Last week SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE talked about the effects of too much sun. This week we will continue discussing too much sun and skin cancer.
Too much sun and harmful UV, or ultraviolet radiation causes skin cancer. However, over the last decade it has been discovered that UV exposure from a tanning booth or bed can be just as bad. Even too much sun during the winter can put you at risk when it comes to skin cancer.
Without a good skin care regime, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, cumulative, or too much sun exposure could cause squamous cell or basal cell skin cancer to develop. Recent studies indicate that severe sunburns that occurred before the age of 18 could contribute to melanoma development. Although less common, skin cancer can also be caused by exposure to chemicals and too much X-ray exposure.
If you do not protect your skin with all natural skin care products, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, you are at risk, and although people who have freckled or fair skin and red or blond hair are more susceptible, people who have dark hair and dark hair are also at risk when it comes to skin cancer.
There are other risks aside from your complexion including a family or personal history. If you live in a sunny climate or have a job outdoors, you may also be prone to skin cancer. A history of serious sunburn from too much sun or more than 30 moles that are irregularly shaped will also make you more vulnerable.
The most common skin cancer symptoms are changes to your skin. If you notice a new skin lesion, mole, or a change to an existing mole, see your doctor. If your doctor detects something abnormal, a biopsy will be performed.
Although nothing can be done to completely undo the damage from too much sun, it is never too late to start protecting yourself with a good all natural skin care line. Although your skin will change with age, continued use of the Healing Herbal Gel, Moisturizer and the other products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE will help your skin begin to repair and heal itself.
Too much sun not only ages you, but can also be downright dangerous. Order your all-natural skin care products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE today.
