    Sun Safety Tips

    Excessive sun-exposure can lead to loss of moisture from the skin, dark patches and even premature aging. The skin needs physical protection against harmful rays which is provided by sunscreens. A few tips on buying and using sunscreen lotions:

    A good sunscreen should provide protection against the sun's UVA and UVB rays.

    Apply the sunscreen about 20 minutes before sun-exposure. This gives the skin time to absorb it.

    1. A patient with sun damaged skin should visit his or her clinician at least once a year for a thorough examination of the skin in light exposed areas.
    2. A patient who has had a skin cancer with a sun damaged skin should keep all follow-up visits until the cancer is pronounced cured.
