Summer may evoke fond memories of vacations and fun on the beach, but being out in the sun means paying special attention to your skin. All it takes is a little bit of knowledge and a little bit of preparation to keep your skin safe.

If you're going to be out in the sun, you definitely need to wear sunscreen. And if you're going to be wearing sunscreen, you definitely need to find an SPF that works for you. If you are looking for a facial sunscreen, we at Nulook Medspa recommend the TiZO3 Facial Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40. Poor skincare out in the sun can lead directly to the development of skin cancer.

Spray Tans
A spray tan can be a great way to show off your summer body, but be sure to consider the risk factors as well. While spray tans look great, they can also dry out the skin. Spray tans can also cause cancer, and it is recommended that you avoid contact with your eyes and mouth.

Flair Ups
If you're going to be out in the sun, you also have to consider your existing risk factors. People with rosacea tend to experience flare ups when they're in contact with direct sunlight, and the same is true of acne as well. On the other side of the equation, some acne sufferers may actually see diminished symptoms after exposure to the sun. If you have a serious skin condition that acts up in the sun, we recommend scheduling a consultation so we can help you develop a solid skin treatment plan. Those that suffer from acne are also vulnerable to flare ups from the sun even after properly putting sunscreen on their faces. For many the flare-ups can seem completely unbearable because the entire area will redden.
