Gone are the days of carefree sun exposure. As summer approaches, it’s crucial to put together a sun safety plan regardless of your age, gender, ethnicity or skin type. The American Cancer Society recently revealed that the number of diagnosed skin cancer cases have been increasing significantly in recent years—more than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed annually. Sadly, skin cancer is on the rise and now the most common cancer, more common than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer combined. The stats are alarming but one thing is certain, we have the power and resources to protect ourselves from sun damage.
Last week we published a list of Top Rated Sunscreens for the Entire Family based on EWG’s ratings, Amazon.com reviews, mom testing, and my personal favorites. To help combat the damaging effects the sun may have on your skin this summer and keep your complexion fresh year-round, it’s important to use beauty products with SPF and powerful antioxidants. They not only prevent future wrinkles and brown spots from forming but can help reverse some of the sun’s aftermath.
