Mayo Clinic dermatologist Dr. Dawn Davis says the sun can cause a variety of reactions when it comes in contact with your skin. Some skin conditions prompted by sun exposure are rare; yet, others happen frequently, especially in summer.
This time of year, many of us head outside to enjoy the sunshine. Now, we all know it's important to wear sunscreen to prevent sunburn, which is linked to skin cancer. But Davis says there are other issues that can happen from being in the sun that you might not know about.

Dermatologists agree that incidences of black henna reactions are on the rise. Out of the 288 dermatologists who took part in the recent Skin Health Alliance 2017 Dermatologist Survey, 72 percent thought the incidence of patients with a reaction to black henna temporary tattoos is increasing year on year.
Despite our best attempts to protect our skin from the sun’s rays, sometimes sunburns happen.
Take sunburns seriously as they can lead to premature skin aging, and bad sunburns can eventually cause skin cancer. There’s not much dermatologists can do to speed up the healing of a sunburn, said Dr. Dee Anna Glaser, professor at the department of dermatology at St. Louis University, but there are products to treat the symptoms and help protect the new skin that’s forming.

Despite all we hear about the sun's damaging and aging effects on our skin, I love basking in its warm rays and feeling its instant energizing lift. Though dermatologists extol the negatives, many researcher studies are now underscoring the healing effect of sunlight on the muscles. It's not just vitamin D — which is well established as extremely beneficial — but the effects of red and near infrared light, too. They’ve been shown to help improve cellular function, fight inflammation, and heal damaged tissues.

Top plastic surgeons are warning fans of our $1 billion cosmetic surgery industry about the risk of blindness from injectable fillers.
In a world where cosmetic injections are as common as getting a manicure or an eyebrow wax, there is concern our growing complacency about their potential danger has caused a jump in the number of damaging procedures.

People spend a lot of money to dye the grays away — analysts estimate 29 billion will be spent worldwide by 2019. However, an unexpected side effect of a cancer treatment might help scientists develop a new method of restoring hair color without dyes. Researchers in Spain found that patients undergoing immunotherapy treatment for lung cancer also experienced hair darkening, reports The Guardian.
As annoying as it is to rely on any hair removal method to get rid of unwanted hair on your legs or bikini line, we're pretty lucky to be living in a time when the world of hair removal methods is our oyster. There are so many methods from which to choose — including shaving, waxing, and even permanent laser hair removal. And, for the most part, the ideal method is the one that suits your lifestyle, budget, and ability to withstand a little pain — but there's one hair removal product that many dermatologists agree should be avoided.

There are two types of light therapy — blue light and red light — which are sometimes combined in certain treatments. Both kinds of light are useful in treating and preventing mild to moderate acne, though blue light is more helpful in destroying bacteria.
