NEW YORK, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Video News Release - The sun. We love it and we fear it.
The American Cancer Society says many of the more than 3 million skin cancer cases diagnosed annually could be prevented by protecting skin from excessive sun exposure and avoiding indoor tanning. World-renowned dermatologist and skincare expert Dr. Zein Obagi joins us with life-saving tips.
The sun is the #1 enemy of the skin. Too much time in the sun can cause dark spots, wrinkles, premature aging and ultimately can lead to skin cancer. When it comes to skin health, prevention can be simple: Minimize UV damage, prevent DNA damage and protect skin from the environment to improve overall skin health. If you do go into the sun, don't forget to check the areas that get the most sun exposure, such as scalp, back of the neck, hands, feet, and the bridge of the nose.
Light from your computer screen and infrared light can also cause free radical damage and aging. Choose a sunscreen such as ZO Skin Health Ossential® Smart Tone to protect against the full spectrum of harmful rays.
Apply ZO Skin Health's Oclipse Sunscreen + Primer SPF30, about 30 minutes before going outside — and reapply it throughout the day. Wear fabrics that allow your skin to breathe properly, like linen and cotton. Spandex and Lycra are comfortable, but they may trap sweat, congest pores, and cause breakouts on your back or neck. Using acne pads such as ZO Skin Health Offects TE-Pads Acne Pore Treatment reduce oiliness and exfoliate dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores and future breakouts.
Drink plenty of water or a sports drink. When your skin is not properly hydrated, it will appear more wrinkled, dry, and damaged. It's important to use products that help your skin replenish its own moisture barrier.
Your skin is the largest organ of your body. You should go to a dermatologist to take care of your skin. That's the only place you can find ZO products, and the only place you can get advice you can trust. If you want healthy skin, you need to use products that will stimulate the skin.
