Q: What does the SPF in sunscreen really mean?
A: The SPF in sunscreen stands for Sun Protection Factor and is a measurement of how well your skin will be protected from UVB rays ranging from 1- 45+, better known as the contributor to sunburns, skin damage and even skin cancer. Sunscreen with SPF15 allows you to stay in the sun 15 times longer than without protection at all. The higher the SPF, the higher percentage of UVB rays you’re blocking.
I recommend a few things:
- Choose a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
- At minimum, use SPF15 to ensure protection.
- Be sure to reapply sunscreen at least every two hours while exposing your skin to the sun.
- Always keep your eye out for new moles. Don’t forget I’m always happy to check any suspicious spotting or bumps that may appear.
I’ve been using Dr. Diggs’ cosmetic line since it was developed. I’ve learned that I simply cannot live without the Dermal Antioxidant Therapy or the CosmedicDerm Rejuvenating Eye Cream. As soon as I ran out of the cream, the dark circles under my eyes returned! Her products work immediately.

Dr. Diggs is a wonderful doctor! I was very insecure because of my acne; Dr. Diggs is very caring and courteous, Shortly after becoming a regular patient of hers, my acne began to clear up with minimal side effects. EVERYTIME I go, Dr. Diggs is so happy, cheerful, which is uplifting especially being a insecure teen who “used” to suffer from acne!
She has to be one of the top rated doctors in the country. She offers full services for her patients as a dermatologist. Her services range from acne challenges experienced by teenagers, to cosmetic concerns of baby boomers. I have just relocated away from the Michgian area and now understand what makes her so exceptional. I just discovered I have a skin cancer and will be consulting with Dr. Diggs before I do anything with the doctors here. I cannot imagine a better doctor.
