It’s “Skin Cancer Awareness Month” - Stay Sun Aware with These Top 4 Myths About Summertime Skin Care

Sunday, May 5, 2019

Just in time for “Skin Cancer Awareness Month” this May, leading skin expert and creator of innovative Stemology skincare line, Dr. Hal Simeroth, Ph.D., demystifies four myths about sun damage to the skin. Stemology formulates the “world’s most powerful all-natural anti-aging skincare products,” blending the latest in stem cell research and modern technology to achieve beautiful results, naturally. 

Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature skin aging, contributing to such unsightly problems as brown spots, wrinkles, and thickened skin. Damaging UVA and UVB rays, though invisible, break down skin’s collagen and elastin - essential elements for healthy renewal and repair - resulting in loose, sagging skin, or worse: skin cancer. 

Here, the top four myths about sun damage, offering tips for how best to protect skin:
  1. You won’t get skin damage if you wear sunscreen. While sunscreen helps to shield skin from burning under the sun’s most damaging UVA/ UVB rays, it does not guard against longterm damage. Furthermore, sunscreen wicks off with sweat or water, so it’s crucial to carry extra forms of sun protection, like hats, light clothing layers and UV blocking sunglasses.
  2. You have to be out in the sun for a while to get skin damage. Skin damage can start to occur in as little as 5 minutes of sun exposure. This is particularly true for those with light hair and eyes or skin that easily freckles. Limiting sun exposure, especially during peak hours (10am - 4pm), is the best way to avoid major damage.
  3. You’re only at risk for sun damage and skin cancer in the summer months. This feels true because the sun feels much less intense during the winter months. However, the dangers of UVA and UVB light exposure are every bit as a present when it’s cold outside. Make wearing sunscreen a habit all year long to protect skin and keep it healthy. 
  4. It’s safer to use a tanning bed and avoid sun exposure. The Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from a tanning bed is just as harmful as those from the sun itself. Again, always wearing sunscreen is key, whether you’re spending time outdoors or tanning indoors. Apply roughly 2 tablespoons of SPF 15 or higher sunscreen to the entire body at least 30 minutes beforehand to reduce damage.
