Sun care tips for your clients

July 10, 2011 | 10:17 AM
Whether you’re a hairdresser, esthetician or massage tech, recommending products is key to your professionalism as well as your income—and, could be your client’s first line of defense against sun damage.

Dr. Ahmed Abdulla, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Lexli skin care, provides these sun care tips you can pass onto your clients:
-- The difference between SPF 15 and SPF 100 is only 4 percent added protection. Pay less attention to the SPF and more attention to proper application. Sunscreen should be applied 15 minutes before venturing outdoors.
-- Clients recently treated by dermabrasion, laser resurfacing or chemical peels are at increased risk of burn or skin damage following sun exposure. Sunscreen for these individuals must be consistent.
-- Increased humidity makes skin feel less dry, but don’t be fooled. Use of a moisturizer is required even in the summer.
