ATLANTA, GA, August 20, 2018: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new blog on the Oculus website entitled, “Make Sun Protection A Year-Round Habit Even Though Summer Fun Is Done,” in which Dr. Cole strongly suggests keeping sunscreen with daily skin care products.
Dr. Cole states, “No one likes to see the long days of summer fun come to an end.” He continues adding, “The seasons come and go and while the days of spending long hours outdoors are getting shorter, the sun is still strong and can be damaging to your skin. Especially if you are considering a facial procedure or have recently had one.”
“Whether it’s the summer sun or a crisp fall day, there’s nothing like good weather to get us outside,” writes Dr. Cole, adding, “This is why I recommend keeping your skin protected year round- not just on a sunny day, but every day.” He elaborates, “Clouds are deceptive and make you think you’re not being exposed to the sun’s harmful rays but any amount can cause damage to your skin. Regardless of the temperature outside, keep the sunscreen handy, keep your skin healthy and make the following three items a habit.”
Dr. Cole elaborates on the importance of daily sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and dermatologist visits.
