Sun Protection

It’s smoldering hot here in the Philippines and the perfect time to post about sun protection is yes right now πŸ™‚Β 

 

I’ve read many medical articles emphasizing the need for sun protection and prompted by increasing cases of various skin conditions particularly skin cancer. Though Filipinos are mostly melanin-rich and brown colored skin, that doesn’t mean we can skip slathering our exposed bodies with sun creams. In my case, I have a lot of skin issues going on, allergies, skin asthma, etc. and with my fair/medium skin – sun protection is a must!Β 

So we often hear SPF –Β What is SPF?

SPF stands for sun protection factor. The SPF number tells you how well the product will protect you from UVB, the burning rays of the sun. (Most sunscreens also absorb ultraviolet “A” rays, or UVA.) The higher the SPF number, the greater the amount of protection. Everyone should use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. If you have had a skin cancer or precancer, you should use a sunscreen with an even higher SPF.

Studies showed that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes, pretty scary right? It was mentioned in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and featured in their blog – “sun-safety”. Β As UV rays account for 80% of skin ageing. That includes, wrinkles, sun spots or skin pigmentation. Besides, who likes to have premature wrinkles? I don’t πŸ˜‰Β 

Maybe I’ve already convinced you enough and please always remember “prevention is better than cure. “
