Sunscreen: A Hot Topic

On my social media channels, you guys asked about the safety of chemicals in sunscreen, why certain sunscreens make you look like a ghost, what’s the best type of sunscreen for kids, and how often you should reapply!

In this video, I will answer your questions and more!

To start, I explain the difference between chemical blockers and physical or mineral blockers.

Next, I share which sunscreen choices I make for myself and for my 5 year old daughter who is a fair skinned redhead and therefore, burns easily. As a dermatologist mom, I want to give my daughter the most safe and effective options for sun protection and I love sharing this information with you and your family!

Finally, I share my five key tips about sun protection.
