We All Scream for Sunscreen

With warm weather and clear skies come more days spent outside — whether your family’s outdoor activity of choice is hiking, lying poolside or spending the day at the beach. But did you know that your skin is at risk of sun damage during any type of weather? UVA and UVB rays can affect you no matter if it is hot and sunny, cool and rainy, or even snowing. This summer, bask in the sun the safe way by protecting your skin from sunburns.

Start by stocking your summer supply kit with sunscreen. However, it’s not as easy as picking up any bottle in the sunblock aisle at your grocery store. Selecting the right product can make a large difference in your skin’s health. Here at WellNow Urgent Care, we are here to help you learn the ABCs of SPF.

If you have a painful sunburn, visit your nearest WellNow facility for treatment and guidance on how to protect your skin in the future. We are here seven days a week to help make it all better for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses.

Walk in or check in online today to your nearest WellNow location — no appointment needed and most insurance accepted.
