20% Off Sun Protective Clothing

· Skin Cancer · Comments Off on 20% Off Sun Protective Clothing

BloqUV is a North Miami company that offers sun protective clothing and is giving my patients a 20% discount. I am impressed with the softness of the fabric and how it wicks away moisture. I love the variety of fashionable styles in lots of vibrant colors.

I am not affiliated with the company, nor do I receive any compensation. I do believe sun protective clothing is an important part of protecting yourself from the damaging rays of the sun. In addition to sunscreen, wear protective UPF clothing, a hat and seek out shade, especially from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Prevent Face Mask Irritation

· COVID-19 · Comments Off on Prevent Face Mask Irritation

A recent study found that about half of us who wear face masks will suffer from acne, dermatitis, itch, or pressure injuries.  The likelihood of developing one of these conditions is determined by how long you wear a mask.  Facial skin problems begin to appear with 4 to 6 continuous hours of mask-wearing.

We should continue wearing masks and washing our hands as we enter the flu season.  You can take some preventative measures to avoid irritation from your face mask:

– stick to mild, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic skincare
– skip makeup (go without foundation, powder and blush)
– just use a light moisturizer and sunscreen on your face if you’re going to be wearing a face mask. I have moisturizers available at my office that also include SPF—great for when you are wearing a mask.
– limit face washing to two times/day and after sweating
– apply moisturizer before and after you wear your mask
– throw away a disposable mask after one day’s use
– cloth masks should be laundered after one day’s use
