A WOMAN who works as a dermatology medical scribe revealed what her office recommends for a morning skin routine.
She said it’s a simple two-step process.
Tyler, who shared the tip to her nearly 20,000 followers on TikTok, revealed that the dermatologists at her office tell their patients they only need a cleanser and an SPF facial moisturizer to start their day.
In the comment section, she noted the SPF should be at least 30.
However, her simple tip caused mixed reactions.
“I love the sympathy of this approach,” one viewer commented.
“No need for a 10-step routine.”
However, others expressed their concern that the routine is far too simple.
“Wrong,” one person bluntly wrote.
“The SPF in moisturizers is not enough to protect your skin from the sun.”
However, Tyler responded that as long as you’re reapplying and the moisturizer is at least 30 SPF, her dermatologists say skin will be protected.
According to a poll conducted on behalf of CeraVe, Americans do not take sunscreen seriously.
The poll found that a quarter of those surveyed admitted to forgetting to apply sunscreen in the summer.
Even more, almost 60 percent of respondents don’t ever bother to put on sunscreen – and not because they simply forget.
Dr. Simran Deo at Online Doctor, Zava, previously stressed to MailOnline the negative effects sun can have on skin.
"The harsh UVA, UVB, and UVR rays of the sun can lead to early signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines, areas of hyperpigmentation such as lentigo or deeper pigmentation known as melasma,” she said.
"It can result in damage of the skin cells leading to skin cancer and pre-cancerous changes, as well as having an effect on your immunity.”
