It’s finally May, which signifies the return of sunshine and gorgeous skies, and the promise of summer soon-to-come! May is also Skin Cancer Awareness Month. In the US, more than 5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed every year, making it America’s most common cancer. Taking care of your skin is always important, but it’s especially crucial when you’re spending more time outside during hot Tennessee summers. 

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the following sun protection tips for skin cancer prevention

  • Cover up with clothing, hats, and UV-blocking sunglasses
  • Seek the shade, especially between 10 am and 4 pm
  • Avoid tanning, and never use UV tanning beds
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
  • Apply sunscreen every two hours daily, even if you’ll just be in direct sunlight for a short time
  • Examine your skin, head-to-toe every month
  • See a dermatologist at least once a year for a professional skin exam

Make sure you’re practicing proper skincare this spring and summer by following these guidelines. As Dr. Wendel says, “One of the best gifts you can give yourself is healthy, radiant skin.” In our office, you will find a few different kinds of sunscreen, all SPF 30 or higher, to best suit your skincare needs. This includes Wendel Mattifying Minerals Sunscreen Powder (SPF 30), SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen (tinted SPF 34), EltaMD UV Aero, Clear, Elements, and Sport sunscreen varieties, and DRJJWPS team favorite Neocutis MicroDay. Also, this month, if you donate a new bottle of sunscreen at our office for the YWCA, Nashville’s domestic violence shelter, you will receive a $25 gift card for SkinMedica at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery

At our office, we are preparing for summer by getting our summer wardrobe and bodies ready. Don’t forget to take care of your facial aesthetics too! Look and feel your best this summer with injectable fillers for your lips, cheeks, and nasolabial folds – also known as laugh or smile lines – done by Dr. Wendel’s team of experts.
