Myth: You Only Need SPF During Bright, Sunny Weather

Sunscreen is typically associated with a relaxing day at the beach. You might be laying on a beach chair with your favorite hat, a good book and you’ve applied the goods. However, sunscreen should be used daily during sunny or overcast weather and no matter the location. Going out to your favorite coffee shop and doing some shopping? You need sunscreen then too. Dr. Lancer always tells patients that if there’s light, even from the lighting of a photo shoot, you need to protect your skin…and from head to toe.

For spring and summer tips, Dr. Lancer recommends that you apply Sheer Fluid Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen four times daily on all exposed skin. Very few sunscreens provide protection past 2-3 hours, so it’s important to reapply! Dr. Lancer’s sunscreen not only protects your skin from harmful UV rays, but also provides key anti-aging ingredients to keep skin looking and feeling youthful.

  • Sheer Fluid Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen – The weightless fluid sunscreen contains Gamay Grape Stem Cells, Sunflower Sprout Extracts and Chamomile Extract. Gamay Grape Stem Cells reduce the appearance of UV damage and fight the appearance of photo-aging, while Sunflower Sprout Extracts help improve skin radiance and a healthy glow. Chamomile Extract is also of importance as it helps calm and soothe the skin.
