Have Your “Fun in the Sun!”

But play it safe with broad-spectrum sunscreen

 

 

Summer is in full swing, and for most people that means spending extended time in the bright sunshine.

 

“Everyone knows the sun is essential to good health and contributes to a sense of well-being,” EltaMD Skin Care Brand Manager Carol Bocell states. “But when you’re having fun, it’s easy to forget that unprotected sun exposure can cause premature skin aging and skin cancer.”

People of all skin tones can get skin cancer,” she went on to say. “But some groups may be at a higher risk. Ms. Bocell pointed to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention in 2014. The study indicates the increased risk for Caucasian women who suffer five (or more) blistering sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20; they have an 80% higher chance of contracting melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.

 

In addition, UVA rays can age skin cells and damage DNA. These rays are linked to long-term skin damage, such as wrinkles, but they are also thought to play a role in some skin cancers, according to the American Cancer Society.

 

The daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by exposure to the sun when used with other sun protection measures, advises the Federal Drug Administration. 

 

According to Ms. Bocell, EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens are widely recommended by dermatologists and other physicians. “Physicians who dispense EltaMD sunscreens trust these cosmetically elegant, zinc-based formulas to protect skin against UVA and UVB rays,” she said. 

 

“With EltaMD transparent zinc-based sunscreens, unlike a majority of other sunscreen products out there on the market, there’s no white ‘blob’ visible on the nose and wearers don’t have to go through the day smelling like fruity cocktails.” EltaMD sunscreens are fragrance-free, sensitivity-free, paraben-free and non-comedogenic.

 

Whether you’re spending a week at the beach or just a few minutes in your own backyard, lather on the EltaMD sunscreen. “Apply two tablespoons of a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body,” she states. “Be sure to reapply according to directions and follow the sun-safety tips provided on the sunscreen packaging.”
