Sunblock Is Still Important in Late Summer and Autumn

Posted .

As the summer season starts to fade the rays of light coming from the sun start to fade in strength. This can decrease the amount of tan you experience when you’re outside. However, you shouldn’t let the decreased intensity of the sun lull you into forgoing the use of an appropriate sunblock.

When the sun’s rays contact unprotected human skin several natural processes result. This includes increased melanin production as well as increased Vitamin D production.

At the same time, the cellular function of your skin cells can also be affected by sun exposure. This could cause a sunburn, decreased exfoliation, and increased appearance of skin aging on exposed parts of your body.

Even with the waning strength of the sun it is wise to to apply a high SPF sunblock like the one’s available at Dr. Banki and Dr. Paletta’s clinic in Warwick, Rhode Island. If you are having trouble determining the right SPF for your complexion, you can schedule a consultation appointment.
