you’re wearing sunscreen every day (which I’m sure you do, Superwoman!), then you’re already following the number-one rule for sun protection. The 2nd rule – proper re-application – is just as important, however. See, friction, heat, sweat, and other environmental factors remove sunscreen off of our skin. In fact, it gets removed every 2 hours more or less. And so does your sun protection. With that, as an introduction for Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I’ll teach you how to reapply your sunscreen with success every day. Sun protection may never be perfect 24/7 but every minute matters.
     
    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:
    Methods for making sunscreen re-application easier Sunscreen reapplication methods for various situations Sunscreen products that are perfect for helping you re-apply sunscreen on-the-go
