Dermatologists Warn Fitness Enthusiasts: Don't Let Exercise-Related Skin Problems Outweigh the Benefits of Physical Activity

sure is safe and that a tan is somehow healthy. Hopefully this new law will force health clubs to re-examine their choice about offering a disservice like indoor tanning to their patrons."

In addition, Dr. Adams offered these sun-safety tips for outdoor fitness buffs:

-- If possible, seek shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV rays are

the strongest.

-- Runners and those engaging in other outdoor sports should wear

broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher and reapply

frequently when sweating. Stash sunscreen in your pockets as a

reminder to reapply and wear dark-colored clothing which has built-in

PF, if possible. Hats should always be worn, and men should never run

with their shirts off.

-- Skiers should be aware that snow is 80 percent reflective, even in

shaded areas, and skiers are more likely to burn at higher altitudes.

"Being aware of the skin problems that can arise from indoor or outdoor exercise is a crucial first step in keeping your skin healthy and getting the most out of your workouts," said Dr. Adams. "If you have a concern about your skin, whether or not it's related to exercise, it's important to see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment."
