The weather has been getting warmer and more sunny in the past weeks. A timely reminder to put on your sunblocks to protect your skin from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. Excessive exposure to ultraviolet light can cause sunburns, pigmentation and accelerate the aging process of the skin. More importantly, it can also lead to the development of skin cancer. Use a sunblock that is at least SPF 30, and has both UVA and UVB protection. Sunblocks should be re-applied after 3- 4hours if you are under the sun for a prolonged period of time. If engaging in heavy physical activity or water spots, do use a water-resistent type of sunblock.
