A Youthful Surface Starts With Your Skincare

Loving the skin you’re in doesn’t just mean embracing your quirks and unique attributes. It also means taking care of the body that you have. Using preventative methods, such as sunscreen, to limit sun exposure is one way to up your skin health game.

 

Though many of us boast that we turn golden brown after our ritualistic first “burn” of the summer, we should be running to the dermatologist instead of the beach.

 

In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology one in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their life. The study also indicates that skin cancer is also the most common form of cancer in the United States.

 

Even more troubling is that melanoma has increased by 6.1 percent in women under 44 years of age. A golden glow may seem like the ideal summer fashion statement, but the immediate reward doesn’t really outweigh the huge risk you’re taking when you enable your skin to become a victim of the sun.

 

By using a broad spectrum sunscreen, like the oil free K-Defense, daily, you easily can cut your risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, in half. As an added bonus to extending your life, adding sunscreen to your daily routine will also keep your age on lockdown!
