With the summer season on the horizon, many people are getting ready to go out and enjoy some time in the sun. Some people walk a delicate and potentially dangerously thin line between developing a bronze tan and suffering a sunburn. In many of these cases, people will opt to use a sunblock with a mild sun-protection factor and will casually watch for early signs of sunburn before reapplying a stronger sunblock or seeking shelter from the sun.
Here at Dermatology Center, Dr. Kraig K. Jenson reminds people to apply a high-quality sunblock to their skin on a regular basis. This is of the utmost importance for preserving the health of your skin. Not only will this help prevent sunburn, but it can also reduce your chances of suffering other skin maladies. This could include the gradual formation of dark spots on hands, shoulders, and face as well as the appearance of skin aging.
Continuing research has also found a relationship between inadequate sun protection and an increase in different forms of skin cancer.
To help prevent these issues, you should always wear a sunblock with a high SPF number. If you are struggling to find one that meets your needs on the retail level, Dr. Kraig K. Jenson can provide you with a high-quality sunblock.
If you live in the Orem, Utah, area and you need help finding a high-quality sunblock, you should call 801-224-5200 to set up a consultation with the staff at Dermatology Center.
