Your Cleanser Can Now Also Be Your Sunscreen

Your Cleanser Can Now Also Be Your Sunscreen

One of my best friends just found a cancerous mole on her back. She lives in NYC and works ridiculous hours in an office, and yet still managed to spend enough time unprotected in the sun for this to happen. Luckily, all it took was a short procedure to remove it, but it still cost her $12,000, even with insurance…in case – aside from wrinkles – you needed more motivation to lather on sunscreen every day (even in the winter, it is a MUST!).

Can the Sun Actually Help Treat Acne?

Can the Sun Actually Help Treat Acne?

As someone who has struggled on and off with acne, I’m always looking for possible culprits and cures. I’ve written about the importance of wearing sunscreen enough that I wear it (pretty much) every day. I spend a good chunk of the year in Israel, though, and there have certainly been times when I haven’t re-applied as much as necessary. I’ve noticed that my skin seems to look better when it’s exposed to the sun, so I wondered if the rays can actually improve acne and if so, whether or not that benefit is influenced by the use of UVA/UVB protection. To find out, I turned to famed NYC dermatologist, host of DermTV.com, and creator of BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz, Dr. Neal Schultz.
