UV Safety Month: A reminder to keep skin healthy, youthful

There is no time like the present to slather on that sunscreen. July is a natural fit for UV Safety Month. Your dermatology team wants you to have the happiest, healthiest summer, and those sunny times should carry over to the rest of the year. It’s estimated up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds. Overcast days aren’t an excuse to skip your broad-spectrum protection!

Remember:

  • Ultraviolet rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer. Don’t take them lightly.
  • UV light is also responsible for premature aging. Don’t become wrinkly and spotted before your time!
  • Tanning beds and sun lamps may be artificial sources, but they are no safer than the “real thing.” In fact, Harvard researchers report fluorescent bulbs from tanning beds mostly emit UVA rays. This type of radiation is up to three times more intense than natural sunlight.
  • Pass the message on! Kids mimic your good habits. Likewise, encourage teachers, administrators, and youth and community leaders to spread the word.

We’re all in this together! Also, if it’s been awhile since your last skin check, call us.

Sun Damaged Skin

None of us are capable of escaping the natural aging process. As we grow older, our skin will naturally become thinner and less elastic. We will notice fine lines and wrinkles as a result of the aging process, and existing birthmarks, scars, and moles may also change with time. The aging process may be natural, but there are factors that can accelerate the aging of our skin, the primary factor being sun damage.

Many of us enjoy the outdoors. Yet time spent under the sun can mean excessive exposure to UV rays that results in, premature aging, not to mention an increased risk of skin cancer. The aging that is caused by UV exposure is referred to as photoaging. This type of aging is associated with dry, leathery skin, discoloration, rough texture, and deep wrinkles.
