Sun Damage Prevention & Treatments

Your Face Starts Here – Don’t Forget to Protect!

Your facial presentation begins at your open collar so don’t forget to protect the décolleté and neck! Overexposure to the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) light can lead to skin cancer and precancers like actinic keratoses (AKs). Since sun damage accumulates over time, it’s never too late to start a sun protection regimen. Many people remember to put sunscreen on their face, but forget to apply sunscreen to the décolleté area (neck and chest). Here are a few tips for prevention:

  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. Daily use may even lower your long-term risk of skin cancer.
  • Exfoliate. The buildup of stratum corneum (the dead, outermost skin cell layer) can make skin appear blotchy and uneven.
  • Hydrate. Summer exposure to sun, chlorine, and salt water can dry out your skin – even the heels of your feet can be affected.
  • Antioxidants. A variety of antioxidants can improve the health and quality of your skin, and can even reverse some discoloration and wrinkles.
