Doctors debunk 12 myths about sunscreen, sunburns, and tanning

Dermatologists Jeremy Brauer and Michelle Henry debunk 12 myths about sunscreen and sun care. They talk about the effects of getting sunburned, whether getting a base tan will protect you, and what to look for in sunscreen. They also explain that protecting your skin from the sun is a comprehensive plan — it requires a combination of sunscreen, shade structures, SPF clothing, hats, and sunglasses. Brauer is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon at Spectrum Skin and Laser. He sees patients with skin cancers, general medical dermatology concerns, and cosmetic concerns.
