Warming temps are here, and the outdoors is calling.

Your skin is calling you too, asking for a little extra help, reminding you that this month focuses on skin health and the deadliest of skin cancers. 

Check and protect your skin during Melanoma Awareness Month in May. Those long lazy youthful days spent lounging pool gave you a deep golden tan. Fast-forward to today and look again. Evidence of those carefree and unprotected hours in the sun now show up on your face and body as sun-damaged skin.

Fine to medium wrinkles, sagging skin, freckles, uneven pigmentation, and dark spots have appeared. Sometimes, they show up as precancerous lesions or skin cancer. Learn what to look for when checking out your skin and check it often. If you see anything new, changing or unusual, don’t wait – get it checked out as soon as possible. 

Reversing Sun Damaged Skin


Be pro-active to prevent further damage. Wear sunscreen or other skin protection items, such as hats, long sleeves and sunglasses. Spend time in the shade, especially during the time of day that the sun’s ray are at the strongest. Remember, the sun’s rays can cause damage even on cloudy days. Re-apply sunscreen, too!


Get treatment for your sun-damaged skin. This ranges from daily applications of topical gels and creams, to chemical and mechanical peels, to laser treatments. These options can temporarily fade uneven pigment, smooth roughened or wrinkled skin, shrink pores and even restart collagen production.
