Protect Your Skin Like a Dermatologist!

July 11, 2012 drdarria 0 Comments

Who doesn’t love to play with the newest beauty products?!? Now, what if they were also vetted by a top dermatologist for your best sun protection?  For our episode this week, we had the best of both –I had Dr Joseph Merola (click on the link to contact him), a dermatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital come on as a guest.  We discussed the new FDA sunscreen labeling guidelines, how to protect yourself from skin cancer, and some of his favorite sun protection products (see the links below the video clips for where to find the products we mention).

Enjoy and Happy Summer!!!


  1. Use the correct sunscreen, apply generously, and reapply often
  2. Dont forget the potential added benefit of sun-blocking clothing (some can be bought with protection built-in like Coolibar, others can be protected with UV Protective Detergent)
  3. “Get your birthday suit checked on your birthday”, as the American Academy of Dermatology advises
