According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is America’s most common cancer, with over 5 million cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Fortunately, skin cancer is also the most preventable cancer, so this is your reminder to wear sunscreen every day! No matter the season or occasion, sunscreen is a must in your daily skin care routine.

Looking for an everyday sunscreen that’s appropriate for all skin types? One of our favorites at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery is SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair. With 34 SPF, this revolutionary superscreen product goes beyond UV protection to defend against harmful infrared rays while supporting the skin’s ability to restore itself.

This May, protect yourself and your skin at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery! Our experts can give you recommendations for the best skincare products for you, including the best sunscreen. For even more personalized recommendations, consider a VISIA Skin Analysis. The VISIA gives you a percentile score and rank of your Estimated Skin Age based on the amount of sun damage and skin changes you have compared to other people of the same age, gender, and skin type. Your VISIA Skin Analysis results can help us select the best treatments, skin care regimen, and skin care products, customized and individualized to treat your skin based on your report results and how you would like to improve your skin.
