Whether you're young or older, the best time to adopt healthy skin habits is now.
A Lifetime of Healthy Skin
Aging and exposure to the sun take a huge toll on our most visible features — our face, arms, hands, and legs. With more outdoor activity, preventive skin care becomes an essential part of your daily health regimen.
Our mission is to teach and educate patients about what they can do to protect themselves. Preventive dermatology focuses on ways to help you minimize skin problems.
Whether you golf, swim, bike or just walk under the strong Florida sun, we believe everyone can benefit from adopting a strong preventative mindset . . . regardless of your age. A lifetime of better skin is waiting!
- Avoid the sun during its strongest time — between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- Cover up by wearing wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, and pants.
- Seek shade.
- Use sunscreen and reapply it often (at least every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating).
- Always use a sunscreen that has an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or more and offers both UVA and UVB protection (broad-spectrum).
- Avoid tanning beds.
