Get Frequent Gel Manicures? Then Better Put On Sunscreen First

Gel manicures......They don't chip easily and seem to last twice as long.

What's not to LOVE?

We've heard about the possible skin cancer link before......well, the talk is surfacing once again.

GMA talked about gel manicure safety recently.

And we were surprised by what TV dermatologist, Dr. Whitney Bowe revealed.

She claims that "regular gel manicures speed up the aging process," because your hands are going under the UV or LED lamps to set the polish.

Her advice?

If you're going to get frequent gel manicures, then apply sunscreen to your hands about 15 minutes BEFORE getting the manicure.

Dr. Bowe  likes this sunscreen by LaRoche-Posay, Anthelios 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Milk ($35.99, at ULTA).
