The snowblowers have been put away, and the snow brushes have been sent to the trunks. The focus in May shifts from the chilly weather to sunburn.
Dr. Jim Libecco from Allied Dermatology in Fairlawn joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss proper skincare as the weather warms up. Dr. Libecco stresses the use of sunscreen when being exposed to any sun for an extended period. Application for sunscreen should be a half hour before exposure, and should be used every two to three hours. Peak hours for sun are between 10 AM and 4 PM.
Per Dr. Libecco, a checkup with a dermatologist or primary care physician is suggested once a year.
