Experts say the UV index warnings are “high” to “extreme” this time of year. That means protection against sun damage is a must! If you need to be outside during midday hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., take steps to reduce sun exposure. A shirt, hat and sunscreen are a must, and be sure you seek shade. Beachgoers should know that white sand and other bright surfaces reflect UV and can double UV exposure.
The Piazza Center, Central Texas’ premiere plastic surgery and skin care center in Austin, now carries one of the strongest sunscreens around – and it’s only $16! Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen was developed to protect against one of the most intense UV environments in the world. Tested according to Australian Standards, Blue Lizard maintains its extreme water resistance after 240 minutes in whirlpool water. Meanwhile, the FDA requires testing for 80 minutes in still water. Blue Lizard formulas offer 30 times your skin’s natural against UVB rays. It’s three times more water resistant than most other sunscreens – that’s important when you’re splashing around, cooling yourself off in our Texas heat! Contact us now or call us at (512) 288-8200.
