Dr. Schultz's Thoughts
After the reading the report, Dr. Schultz commented: "For years we [doctors] told patients that smoking caused skin cancer. After copious studies, finally they get it. For years we [doctors] told patients that unprotected sun exposure caused premature aging of their skin resulting in lines, wrinkles and sun spots. The current study from Australia, a pioneer country in sun awareness, finally proves it. There's no more refuting that the skin care version of the "smoking gun" is the 'Sizzling Sun'. This is arguably the most important piece of skincare news in the past few years!"
Rain or Shine
Remember to use a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB (broad spectrum) protection with a minimum SPF of 15 to 30. Be sure to reapply after swimming and sweating (although there are a few exceptions to this rule, such as the makeup rule) As Dr. Schultz likes to remind his patients, you don't have to avoid the sun, you just have to protect yourself while you're in it.
