BATON ROUGE - A local doctor suggests sunscreen as the most important part of daily skin care routine.

According to dermatologist Dr. Z, the sun causes 80% of the skin's aging. Sunscreen helps stop that aging and fight off the sun's ultraviolet rays, which also cause skin cancer.

Dr. Z also recommended using a Vitamin C antioxidant lotion each morning and tretinoin cream each night.

She said she's seeing a lot of patients come through with sunburns after going to the beach for end-of-summer vacations, some even with second-degree burns which are burns with blisters.

Dr. Z says to follow the "ABCs" to quickly bounce back from a sunburn:

  • Aspirin - Or other anti-inflammatories right after getting home to help reduce damage to cells 
  • Baths - A cool bath like an oatmeal bath to soothe the skin
  • Cortisones - An over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream applied soon after the burn, as long as it doesn't have any alcohol which dries out the skin
