Blog: Spring is Sunburn Season

After such a cold and isolating season with limited travel, social distancing, and quarantine times, this hint of warmer weather lately from Mother Nature gives us a boost of positivity. As if the breeze whispers, “Brighter times are on their way!” We can’t wait to play in the sun again and socialize with our friends and family.

Warming weather means safer opportunities to connect with our loved one’s outdoors. Soon we can enjoy picnics and lounging by the pool. As we kick off the first days of March, where everyone dreams of basking in the sun this summer, beach towels, bug spray, and flip-flops won’t be the first things you’ll need.

Before you pack your beach bag, we urge you to grab your sunscreen first, and put it at the top of your list of must haves! We emerge from winter with baby tender skin, and it’s crucial to protect it from damaging sun rays. It is natural to want to find a sunny spot to soak it all in. And we encourage you to do so – just safely!!

We love to help you with our unique selection of sunscreens here at Harpe Laser + Wellness. Sun protection is one of the most important tools of preserving the health of your skin. Wearing the right sunscreen daily, even indoors, protects you not only from uncomfortable sunburn but also skin cancer and premature aging.

It is important for you to wear sunscreen even if you’re not outside exposed to the elements. Take into consideration the light coming through your windows and glass in your automobiles. We’ve all seen the picture floating around on the internet of the truck driver whose left side of his face shows more sagging leathery skin, wrinkles, and brown spots.

It’s not just the sun anymore. Research shows the blue light from computers and cellphones age us and damage our skin. We carry amazing products, especially for this type of exposure.

We have gone the extra mile to research a wide variety with our doctors and aestheticians to accommodate all the concerns for all lifestyles and skin types. Whether you’re wanting a sunscreen stick to keep in your golf bag requiring no touching of hands to apply it, or a compact style offering coverage with incredible skin tone matching, it’s available here – just ask. From tinted to clear without clogging your pores — we carefully curated our sunscreen selection by the best.

Sunscreen and the ocean go hand-in-hand. As avid nature lovers, we recognize the damage of coral reefs by certain chemicals in sunscreens, even at extremely low concentrations, is one of our top concerns. You can rest assured our commitment to reef-safe products, and we make certain only the safe ones make the cut.

Go find your happy place in the sun!
