A Dermatologist Picks Skin-Protecting Products
The best products to guard your skin―summer, fall, winter, and spring.
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. By now you know that you need to wear it 365 days a year, outdoors and indoors, rain or shine. That it helps prevent melanoma, a skin cancer that kills approximately 3,000 U.S. women annually. And that it’s the easiest and often the most inexpensive way to help prevent wrinkles and dark spots. The next issue at hand: Which products protect skin best? Enter Mary H. Lien, a respected dermatologist and a melanoma specialist at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, in Tampa, who shares her picks. “I like products that offer serious UV protection,” she says. “And studies have shown that when you wear sunscreen combined with topical antioxidants, like vitamin C, you can reverse signs of sun damage you already have.”
