5 Tips To Protect Your Skin This Fall

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Sun damage can occur throughout the fall and winter months. Ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB) are the cancer causing rays - and UVA is present year round. The sun reflects off snow and can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin.

Here's 5 tips for staying sun protected during the cold months ahead:

1. Stay away from tanning beds.

2. Wear sunscreen daily. We recommend a full spectrum of SPF 30+ to use on your body and face.

3. Reapply every two hours.

4. Wear sunglasses and a hat.

5. Get your skin checked annually by a dermatologist.
