Superhero of skin care Renata Block – SUPER DERM GIRL physician assistant, educator of the skin, and certified melanoma educator talks here about skin care protection on my WGN Plus Podcast, Steve Dale’s Other World.
Block discusses when to use sun block and when you may not need it. For example, UV radiation occurs even when it’s cloudy outside.
She says titanium or zinc oxide are the best ideas for our skin.
She also explains the difference between UVA and UVB rays. It’s an interesting topic, and important to know regarding protection.
Don’t believe in global warming? Changes in the ozone are indeed responsible, so experts think, for increased skin cancers (though there are also other explanations). 90 percent of skin cancers come from indoor and/or outdoor tanning.
Block, who is at Pinski Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, says she’s a botox lover, and she explains why.
I hesitate to bring it up—it’s a word you can’t say on the radio, exfoliation! I think it’s safe to say when you exfoliate with a cleanser, don’t use Comet.
Renata’s YouTube videos are super—of course, she’s a super hero!
