Although UV Safety Month is the perfect time to bring attention to sun safety, it’s important to remember skin protection throughout the whole year. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure is the root cause of most skin cancers. It’s important to protect yourself with: a yearly CCSD skin check, sun protective clothing like hats, sunglasses, UPF shirts, and of course sunscreen. We love EltaMD, Colorescience, Neocutis Journee and Revision Intellishade TruPhysical from our skincare store, Chicago Skin Science! If you’re looking for UPF protective clothing, try Mott50, a chicago-based company! Make sure that your sunglasses have a proper UV coating for 100% ultraviolet protection. And as always, call us to book your skin exam today because early detection is the BEST protection!
