Young women feel they need to have tan skin year round…but the truth is it may cost them their lives for not choosing to wear sunscreen.
Mallory Stahl, managing aesthetician with Candessa Surgical, tells us about a great new concept in sunscreens.
First, here’s what you need to know about ultraviolet rays.
1. UVA rays age skin, can penetrate through clouds and glass, are linked to cancer and cause long-term damage to skin cells.
2. UVB rays cause burns, can vary with weather conditions and cannot pass thru glass.
3. UVC rays are mostly absorbed by earth’s atmosphere and may not be as dangerous.
What about skin cancers among young women?
A new statistic shows that the rates of melanoma among women ages 15 to 39 have increased dramatically. The annual rate of melanoma seen in young white women has increased 50 percent in 14 years, from 9.4 cases per 100,000 in 1980 to 13.9 cases per 100,000 in 2004. And that number seems to be rising at 3%-4% each year. Here’s another scary truth: Utah ranks high in skin cancers because of the large fair-skinned population and higher altitudes where most of our cities are located so there is a lack of true broad spectrum protection
What is broad spectrum protection?
Broad spectrum protection comes with the key ingredient zinc oxide. Zinc oxide is a mineral that reflects sun’s rays and doesn’t cause reactions like chemical sunscreen ingredients can. Mineral ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide should be a part of any sunscreen product you use and insures you are protected from UVA and UVB rays
What makes IS Clinical Powder Sunscreen unique?
IS Clinical Sunscreen need only to reapplied every 2-3 hours to keep you protected. And the great thing is that it makes reapplication easy. Just apply and reapply the powder without having to remove your make-up or mess with any greasy products. It’s also user friendly because it has a retractable brush and it comea in “tinted” and “translucent” varieties.
