Key takeaways from the video
- Men have skin issues too. Outside, cover your ears with sun protection as many skin cancers are appearing here on men. Cover the back of the neck with sunscreen or a hat. For sports like golf, wear gloves to protect your hands from the sun.
- Women, remember sun damage is cumulative and ages skin. Fair skin women should apply a SPF 30, keep covered and stay out of the sun between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. or seek shade under a tree or an umbrella.
- Take supplements to protect and build your immune system. Go back to the basics and protect from the inside-out with a Multivitamin, Vitamin D and Lipids, which are an anti-inflammatory and help the immune system.
- There are multiple kinds of SPF sunscreens, including oil free ones for acne prone skin. Look for fewer ingredients on the label as they tend to be healthier.
- Sun protective clothing and hats with SPF are available for all ages. Choose large brims and long sleeves as they protect more skin.
