Every 67 minutes, someone dies from skin cancer.! Someday it will be someone close to you. With early detection, most of these deaths can be prevented.
Protect your skin every day. Winter months especially. The snow is very reflective...bouncing as much as 30% more rays back onto your skin. Make sure to apply an SPF 30 to all exposed skin. One of the most neglected areas are the ears. Children, men, and women with short hair should apply sun protection every day to this thin skinned area.
UVA = the rays that penetrate without burning, they cause damage to the dermis, thus 'A' is for Aging.
UVB= the rays that cause more immediate damage, thus 'B' for burning.
Tanning beds. Let's keep this simple. I call them 'cancer beds'. Do not lay in tanning beds. After years of being in the skin care field, I can find very little exception for needing to lay in a tanning bed. They have more UVA!
Mineral Makeup when blended properly on the skin also gives additional sun protection. Dermal Dimensions offers several forms of mineral makeup for your beauty and protection.
