May is skin cancer awareness month. With over 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year, skin cancer is America’s most common cancer. About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 85 percent of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
Many of us may think, “I don’t get sunburns, so I won’t get skin cancer.” Skin cancer is a sneaky and dangerous cancer. Ultraviolet rays from the sun damage our cells and replicate mutated DNA that can ultimately change into cancer cells. Skin cancer manifests on the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, in growths, lesions, and pigmented skin. Skin cancer can present itself in places that have never even had exposure to the sun!
Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Shading yourself from the sun, wearing protective clothing including hats and sunglasses, and wearing SPF every single day are some of the easiest ways to prevent skin cancer.
Sun Protection Glossary:
SPF – Sun Protection Factor – The number tells you how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to redden your skin when using a particular sunscreen compared with the amount of time without sunscreen. So if you use an SPF 15 product exactly as directed (applied generously and evenly, and reapplied after two hours or after sweating or swimming), it would take you 15 times longer to burn than if you weren’t wearing sunscreen.
Broad spectrum – indicates that the sunscreen contains ingredients that effectively protect against UVA rays as well as UVB.
Skin Ceuticals daily sunscreen provides effective protection from photoaging. Skin Ceuticals sunscreen products provide a high level of broad spectrum sun protection with chemical-free UV filters. Available in a variety of formulations suitable for daily use, SkinCeuticals has sunscreens for all skin types and for all desires such as mineral and tinted sunscreens.
