A fantastic way to prematurely age your skin and look like a piece of old leather is to go into the sun without protection, whether it’s to lay out poolside or pull weeds in the garden. Tanning beds and booths are also a great way to damage and age your skin. However, if sun damage and skin cancer aren’t your goals, the best way to stay looking youthful is to protect the skin on your face and all over your body. This starts with wearing at least an SPF-15 sunscreen on your face daily, and for women, this is easy because many foundations have built-in sunscreen. Hats and sunglasses are also a great way to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. However, if you’ve been neglect in this, or if you missed the boat altogether on sun protection, don’t worry. Houston board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, Anthony Nikko, M.D., is an expert in treating skin conditions caused by sun damage. He is also an expert at excising skin cancer in such a way to prevent spreading of cancer and to minimize scarring.
