The diagnosis of skin cancer literally changed my life…………..
Posted: May 03 2017
May brings Skin Cancer Awareness to the forefront. As many of you know I am a skin cancer survivor and a makeup artist. I often get on a soapbox when it comes to talking about sun damage, and the importance of using sunscreens.
The fact is, prolonged sun exposure can cause skin cancer and research continually points to the fact that zinc oxide and titanium dioxide – nature’s mineral sun screens found in COLORFLO, are the safest options for broad spectrum UVA & UVB sun protection.
Physical sunscreens i.e. zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, absorb, scatter and reflect the sun’s rays, therefore blocking the UVA and UVB rays from the skin itself- like pulling a shade down.
Chemical sunscreens create a chemical reaction between the sun and skin, changing the UV rays into heat. They do not actually block out the sun. In addition, many women, including me, are allergic to chemical sunscreens, so buyer beware.
As if preventing skin cancer isn’t reason enough to consider wearing sun protection every day, know that the sun is also the #1 contributor to premature aging of the skin. The UVA rays that tan you are also the primary ones that cause lines, wrinkles and brown spots on the skin. The UVB rays cause sunburns and are the primary cancer causing rays.
To put this into perspective, an estimated 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun. In addition, over the past three decades, more people have had some form of skin cancer than all other cancers combined.
