Dr. Waller shares summer skin safety tips on air with WDAM
In a recent interview with WDAM, William L. Waller, III, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist at Hattiesburg Clinic Dermatology – South, debunked several of the common myths about sunscreen and sun protection and provided viewers with a dermatologist-approved guide to summer skin care.
“The first thing you want to look for is an SPF of 30 or higher,” Dr. Waller said. “An SPF of 30 actually protects you from about 97% of the UV harmful rays. It doesn’t last forever so you must reapply after about two hours or sooner if you’re getting wet, sweating, or towel drying. The second thing you want to look for…it needs to say broad spectrum. SPF only tells you what it protects against UVB rays, and you also need a broad spectrum to protect you against UVA.”
