Medical Monday: Summer Skin Care

It has been a very rough nine days of the heatwave.  Penetrating temperatures above 90 degrees, stifling humidity, and searing sunshine was difficult to endure.  While most of us were concerned about finding a cool, air conditioned building… few of us were thinking about how this severe Summer weather affected the body’s largest organ… our skin.  On this Medical Monday, we talk about the dangers of not taking care of your skin this summer and what you need to do right now.
