Summer Skin Care

summer skin careSummer skin care is extremely important.  Windows in your car, home and office don’t completely protect your skin from UVA rays. UVA rays penetrate your skin more deeply and can still get through.  Use sunscreen when driving or sitting by a sunny window.  You can get a sunburn and still experience sun damage even on a cloudy day.  Up to 80% of the suns ultraviolet rays can penetrate through thin clouds and fog.  Skin cancer does not only happen on sun exposed areas, it can develop even where the sun doesn’t shine.  While basal and squamous cell carcinomas typically appear on sun-exposed parts of the body, melanoma can occur wherever there are pigment cells.  Skin cancer is not just exclusive to skin, it can affect your eyes and lips also.  The bottom line is when you are exposed to the sun; wear plenty of sunscreen and lip balm with an SPF rating.  If you don’t see a dermatologist annually, give yourself a head to toe skin examination regularly looking for any visible changes.  Don’t only practice summer skin care, but year round skin care.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.
