Ask the Nurse

Can I use an astringent and a collagen gel before I apply my moisturizer with 25 spf? I have had one spot of skin cancer removed with MOHS technique.

It is important to cleanse, exfoliate and then use astringent if needed, and follow up with moisturizer and a broad spectrum sun screen that preferably contains meroxyl.

For anyone who has had skin cancer, periodic skin checks with a dermatologist is advisable.
