Sunscreen helps prevent sun damage to the skin which can protect against the effects of photoaging and the development of skin cancer. Regardless of whether or not the sun is out, applying sunscreen on a consistent basis is extremely important. With the weather warming up in Columbus, Ohio, it is vital to constantly apply sunscreen. Dr. Alan J. Parks of Eastside Dermatology provides you with three sunscreen tips
- The SPF of sunscreen should be at least #30 or higher.
- Sunscreen should be applied at least 20 minutes prior to going outdoors.
- Sunscreen should be reapplied if out for more than one and a half to two hours.
