Stay Healthy in the Sun

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States with more than 3.5 million skin cancers diagnosed every year in more than two million patients. It’s estimated that one in every five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime, and about 90% of the non-melanoma skin cancers are because of exposure to UV rays from sunlight.

Exposure to the sun isn’t just a potential cause for cancer, though; it can also cause premature aging and dry skin. If you’re constantly exposing your skin to harsh sunlight, you could be doing long-term damage; when you tan or burn, it causes damage to the skin cells. Over time this can weaken your overall skin health and cause the early appearance of wrinkles.

A good sunscreen or sun block can help protect the skin from damage done by the sun, but only if you use it regularly and at the right time. If you know you’re going to be out in the sun on a daily basis it may be best to get a combination moisturizer and sunscreen product so you can save time by applying one cream every day.
