Don’t Be Confused About Sunscreen
When I’m planning to be outside for an extended period of time I’ve learned the hard way not to leave the house without sunscreen.
It’s been almost 14 years now that I was first diagnosed with skin cancer. Any form of cancer is hard to digest and it’s a gut-punch when the doctor tells you those words. For me, just a couple of spots at first.
Then over the years more would come off. And then the worst of all, PDT, Photodynamic Therapy. Yes, it did help greatly. But the procedure was pure hell!
ABC New reporter Jennifer Goldstein recently published an article, 15 Confusing Sunscreen Questions Answered. I urge you to read this to see if you are making the right choices.
One important question I asked my dermatologist, when handing her a bottle of the sunscreen I use was, “would this be a good choice for me.” She looked at the ingredients and told me it had all the right stuff. And, don’t ever go out in the sun without it.
Below is what she was really impressed with.
So, instead of sizzling take my advice, and that of the American Cancer Society:
Slip! Slop! Slap! …and Wrap! Slip on a shirt; slop on the sunscreen; slap on a hat and wrap on the sunglasses.
