Protecting your skin on a daily basis with sunscreen sounds easy enough.  However, if you have been to the local drugstore and tried to decipher the sunscreen labels, you might feel that you need a degree in chemistry to figure them out!  How does one choose the most effective products available as you scan the tiny print of long, foreign words on the sunscreen bottle.

There are three types of Ultraviolet rays: UVA, UVB and UVC.  The SPF rating on the bottle of sunscreen measures the protection that a sunscreen can offer against UVB rays because this is the ultraviolet radiation known to cause sunburn.  The SPF number on the bottle, whether it is a 15, 30 or 50, is the comparison of how long it would take for unprotected skin to get red versus skin protected with that number sunscreen. 

 For instance, if it can take 30 minutes for your unprotected skin to start getting red, using an SPF 15 sunscreen should prevent turning red 15 times longer or 7.5 hours.  However, a single application of sunscreen to exposed skin then heading out the door for the day is not enough sun protection. #skincare #dermatology

If toenails are thick and difficult to cut, soak them in warm salt water for 5-10 minutes and apply a 10% urea cream (over-the-counter).  Trim as usual. #nailcare #nailtips #dermatology

Just because a product is “natural” doesn’t make it safe from harming your skin.  Unfortunately, many false claims are made to consumers about how wonderful certain skin care products are, but no mention is made of their potential to cause contact dermatitis.

Reactions to skin care products depend on the condition of the skin and the immune system.  Uninjured skin is an excellent barrier to most substances people come into contact with daily.  If skin is over dry or injured in any way, openings make that barrier less protective.  Skin reactions are classified as irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. #dermatitis #skin care

UV radiation from the sun, tanning beds, or sunlamps may cause skin cancer and can have a damaging effect on the immune system.  It can also cause premature aging of the skin, giving it a wrinkled, leathery appearance.
