Family Standing on the Beach at Sunset Atlanta GA

There’s no doubt that you’re already beginning to venture outdoors a lot more this spring. The warmer temperatures are a great invitation to enjoy your outdoor adventures and relaxation. We’re sure you’re ready to get outside, but is your skin ready for it?

If you’re reaching into the depths of your beach bag from last summer or the back of your medicine cabinet for your sunscreen, please be careful. Expired sunscreen can be ineffective and cause you to get an unwanted burn the first time you venture out with it on your skin. The FDA requires all sunscreens to mark when they expire unless the product has been proven to last at least three years. The FDA explains that you can assume your sunscreen is good for three years past its purchase date unless it is stamped with a specific date.

If you’re not good at remembering when you bought your sunscreen here are some helpful steps to take. Use a permanent marker to write the purchase date on your bottle. However, be aware that you can’t know how long that bottle has been sitting on the shelf. As a general rule, it might be helpful to purchase new sunscreen at the beginning of spring season every year.

When choosing a sunscreen, reach for the broad-spectrum products. These sunscreens protect you from UVB and UVA rays. Choose an SPF of 15 or higher for UVB protection. For UVA protection, look for ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, ecamsule, avobenzone and water, and sweat resistance. If you suffer from skin problems or allergies, avoid scented sunscreens and ones that contain alcohol or preservatives.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
