Dr. James T. Schwartz

Join Dr. Schwartz on Thursday, August 10, at 4:00 p.m. in LaMesa Room to learn more about your skin’s health and how to keep your skin healthy, moisturized and looking its best while living in our desert environment!

One of the first questions a dermatologist is asked is, “Should I be worried about this spot?” The second question is, “What can I do to make my skin look better?” While both questions seem simple on the surface, skin health and rejuvenation can include several approaches. In his presentation, “Anti-Aging and Skin Cancer Awareness,” Dr. Schwartz will review:

Skin rejuvenation tips

Sunscreens – so many to choose from, what you need to look for in a sunscreen

Dry Skin Tips – Living in Tucson and what you can do for your skin in a desert climate
