Sun Safety Tips for Golfers

DMG Dermatology

While many people remember to care for their skin at the pool or beach, it is important to remember to take precautions to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while enjoying other outdoor activities as well. Golfers are especially prone to sun damage and risk developing skin cancers due to prolonged sun exposure while hitting the links.

Dry Skin Management

DMG Dermatology

Dry skin affects millions of people, especially during the cold, winter months. Dry skin can be uncomfortable, causing your skin to feel tight and painful and extremely itchy. For many, dry skin is simply caused by harsh soaps, itchy clothing, misusing moisturizers, a lack of using moisturizers, certain medications and medical conditions, and even just by taking long, hot showers.

Get Rid of Dry, Cracked Lips

DMG Dermatology

Cracked, dry lips can be caused by a variety of conditions and can be both unsightly and painful. While lips are skin, unlike most of your skin, the lips do not produce natural oils to protect and hydrate. If you suffer from dry or cracked lips, we can help you understand and correct the problem.
