Avoid Skin Cancer
« on: June 14, 2007, 11:24:29 PM »
(iVillage Total Health) - Dermatologists, cancer experts and public health officials are urging Americans to practice sun safety during the upcoming summer months of sunshine and outdoor activities. New studies and precautions have been announced in observance of Sun Safety Week, from June 3-9.

Among the safety precautions recommended by the American Cancer Society (ACS): wearing hats, long sleeves and pants, using sunscreen and avoiding the outdoors during hours when the sun is most intense (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.).

New research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham suggests that drinking green tea may help sun worshippers avoid skin cancer. A study published in the May issue of the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry found that plant chemicals in green tea may aid in inhibiting tumor growth.

"Green tea prevents UV radiation induced suppression of the immune system, which has been considered a risk factor for the development of skin cancer," Santosh Katiyar, the lead Alabama researcher, said in a press release.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Despite warnings about the harmful effects of the sun, more than 1 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer occur each year, according to the ACS. The deadliest form of skin cancer - melanoma - is strongly associated with excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV), which can come from sunlight or tanning booths and beds. The ACS estimates that 59,940 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed and more than 8,000 people will die from melanoma in 2007.

Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, the ACS's deputy chief medical officer, said a new report on adolescent and teen sunburns showed that much work is still needed to prevent early sun exposure.

"Despite evidence that excessive sun exposure in childhood contributes to the risk of skin cancers later in life, our study reveals that sunburns remain common among adolescents," Lichtenfeld said in a radio interview. "Further, most teens still view a tan as not only a good look, but also a sign of good health."

To further the message of staying safe in the sun, the ACS is again promoting its Slip! Slop! Slap! campaign. It reminds people to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on hat when going outdoors. Using sunglasses to protect the eyes is also recommended.

People who want to minimize their risk of skin cancer can do so by following these skin care recommendations:

    * Beware of sores that are not healing. People may think a sore or pimple is persistent, but it may be more serious and possibly an early form of skin cancer.

    * Monitor your moles. Melanoma usually develops in a pre-existing mole. Closely monitoring moles for changes in size, shape, color and number can help. If any change is noted, a physician should be consulted immediately.

    * Be cautious of bleeding and scabbing. Any area of the skin that is bleeding, scabbing or releasing fluids is extremely dangerous and a physician should be consulted immediately.

    * Monitor exposure to the sun. The more sun exposure, the greater risk of skin cancer. People who work outside or individuals who live in tropical climates must understand they are not immune to the sun and that the application of sunscreen is vital throughout the year. The sun is just as damaging to the skin during the winter months as it is in the summer months.

    * Know your genes. If there is a history of skin cancer in your family and you have light hair and light eyes, you are at a greater risk for skin cancer and should always protect yourself with sunscreen.

here's some tips:

Toss last year's sunscreen: The shelf life isn't the best when it comes to sunscreen because of the ingredients (minerals, moisturizers, etc.) So nix your old stuff and go and buy some new product, then add it to your daily summer beauty routine (put it on right after getting out of the shower). It's better to spend a few extra dollars than risk getting a burn by using the year-old sunscreen. Also, because of the ingredients, you skin could have a different reaction than it did before.

Determine your SPF level: Each year it seems, there is a new higher SPF, and many think you should automatically go higher. This is no necessarily the case -- although generally the higher the better. First determine your skin type. Are you fair and burn easily? Then you need to choose a higher SPF (think SPF 45 and up). Are you medium toned and tan but rarely burn? Then you should be looking at at least mid-ranged SPFs (30 - 45). Dark skinned? You naturally have an SPF of 4 because of the pigmentation in your skin, but that doesn't mean you should skimp on the SPF in your sunscreen. People with dark skin should choose at least an SPF of 15 - 30. No matter what your skin type or if you burn easily or not, you should never go without a minimum of SPF 15.

Check the ingredients: The most important ingredient to look for in your sunscreen is Zinc. Zinc is what actually absorbs the sun's rays before it goes into your skin, keeping the damaging UVA and UVB rays at bay. The Zinc provides an invisible barrier between the sun and your skin. Micronized Zinc is relatively new and since the Zinc particles are very fine, the lotion will go on smoother and minus the white streaky residue.

The price factor: Price generally doesn't play a part when it comes to sunscreen. As long as it has your required SPF and Zinc. Name brand versus non-name brand doesn't have its advantages here. But, if you find a brand you like (perhaps it's fragrance-free, oil-free, or has extra moisturizers such as Aloe) stick to it.

Face versus body: Many people buy two sunscreens: one for the face and one for the body. These days it doesn't make too much of a difference, you just need to know your skin type for your face. If you tend to be a little on the oily side, opt for an oil-free sunscreen that is more like a lotion than a thick cream (Coppertone makes a great one called Spectra3, that is oil-free, fragrance-free, and has moisturizers). If you have dry skin, look for one with added moisturizers like Aloe (many children's varieties have Aloe), so you can have an all-in-one sunscreen. On the other hand there are so many sunscreens for the face that have both high SPF levels and moisturizers. Find one with a tint and you have taken care of three steps in your beauty routine.

Remember: 90 % of all skin cancers are preventable, so slather on the sunscreen and contact your doctor if you see and discolouration or unusual spots.

The same ways you can avoid transportation while driving a car or avoid gravity when you jump out a window. Though there are slight differences in response to UVA and UVB radiation, the bottom line is that tanning is unhealthy and always increases your cancer risk.
