Wearing a mask correctly can prevent the spread of #COVID19. When wearing one:
1️⃣ Wash or sanitize your hands before putting it on
2️⃣ Ensure it covers your nose and mouth
3️⃣ Avoid touching it in public
4️⃣ Wash your mask after every use
Regular skin exams are crucial to healthy skin. The earlier a skin cancer is detected, the better the prognosis. Whether you go once a year or twice a year for your skin check, make sure you think about your eyes too. See an opthalmologist once a year and ask them to check the back of your eye for any sun damage. And when you head outdoors in the beautiful San Diego sunshine don’t forget your sunscreen, hat AND sunglasses!
Do you hate the feeling of sunscreen? Are you “allergic” to sunscreen? Maybe you’re just using the wrong sunscreen?! Choosing between physical or chemical sunscreens can make a big difference. At dermsd we favor physical sunscreens that contain zinc and/or titanium dioxide. What are some of the benefits of a physical sunscreen? Unlike it’s chemical counterpart, physical sunscreens don’t absorb into the skin but rather sit on top of the skin. Another perk- chemical sunscreens need to be applied at least 20 minutes prior to exposure, while physical sunscreens offer more immediate sun protection. Some of our favorites include Elta MD and Revision Intellishade. Remember to apply every 1-2 hours while outdoors to prevent sunburn! #dermsd #drjasonlupton #antiaging #skin #sunscreen #skincare #summer #sun #sunblock #suncare #sunprotection #sunshine #uvprotection
