Is it Skin Cancer?
You may worship the sun, but the relationship isn’t mutual. Living in the Deep South, especially on the coast, urges us to spend time on boats, courts, courses, sandbars and beaches—activities none of us are willing to forfeit. The good news is you don’t have to give up relishing your sunny days! Read on as our local skincare and medical experts shine the light on how to protect your skin from cancer.

What should I look for in a sunscreen?
Choosing a sunscreen isn’t as easy as it used to be. The next generation of sunscreens is just hitting the market. SPF 15 is usually fine, but for people with very fair skin, history of skin cancer, or conditions like Lupus, which increases sensitivity to sunlight, they should consider SPF 30 or higher. People who have very sensitive skin, or conditions like rosacea, can benefit from sunscreens designed for children.
