Medical ~ Pre Cancerous Spots


Pre Cancerous Spots

Association with contact to the suns rays causes precancerous skin growths called solar keratoses.  Applying sunscreen every day rather than only on sunny ones makes a big difference when it comes to fighting the early signs of skin cancer.  A new study shows that daily use of sunscreen is much more effective than occasional use in preventing precancerous skin growths.  Of course, we all know that the sun (Ultraviolet Rays) is the main cause of our wrinkles.  Sun breaks down collagen and destroys the skin’s elasticity.  Also, it causes brown spots and discolors the skin.  If you take oral contraceptive or hormonal medication for menopause, you should be really careful getting brown spots under the eyes.

How to make Sunscreen a Daily Habit

We are often deceived by hazy weather or cloudy days, but the damaging UV is still getting through.  You should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you are actually at the beach or being outside.  Because it takes about 30 minutes for sunscreen to be absorbed completely into the skin and waiting this long before going out in the sun offers the best protection from the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.
