Summer is almost here – and that means it’s time to whip your springtime sun safety habits back into shape!
As the warmer weather approaches, it might be tempting to enjoy a few afternoons of sunshine without paying attention to your skin. Don’t be fooled – just a few hours of exposure to UV rays without SPF protection can be enough to promote hyperpigmentation, darken existing scars, and increase your odds for damaging skin diseases.
Here at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD in Powell, Tennessee, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tom Gallaher and his team of licensed aestheticians have some recommendations for patients who are interested in top-notch sun protection that also promotes fantastic skin care. The following are our recommendations for springtime sun safety:
- Obagi Sunscreen: By now, you may know that Obagi is one of the best skincare lines offered by medical spas and plastic surgeons. Their sunscreen continues this trend of excellence by offering superior SPF protection with the kinds of ingredients that encourage better skin. Obagi sunscreens are designed with a variety of cosmetic concerns in mind, including acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, and more.
