A daily skin care routine is the key to avoiding many of the medical and cosmetic concerns that prompt people to make an appointment with a dermatologist. If you’re concerned about sun exposure, want to learn about how to slow down the signs of aging or want to improve the tone and texture of your skin, then it’s important to use quality skin care products on a daily basis.

We’ll help you address any concerns you may have, and we can also provide helpful guidance so you can look forward to a future of healthy, glowing skin.
Perhaps one of the most important things people can do for their skin is to protect it from the sun. This means applying sunscreen every day. It’s probably advice you’ve heard before, and you might wonder why dermatologists are so concerned about ordinary sun exposure. The reality is that the sun’s harmful UV rays are responsible for the vast majority of damage that occurs to our skin. From age spots and wrinkles to the various forms of skin cancer, overexposure to the sun is dangerous. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize how vulnerable their skin is until it is too late.
That’s why the foundation of any skin care routine has to include wearing sunscreen. Dermatologists advocate wearing sunscreen 365 days a year. Even on dreary, gray days, the sun still has the power to cause damage. Moreover, it’s important to apply sunscreen on often-forgotten places like the hands, the back of the neck and the chest to protect these areas.
At Shelby Dermatology, we recommend sun-protection products for all of our patients. Many of these products are available at our clinic along with our favorite cleansers, toners, serums and moisturizers. Make an appointment to discuss your skin with one of our dermatologists. We’ll recommend the best products to address any of your unique skin care concerns and introduce you to more ways to protect your skin from the sun. Healthy, glowing skin can be a reality when you adopt an effective skin care routine.
