Summer Glow


I probably spend 80% of my day outdoors in the summertime.  From the pool to the beach to the boat, me and my family stay active while beating the heat.  I always protect my skin and my boys by slathering on at least a 50 spf sunscreen, reapplying often, taking shade when we can, wearing hats and sunglasses, and hydrating all day.  Taking all of these precautions are great, but the one thing that most people forget to do is getting their skin checked annually by a dermatologist.  I got my first skin screening at Germain Dermatology a few months ago and thankfully everything went well.   The head-to-toe skin examination can prevent skin cancer as well as detect skin issues before they worsen.  I even went a step further and experienced the Reveal Imager which analyzes the skin’s surface and underlying skin to further evaluate hyperpigmenation, sun damage, textural issues, wrinkles, rosacea, spider veins and more.  A bit scary, but eye opening to see the status of your skin in high definition.  Germain Dermatology designs a treatment plan and skin care regimen specifically for you after your skin is analyzed.  The sun’s rays can be damaging and taking precautions is so important in the summer and all year round.
