Whether you tan easy in the sun or you burn fast, you SHOULDN’T be outdoor or bed tanning! We know you’ve heard this time and time again about the dangers of the sun, but that summer bronze color can be addicting. Magnolia Dermatology has the answer a beautiful tan the safe way with self-tanners all the while, saving yourself from effects of sun damage which includes skin cancer.
My favorite self-tanner is FakeBake Flawless. It’s quick, easy, and I can do it right at home! Check out my self-tanning tips below to achieve a safe bronzey glow!

Baby oil, iodine, foil shields, or perching on top of a black shingled roof to lay out…all of this in an attempt to soak up as much sun as the skin could absorb, and most of the time it was too much.

Skin Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. One in five people are diagnosed with skin cancer, and these statistics are also climbing due to the increased ultraviolet exposure from the sun and tanning beds.

Did the Valentine “Love” Season bring an engagement for you or someone close to you? Now the planning begins…but where to start? So many brides begin with the dress or the venue, but the most important thing is forgotten… YOUR SKIN!
Brides have a tendency to wait until the last moment to worry about their skin, and by this time it could be too late. It is easy to forget about the events prior to the big day like Bridal Portraits, Engagement Parties, and Showers. If only the bride had started early, their skin would be radiant for all the fun times that come with the big day.
Much of skin care is trial and error, or requires multiple treatments to achieve the desired look. We at Magnolia Dermatology want to extend to all of our Brides a list of skin care suggestions for after you say “YES!”

Here are several tips we recommend:
Use a humidifier at night in your bedroom – this will help your skin and hair.
After bathing, apply body oil, lotion or cream to your damp skin to help seal in moisture. Keep your showers and baths brief with warm water.
Use lip and hand cream regularly
Use a facial moisturizer, choose one best for your skin type
If you are extra dry, use a hydrating serum under your moisturizer for added boost of hydration
