Dr. Ileana Perez-Quintairos, Dermatologist at Baptist Health South Florida affirms daily sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 30 is highly recommended for daily use.

The specialist also explains for prolonged exposure it is convenient to use a higher SPF, which provides a high coverage for less damage to the cells. It’s important to choose the best sunscreen according to the patient’s skin.

Sunscreens can be used in spray or lotion and have to be rubbed in to get a color, she says.
