OC Register – The Big 4
Our own Dr. Nancy Silverberg’s expert skin care advice was recently sought for an article in the OC Register giving advice on how some simple steps taken now can improve your health and appearance – just in time for beach season! In the article titled “The Big 4,” journalist Landon Hall quotes four experts in four health-related fields, including nutrition, exercise, sleep, and skin care. Dr. Silverberg offered her advice for protecting your skin in sunny southern California. She says that people who live in our type of climate should wear sunscreen every day of the year, and most people should apply a product with an SPF of at least 30. Dr. Silverberg advises that you should also make sure that you buy sunscreen that says “broad spectrum,” which protects against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. She says applying sunscreen should be a part of your normal daily routine.
Dr. Silverberg also discussed the necessity of having any unusual discolorations, bumps, or other irregularities checked by a dermatologist as soon as possible. She recommends at least one professional skin check each year, and you should do regular self-examinations.
As far as treatment options for wrinkles, skin damage, and other conditions, Dr. Silverberg says that she offers a number of procedures – including BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser skin resurfacing, and other skin rejuvenation options – that can help you rejuvenate your skin with healthier, more youthful-looking results.
With good protection from the sun, a keen eye on your skin, and options that can help you enhance your skin’s appearance, you can feel great about heading to the beach any time of the year!
