Doctor offers advice for protecting skin during summer


As we enjoy summer in Michigan, it’s important to remember to stay safe and healthy.

Dr. Wendy Sadoff is a dermatologist with Corewell Health. She encourages people to get a little more finesse using sunscreen.

The sunscreen, that’s great for our body,” Sadoff said. “It’s inexpensive and we can apply it very heavily to get the adequate protection. And then one that’s maybe a little lighter weight that feels good on our skin. Maybe a stick sunscreen for the back of your neck, or something for the lips.”

Everyone’s also reminded to stay hydrated, drinking about 4 ounces of water every 15 minutes.

Health professionals in Michigan warn never to leave children or pets alone in a car, even with windows open. Temperatures can quickly reach dangerous levels inside the vehicle.
