RealSelf: 7 Commonly Neglected Places for Sunscreen and How Doctors Recommend Protecting Them

Bluestone Sunshields: The Innovative Solution Featured in Reaself

In the battle against the sun's harmful rays, sunscreen has long been our steadfast ally. Yet, even with our diligent efforts to protect our skin, there are commonly neglected areas where the sun can still wreak havoc.

Fortunately, doctors are stepping in to shed light on these overlooked spots and recommend effective ways to shield them. In a recent article by Reaself titled "7 Commonly Neglected Places for Sunscreen and How Doctors Recommend Protecting Them," one innovative solution stood out: Bluestone Sunshields.

Bluestone Sunshields, a pioneering product in sun protection, caught the attention of dermatologists and skincare experts alike for its unique approach to addressing sun exposure in often-forgotten areas. The Reaself article highlighted the importance of protecting areas such as the scalp, lips, ears, and even the tops of the feet – places where traditional sunscreen application may fall short.

So, what sets Bluestone Sunshields apart? Unlike traditional sunscreens that can be messy, difficult to apply, or simply not suitable for certain areas, Bluestone Sunshields offer a convenient and effective solution. These lightweight, shields are designed to protect areas often left exposed, providing a barrier against harmful UV rays without the need for constant reapplication.

One of the key features of Bluestone Sunshields is their versatility. Whether you're spending a day at the beach, hiking in the mountains, or simply running errands around town, these shields can be easily applied to areas where sunscreen may not provide adequate coverage. Plus, their transparent design ensures discreet protection, allowing you to go about your day with confidence.

The Reaself article emphasized the importance of protecting all exposed areas of the skin, not just the ones that are easily visible. By shining a spotlight on commonly neglected spots and recommending innovative solutions like Bluestone Sunshields, doctors are helping to raise awareness about comprehensive sun protection.

In addition to their practicality and effectiveness, Bluestone Sunshields are also dermatologist-approved, ensuring that they meet the highest standards of safety and efficacy. With more people becoming aware of the importance of sun protection beyond just slathering on sunscreen, products like Bluestone Sunshields are poised to become essential items in everyone's skincare arsenal.

“Protecting the face requires protecting the whole face,” agrees Dr. Heidi Waldorf, a board-certified dermatologist in Nanuet, New York. In addition to sunscreen, mechanical protection, such as wearing sunglasses and/or a hat, is especially key. “The sun is not only bad for the skin around your eyes, it’s also bad for the eyes themselves,” says Dr. Kossler. “It can accelerate cataracts, it can affect the retina and it can cause growths on the conjunctiva—so sunglasses are great for protecting the eyelid skin, but they’re also great for protecting the eye.” Dr. Waldorf warns patients that although they may think a visor of baseball hat is protection enough, “Full-face protection requires a hat with a three- to four-inch brim, an extra-wide visor [like this one from Coolibar] or the newest thing in sun protection, a Bluestone Sunshields. ”
