Lack of sunshine causes skin cancer, according to Andreas Moritz. In this video from 2009, he explains why being in the sun is actually good for you and your skin. Find out why your sunscreen is doing more harm than good. Also, you need vitamin D to prevent cancer, and sunscreen may interfere with your exposure to vitamin D from the sun. http://www.ihealthtube.com

Whenever I see a patient, and I'm determining the type of screening they need for skin cancer, this is one of the most important questions I ask. Another question I ask is the use of tanning booths. Recent studies have shown that, especially in women under the age of 40, use of tanning booths is a well-documented risk factor for skin cancer in the future. So if you have children playing on the beach or in the park, it is important to remember those sun protection tips, as avoiding a blistering sunburn now can avoid skin cancer in the future.

Lose up to 24 pounds in 6 weeks (free guide): https://www.focusfitness.net/ffyt-fat-crusher-plan This video will show you hidden causes of skin cancer 1. Sunburn Sun exposure cause damage to skin cells and increase your risk of developing skin cancer. Most severe form of skin cancer, are caused by exposure to UV radiation. 2. Tanning A tan has limited protection from sunburn. It does not protect from DNA damage, which can lead to skin cancer. This will eventually cause loss of elasticity and brown patches on your skin. 3. Solariums Exposure to sun by the use of solariums increases the risk of developing melanoma. Solariums emit UV radiation levels up to 6 times higher than the midday summer sun. 4. Skin color Melanin is a skin pigment produced by melanocytes. It has a protective effect for people with darker skin. People with albinism do not make melanin. They are at high risk of skin cancer. 5. Age and gender Skin cancer is more likely in older people than younger people. Men are more likely than women to develop skin cancer. Melanoma is diagnosed most in old people 6. Moles All adults have moles, having many moles (more than 50) increases your melanoma risk. Atypical moles are larger than a pencil eraser which is not melanoma, but they look similar. 7. Medical history If you have had skin cancer before, you are at higher risk of developing another skin cancer. Having a close blood relative with melanoma also increases your own risk of melanoma other causes of skin cancer does the sun really cause skin cancer sunlight does not cause skin cancer causes of skin cancer other than sun is skin cancer itchy identify skin cancer skin cancer dna sun exposure skin cancer

DermTV - At What Age Do You Get the Most Sun Damage [DermTV.com Epi #434]
 
02:46
In a prior DermTV episode, Dr. Schultz noted that 80% of your lifetime ultraviolet exposure and damage is done by the age of 18. Recently, a viewer responded to that claim by asking whatapos;s the point of sun protection beyond 18 if only marginal damage can occur. In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz delves into his quote and whether or not sun protection is appropriate past 18 years of age. Connect with DermTV: http://www.facebook.com/dermtv http://www.twitter.com/dermtv [TRANSCRIPT] A viewer recently asked: if 80% of your lifetime ultraviolet exposure and damage is done by the age of 18, then what's the point of ongoing sun protection as an adult. Is it just a waste of time? What do you think? It's a fact that the only way you can develop premature wrinkling and other damage of your facial skin is by unprotected sun exposure. It's also a fact that unprotected sun exposure is one of the main causes of skin cancer. And in an early DermTV episode three years ago, I mentioned that it was believed that 80-90% of your lifetime exposure to ultraviolet light occurs by the age of 18. Based on that last statement, it's very reasonable to ask what is the marginal benefit of a lifetime of effort of continuing sun protection if so much of the damage has already been done by age 18. Really... why bother with ongoing sun protection in your adult life? Well, this is a very timely question because recent research reveals very different statistics than the ones I quoted and which, from a common sense point of view, just make more sense. The new research tells us that by age 18 you've actually only accumulated about 23% of your lifetime UV exposure and damage, and by age 40, 46%, which is another 23 %. From age 40 to 60, you get 27%, and from 60 to 78 another 27% for a total of 100%. This study was based on a 78 year life span. These results make much more sense and essentially say that in the first four twenty year periods of life you accumulate almost equal amounts of UV exposure and damage. And these results are much more consistent with both common sense and the ongoing, lifetime importance of ongoing protection from damaging ultraviolet rays, whether from the sun, tanning salons or any other source. I've never told a patient not to go out in the sun, but I do tell them how to protect themselves when they're in it... by applying and appropriately reapplying sunscreen with an SPF of 15 to 30 with UVA or broad spectrum protection. As long as the sun shines, use sunscreen!

Google + for up to date info. Posted daily.  https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/1139391... DVA skin cancer management  There are many types of skin cancers including BCCs or basal cell cancers, SCC or squamous cell cancers as well as melanomas. Todays review is on Bowen disease or Intraepidermal Squamous Cell Carcinoma. This is a common non-invasive cancer of the skin affecting the epidermal layers of skin. IECs most frequently occur on sun-exposed areas and present as red, scaly and persistent patches. IECs may arise de-novo, or from lesions of solar keratosis. If left untreated, Bowen disease may progress to an invasive Squamous Cell Carcinoma. This is one of the most common skin cancers I see in DVA or Department of Defence patients in Australia, and is due to the high UV radiation we have in cities like Brisbane.  Clinical Features Bowen disease most frequently presents as a persistent red scaly patch that slow grows over time. The most commonly affect areas include the legs, arms, and face- areas of sun exposure. Bowen disease or IECs can also affect the lips, oral mucosa, or even genital areas. As Bowen Disease is asymptomatic there is often a delay in the diagnosis, as it may mimic conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, tinea, and sun-spots.  Associations Most cases of Bowen disease arise from sun-damaged skin, including areas of actinic keratosis. The most common associations include- UV radiation. This plays a major contributing factor in the development of IECs. Immunosuppression. Patients on certain immunosuppressive medications are more likely to develop IECs.  Arsenic exposure. This was a common cause of Bowen Disease in the past, as arsenic was frequently used in medicines during the 60s and 70s including Bells Asthma Mixture, sheep dip, and as pesticides. Arsenic induced IECs-Bowen disease is a rare event today, as occupational safety has increased. A time lag of 10-20 years is seen between exposure and cancer.  Human Papilloma virus infections. Other associations include genetic diseases, radiotherapy and skin lesions such as porokeratosis, and solar keratosis. Investigations Bowen’s Disease can be suspected clinically, however in the majority of cases, a biopsy should be performed to confirm the diagnosis.  Treatment  There are multiple ways to manage Bowens/IECs. Treatment modalities will depend on the location and size of the cancer, the number of lesions, the degree of functional impairment.  Each modality has both advantages and disadvantages.  Cryotherapy or liquid nitrogen  Liquid nitrogen can be an excellent method of treating IECs. Most cases will require a double –freeze cycle of cryotherapy. This treatment is not recommended for IECs below the knee, as poor healing may occur.  Creams  Imiquimod, or 5-fluorouracil are effective in the treatment of Bowen disease. Clinical studies have shown cure rates approaching 80-90%. Treatment appears to be most successful when these creams are applied for 6-16 weeks.   Curettage and Electrocautery When small patches of IECs are present they may be treated via curettage and cautery. A local anaesthetic is given prior to the procedure to prevent pain and discomfort.  Photodynamic therapy  Photodynamic therapy or PDT can be an excellent non-surgical method of treating skin cancers such as Bowen’s/ IEC’s. PDT uses  a photosensitive cream called 5-aminolevulinic acid or methyl aminolevulinate, that is applied to the skin cancer. The cancerous cells of Bowens/ IEC take up this chemical over a period of 3 hours. A low-level laser light then activates the chemical, and destroys the skin cancer cells. Patients will require two treatments spaced a week or two apart. DVA or the Department of Veteran Affairs in Brisbane, covers PDT for both sunspots on the face and also IECs on all areas. PDT can also be used for multiple or large IECs. The benefit of PDT is that it selectively targets neoplastic cells without affecting the surrounding epidermis. This results in improved cosmetic outcomes, and faster healing times.  Surgery  Surgery is the ideal method of treating IECs in certain areas including recurrent IEC or ones that dwell in hair follicles. Surgery has the highest cure rate for Bowens/ IECs. For the majority of patients, especially DVA patients in Australia, non surgical methods, including the use of photodynamic therapy, is the future. Dr Davin Lim, Dermatologist.

Study Finds Higher Levels Of Melanin May Place Young Adults At Greater Risk Of Sunburn
 
00:51
Research from the American Osteopathic Association has found young adults with higher melanin content in their skin are at an increased risk of getting a sunburn. The study found a correlation between participants reporting a red, painful sunburn lasting a day or more with people age 18 to 29 who do not self-identify as white. Approximately 5 million people are being treated for skin cancer each year, making it the most common form of cancer in the United States. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is the most prevalent form of cancer in people ages 25 to 29, and second most prevalent form for people ages 15 to 29. Researchers believe the combination of youth and melanin-rich skin gives people a false sense of security and protection against sunburns. Study results show an urgent need for more education and sunburn prevention programs aimed at young adults. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/02/27/Study-finds-young-adults-at-greater-risk-for-sunburn/2871488211998/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

No, The Sun Doesn’t Cause Skin Cancer! - How To Prevent Cancer With Sunshine
 
13:38
In this video, you'll learn why vitamin D from the sun is vital for your health and how it can prevent more cancer. Download this free e-book and learn how to boost your vitamin D levels to prevent cancer. https://goo.gl/DLWeFe Summary of video: Vitamin d benefits Vitamin D levels from sun exposure lower the risk of several diseases, such as cancer. Sun exposure helps build and maintain bone density and reduces fractures. Humans also need sunlight to control their biological clocks. Sunlight also makes you feel better. Sunlight consists of a mixture of electromagnetic radiation energy of various wavelengths. Ultraviolet, or UV, radiation, consists of UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVC never reach earth or human skin. UVA is able to penetrate deeper into the layers of your skin than UVB rays. UVB is the only form of UV radiation that stimulates the production of vitamin D. UVB rays hit the skin’s surface and creates Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is still inactive until both the liver and kidneys build 25-vitamin D.   When the sun is at its highest point in the sky, the UV levels are more intense. In the morning or afternoon, the sun’s radiation is weaker and make it harder to generate vitamin D. The sun’s radiation is most intense at the equator. Vit d deficiency There are several reasons we can become vitamin d deficient these include: Age Staying indoors Wearing too much clothes Too much clouds Polluttion Place with long winters Skin color The way to know your vitamin D level is to ask for a 25-hydroxy vitamin D test also called a 25(OH) D test. This test measures the circulating form of vitamin D that the liver generates before the kidneys activate it. The unit of measurement used for vitamin D is nanograms per milliliter. Aim to have a 25-vitamin D level of at least 30 nanograms per milliliter or even better 40-50. Sun exposure for vitamin d Our most abundant source of vitamin D is the sun. Most of us need only a few minutes a day of sun exposure during the summer months to have healthy vitamin D levels. The goal is not to get tanned. You should only get enough sun exposure to maintain healthy 25-vitamin D levels. If you live in a place where you can't get enough sunshine, then there are other ways to get vitamin D.It’s almost impossible to obtain an adequate amount of vitamin D from your diet.Therefore the only other sensible way to get vitamin D other than the sun is through supplements. There are two types of vitamin D used in fortified foods and supplements, Vitamin D3 and D2. Vitamin D2 is as effective as D3 at raising vitamin D levels. Skin cancer sun The pharmaceutical industry started our fear of the sun. Aggressive “educational” campaigns funded by the cosmeceutical industry created an anti-sunshine hysteria. They convinced everyone that no amount of unprotected sun was safe.The campaigns made people fearful of the sun, and their sales soared. Sunscreens There is little evidence that sunscreen prevents most types of skin cancer.Until recently, most sunscreens blocked only UVB radiation and not UVA rays. The sunscreens enabled people to stay unprotected against UVA rays for unlimited periods of time.  That raised the risk of melanoma in the United States and other Western cultures. When you wear sunscreens, you can't generate any vitamin D. Instead of using sunscreen wear more clothes to protect your skin. Or stay in the shade. The most common sunscreens on the market contain chemical filters. Oxybenzone in sunscreens can cause allergic skin reactions. You have a decreased risk of developing colon, prostate, and breast cancer if you maintain adequate vitamin D levels. There is no credible scientific evidence that moderate sun exposure causes melanomas. Regular, moderate amount of unprotected sun exposure is necessary for good health. People who get regular, moderate sun exposure are less likely to get melanoma than those who don’t get enough sunshine. If you avoid getting sunburned, the benefits of sun exposure will far outweigh the cons.

Sunburn Tattoos and the Risk of Skin Cancer
 
01:10
Dr. Michael Conroy, a dermatologist at OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital, discusses the risks associated with sunburn tattoos. The art of creating sunburn tattoos is a dangerous, new summer fad that involves placing a stencil on top of one’s skin and then deliberately getting a sunburn so that the pattern becomes a temporary “tattoo.” According to Dr. Conroy, sunburns (both deliberate and undeliberate) can trigger skin cancer later on in life. However, because many young people tend to brush off concerns about skin cancer, Dr. Conroy also warns that sunburns can prematurely age the skin. “You can hit home with them when you’re talking about, well, when you’re 30, you’re probably going to look like you’re 38 or 40,” explains Dr. Conroy. “And that starts to ring a bell a little bit for those guys.” Even though young people may pay more attention to warnings against aging skin rather than cancer, cancer is still the biggest concern from a physician’s standpoint. This is why Dr. Conroy also makes it a point to remind us that we should be aware of tanning as well, as there is no such thing as a “safe tan.” For information on skin cancer, please visit http://bit.ly/1VwYv9x What are your thoughts on sunburn tattoos?

It's not an easy question to answer, there are multiple factors in place. The number one though, by far is sun exposure. It's not just an exposure in the past year or two, but sun exposure that started very early in life and that extends into teen-age years. A sunburn in particular is a very important risk factor. Recently, people have shown that using tanning booths is a separate risk factor other than prior skin exposure. The second to think about is family history. Do you have a mother or a father with skin cancer? What type is it? Was it related to melanoma or non-melanoma? These can all factor into whether you should be screened for skin cancer, or how frequently you should be screened for skin cancer.

How Do You Know When a Sunburn is Dangerous [DermTV.com Epi #510]
 
03:00
We all get sunburns. Even dermatologists. And we all know that a sunburn means your skin has been damaged. But how do you know when a sunburn is actually dangerous? In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz discusses how to know when your sunburn is dangerous, as well as why sunburns are dangerous. Subscribe to DermTV: http://www.youtube.com/dermtvdotcom http://DermTV.com Connect with DermTV: http://www.facebook.com/dermtv http://www.twitter.com/dermtv [Transcript] Everyone knows that the sun causes premature photo aging, blotching, wrinkling, broken capillaries, and of course, skin cancer. A sunburn is your first warning sign that the sun is causing damage. And a sunburn can actually destroy your skin as you've seen when the damaged skin peels off after a red, burning sunburn. But what determines when that sunburn is actually dangerous? What in that sunburn causes the damage that actually starts your skin cancer? The answer is a little scary. UV energy is much more powerful than visible light. For the scientifically curious, as the wavelength of light decreases, it's energy increases. And UV has a shorter wavelength than visible light. UV energy is so strong that it actually can break and then more importantly, distort the chemical bonds that connect the building blocks of the skin's DNA. That causes the DNA chain to become misshaped. Internal control mechanisms which are in place to try to prevent cancer cause that cell, with its mutated misshapen DNA, to commit suicide, technically called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. This is what ultimately causes your skin to peel after your sunburn. But not all cells, whether in the skin or other organs, obey these rules. And despite the DNA damage resulting in DNA mutation, some cells survive because of modest DNA repair sufficient to allow it to continue to reproduce, but now with mutated DNA. These are the cells, these are your cells, that years later grow into your skin cancer. How do you know if your sunburn caused this to actually occur? Well, there's no sure-fire method, but one tell-tale sign is usually a burn that blisters. So the more often you get badly sunburned, the more apt you are to get skin cancer, especially melanoma, the skin cancer that kills 1 American every 55 minutes. Bottom line: I never tell anyone not to go out in the sun and have fun, but I tell everyone how to protect themselves while they're in the sun: Apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 to 30 with UVA protection before sun exposure and reapply immediately after swimming or sweating and every 2 to 3 hours. Have fun! [ABOUT DERMTV] Everyone can have beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin, and DermTV, the Internet's daily skincare video show, will demonstrate how by revealing expert tips and techniques and by providing real solutions for real skincare issues. Skincare (whether cosmetic or medical) previously required a trip to your dermatologist or a shopping spree at the pharmacy. And that's if you have a trusted nearby dermatologist or a local informed pharmacy. But not anymore. We at DermTV are committed to making best-in-class dermatology and skincare guidance accessible to everyone, anytime, at your computer. Every weekday, our host, Dr. Neal Schultz, one of New York's most trusted and respected dermatologists, teaches skincare's most timely and timeless issues.

HOW SUNSCREEN COULD BE CAUSING SKIN CANCER, NOT THE SUN- HEALTH
 
10:33
Today's Alternative News Channel - HOW SUNSCREEN COULD BE CAUSING SKIN CANCER, NOT THE SUN Summer may be a long way off, but it’s never too early to start thinking about protecting your skin. For most people, this means covering themselves in sunscreen, which corporate marketing campaigns encourage at every turn. Yet, while we do indeed need protection to prevent sunburns, blocking out the sun entirely is not ideal. Rich in vitamin D, it offers a number of other health benefits, including, oddly enough, cancer prevention. We’ve been made to fear the sun, and, as a result, adults and children are choosing to drench themselves in a bath of toxic, hormone-disrupting chemicals. Science has long shown that what we put on our skin ends up in our bodies, and quickly. Multiple studies from across the world have examined sunscreen in particular, evaluating its ingredients and how it penetrates and absorbs into the skin after application. One study, conducted at the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba, Canada, sought to develop a method for quantifying common sunscreen agents. Results demonstrated a significant penetration of all sunscreen agents into the skin, meaning all of these chemicals are entering multiple tissues within the body. Conversely, a study published in Environmental Health Perspectives showed a significant drop in hormone-disrupting chemicals that are commonly found in personal care products after participants switched to ‘cleaner’ products. These chemicals include oxybenzone, triclosan, parabens, phthalates, and more. You can read more about that and access the study here. All of these ingredients are found within most poplar sunscreens. So, the next question becomes, are the ingredients used to make sunscreen, which are entering into our bloodstream, something to be concerned about? The science given to us by the corporations who profit from the sale of sunscreen says no, but I think by now we have established how trustworthy such corporately-funded ‘science’ is. It wasn’t long ago that Johnson & Johnson, for example, was found guilty of knowingly putting a cancer-causing baby powder on the market. This is precisely why we wanted to bring attention to an article published by the Huffington Post titled “Excuse Me While I Lather My Child In This Toxic Death Cream.” In it, mother Sarah Kallies shares how exhausted she feels trying to navigate today’s world and do the best for her children when everything, everywhere, seems to be killing us. For every purchase she makes for her children, there is science telling her it’s great on the one hand and toxic on the other, and so she highlights how confusing the consumer marketplace has become. We are dished a wealth of information that differs from source to source, on a variety of different topics, making it difficult to make even the simplest of choices without second-guessing ourselves. Yet we know the various chemicals found within sunscreens are toxic, and we know that our skin absorbs whatever we put onto it.

How Does The Sun Affect Your Skin? Benefits & Harmful Effects of Sunlight Exposure Animation Video
 
02:02
Sun’s effect on skin: The skin uses sunlight to help manufacture vitamin D, which is important for normal bone formation. But sometimes its ultraviolet light can be very detrimental. Within the skin's epidermal (outer) layer are cells that contain the pigment melanin. Melanin protects skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which can burn the skin, and over time, could reduce its elasticity and cause a person to age prematurely. Suntanning occurs because exposure to sunlight causes the skin to produce more melanin and to darken. The tan fades as these cells move toward the surface and are sloughed off. Health effects of sunlight exposure. The ultraviolet radiation in sunlight has both positive and negative health effects, as it is both a principal source of vitamin D3 and a mutagen. A dietary supplement can supply vitamin D without this mutagenic effect, but bypasses natural mechanisms that would prevent overdoses of vitamin D generated internally from sunlight. Vitamin D has a wide range of positive health effects, which include strengthening bones and possibly inhibiting the growth of some cancers. UV exposure also has positive effects for endorphin levels, and possibly for protection against multiple sclerosis. Visible sunlight to the eyes gives health benefits through its association with the timing of melatonin synthesis, maintenance of normal and robust circadian rhythms, and reduced risk of seasonal affective disorder. Long-term sunlight exposure is known to be associated with the development of skin cancer, skin aging, immune suppression, and eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Short-term over-exposure is the cause of sunburn, snow blindness, and solar retinopathy. UV rays, and therefore sunlight and sunlamps, are the only listed carcinogens that are known to have health benefits, and a number of public health organizations state that there needs to be a balance between the risks of having too much sunlight or too little. There is a general consensus that sunburn should always be avoided. Too much exposure to ultraviolet or UV rays can cause sunburn. UV rays penetrate the outer skin layers and pass into the deeper layers, where they can damage or kill skin cells. People who do not have much melanin and sun burn easily should protect themselves by covering up sensitive areas, wearing sun block, limiting their total exposure time, and limiting their sun exposure between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Frequent and prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays over many years is the chief cause of skin cancer. Examine skin regularly for development of suspicious growths or changes in an existing skin lesion. Early detection and treatment are key in increasing the cure rate for skin cancer. Risks to skin: Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation present in sunlight is an environmental human carcinogen. The toxic effects of UV from natural sunlight and therapeutic artificial lamps are a major concern for human health. The major acute effects of UV irradiation on normal human skin comprise sunburn inflammation erythema, tanning, and local or systemic immunosuppression. The most deadly form, malignant melanoma, is mostly caused by indirect DNA damage from UVA radiation. This can be seen from the absence of a direct UV signature mutation in 92% of all melanoma. UVC is the highest-energy, most-dangerous type of ultraviolet radiation, and causes adverse effects that can variously be mutagenic or carcinogenic. Despite the importance of the sun to vitamin D synthesis, it is prudent to limit the exposure of skin to UV radiation from sunlight and from tanning beds. According to the National Toxicology Program Report on Carcinogens from the US Department of Health and Human Services, broad-spectrum UV radiation is a carcinogen whose DNA damage is thought to contribute to most of the estimated 1.5 million skin cancers and the 8,000 deaths due to metastatic melanoma that occur annually in the United States. Lifetime cumulative UV exposure to skin is also responsible for significant age-associated dryness, wrinkling, elastin and collagen damage, freckling, age spots and other cosmetic changes. The American Academy of Dermatology advises that photoprotective measures be taken, including the use of sunscreen, whenever one is exposed to the sun. Short-term over-exposure causes the pain and itching of sunburn, which in extreme cases can produce more-severe effects like blistering. Cosmetic Procedures: Sun Exposure and Skin Cancer The sun's rays make us feel good, and in the short term, make us look good. But our love affair isn't a two-way street. Exposure to sun causes most of the wrinkles and age spots on our faces. Consider this: One woman at age 40 who has protected her skin from the sun actually has the skin of a 30-year-old!

There are two common causes of non-melanoma skin cancers. They are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. People who have fair skin and who have a lot of exposure to the sun are at the highest risk for skin cancer. Anderson Cooper of CNN reported that he had a spot of skin cancer removed Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that can show up in places that are harder to see on the skin, like on your back or the inside linings of your mouth or even under your feet. Melanoma tends to be a more aggressive type of skin cancer. It can present with different colors on your skin, black, brown, bluish. It tends to have jagged, irregular edges, and it can be uneven or asymmetric. Melanoma can even look like a black dot when it first appears. Indeed, excess sun exposure does put you at increased risk for skin cancer, but so does an increased exposure to tanning beds. Andy Cohen of Bravo and the Real Housewives franchise used to be a self-proclaimed “tanorexic._ He once had a black dot on his lower lip and his friend, Kelly Ripley, noticed it and she urged him to see his doctor. That black dot turned out to be melanoma. In my medical practice, when I counsel on sun exposure and skin cancer, I've had more than one of my know-it-all patients ... and you know who you are ... tell me, "Dr. Frita, why are you telling me this? Black people can't get skin cancer." Not true. The legendary Bob Marley had skin cancer, melanoma. It actually started out as a dark spot that he saw under his toenail. He just thought it was an injury from playing soccer. But as it turns out, it was melanoma, and he died at the age of 36. It just goes to show you, no matter what your color, your ethnicity, your culture, it's important that you pay attention to your body, that you examine your own skin and make note of any changes. How do you diagnose a skin cancer? You go to your physician. Your physician will examine your skin all over, and if they see any type of a lesion or a mole that looks suspicious, then they will set you up for a biopsy or they will sample that lesion. Your doctor will then send that biopsy or that sample to another type of physician, a pathologist, who will examine that biopsy under the microscope. If it looks like skin cancer, then they will make that diagnosis. How can you prevent skin cancer? Well, the most important thing is to try to avoid too much exposure to the sun. Try to avoid the sun during peak hours, like between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Also, avoid tanning beds. Most tanning beds emit UVA radiation, which can be harmful to the skin. Another thing to do, if you can't avoid the sun, which most of us can't, make sure that you protect your skin. You can protect your skin by wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB range radiation. Also, make sure that the SPF, the sun protection factor, is at minimum 30, but if you have fair skin or if you're going to have prolonged exposure to the sun, you need to use an even higher SPF. Also, wear wide-brimmed hats. Wear shades. Put on a nice thin clothing that will cover your arms, that will cover your legs, and make sure you reapply your sunscreen frequently, especially if you go swimming or if you've been wiping your skin down or if you've just been out for more than a little bit of time. Make sure that you reapply your sunscreen frequently, especially if you've been sweating or swimming or wiping down your skin. Oh, and can black people get sunburned?

Melanoma Skin Cancer Symptoms You Should Not Ignore|
 
03:05
Melanoma Skin Cancer Symptoms You Should Not Ignore| Melanoma is a type of skin cancer, which develops in the cells called melanocytes. These cells are responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin. In women, melanoma is most often seen in the lower legs, while the most common site in men is the back. Melanoma is responsible for the majority of deaths related to skin cancers. The exact cause of melanoma is not clear, but it is usually associated with DNA damage resulting from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun. Risk Factors Some of the factors that may increase your risk of developing melanoma include: - A fair skin tone due to less pigment (melanin), which means less protection from UV radiation - Living in areas closer to the equator or at a higher elevation where sun exposure is greater - Regular usage of tanning beds or lamp devices - One or more episodes of blistering sunburn during childhood - Presence of multiple moles or unusual moles on the skin - A family history of melanoma - A weakened immune system - People with no risk factors or darker skin can also develop melanoma. - People with darker skin are more vulnerable to hidden melanomas in areas like the soles of feet and palms of hand that do not receive sun exposure. Warning Signs and Symptoms - Early detection helps in the treatment of melanoma. - Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, biologic and targeted therapies. - If not detected early, melanoma can spread to other parts of the body and can be deadly. melanoma skin cancer warning signs Here are some of the warning signs and symptoms that you should not ignore. New mole One possible sign is a new mole appearing unexpectedly after the age of 21 that is asymmetrical, has an irregular outline and is bigger than 6 mm or ¼ inch in diameter. There can be one or more new moles. An unusual skin spot Another important warning sign of melanoma is a spot that looks different from all of the other spots on your skin (known as the ugly duckling sign). Changes in a mole’s appearance Changes in color, diameter, shape or size of an existing mole, birthmark, or a pigmented area can also be a sign of melanoma. It can increase in size and appear pearly, translucent, tan, brown, black or multicolored. Also, there can be symptoms like a scaly appearance, bleeding or oozing, or the appearance of a bump or nodule.

Tanning Beds and Skin Cancer Risks
 
06:49
Tanning Beds and Skin Cancer Risks. What is a tan?. Highlights. 1.A tan is your skin’s defense mechanism in response to receiving too much ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or other sources. 2.Tanning beds are not safer alternatives to natural sunlight. 3.You can achieve the same glowing, bronze look from sunless tanners and sprays found in drugstores. Our society associates a glowing tan with health, youth, and attractiveness. However, the plain truth is that a tan or sunburn is your body’s way of telling you that you’ve been exposed to too much ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Exposure to the sun’s UV rays causes skin cells (melanocytes) to darken your skin by producing more melanin (which makes your skin appear darker). The darkening process is actually your skin’s defense against more UV damage. While the tan will fade, the damage that occurs to your skin is long-lasting. This damage increases your risk for skin cancers such as melanoma as well as signs of premature aging with increased wrinkles. Some people use tanning beds in the pursuit of a bronzed glow year-round. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises that we completely avoid artificial UV sources such as tanning beds. According to the FDA, the sunlamps in tanning beds may be more dangerous than the sun. Unlike the sun, which comes and goes depending on the weather, you can use tanning beds at the same intensity every day of the year. This increases exposure and health risk. On that same note, the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organization's International Agency of Research on Cancer panel have stated that UV radiation from the sun as well as artificial sources like tanning beds are a known carcinogen, which means that they may cause cancer. What are the types of UV radiation?. Ultraviolet light is the invisible radiation in light and contains the following three layers: *UVA: weakest UV ray, ages skin and tends to cause allergic reactions (rash). *UVB: burns and ages skin, most responsible for sunburns. *UVC: most dangerous, but not seen as a threat because it doesn’t penetrate the Earth’s ozone layer. Why do people use tanning beds?. Historically, tan skin revealed that you did hard labor outdoors. Most people frowned on tanned skin, seeing it as weathered and a sign of the working class. The wealthier class stayed inside or shielded themselves with parasols when outside to maintain their porcelain skin. Enter Coco Chanel. The fashion designer started a fad in 1923 when she returned from a trip to the Riviera with a brand new shade of golden brown skin. A trend was born. Everyone from celebrities to housewives suddenly craved the sun and sought sunny locations to work on their tans. By the 1950s, bikini bathing suits appeared on the scene and heightened the craze for a full-body tan. As the decades passed, the rise in skin cancers began to cause alarm. Warnings came from dermatologists and doctors about the skin damage and dangers of the sun’s harmful radiation. Tanning booths appeared in the early part of the 20th century as a means of medical research. In light of doctors’ warnings about sun radiation, tanning beds gained popularity in the 1970s as a supposedly healthy alternative to tanning in natural sunlight. What are the risks associated with tanning beds?. All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

Retin-A Can Prematurely AGE Your Skin!
 
05:52
What is Retin-A and how does it work? Retin-A was originally used to treat Acne and came to be used for anti-aging as well. But did you know Retin-A can actually PREMATURELY AGE your skin if not used properly? https://youtu.be/hpN0E5f5C80 ----- **STOP USING THE WRONG SKIN CARE PRODUCTS AND TAKE THE SKIN TYPE QUIZ! LOOK FOR ME ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER! https://www.goseechristy.com/beautyandskincareblog/ ----- Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/GoSeeChristy/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoSeeChristy... Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/goseechristy/ ----- Today we're going talk about How Retin-A works and how it can potentially prematurely age your skin! Retin-A was originally created and prescribed to people with Acne. It helped heal Acne lesions faster and prevented new Acne from coming to the surface of the skin. How did it do that? When applied to your skin, Retin-A sped up the skin-cell turnover rate (which is how it helped heal the Acne lesions faster). What we found out was as a side effect, Retin-A could be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles! So, Retin-A (also known as Tretinoin or OTC of Retinol) can be found in over-the-counter products, but they have a VERY little percentage in them. The ones that will give you the best results can be found at the Dermatologist, where they have to prescribe it to you. These are more of a purer form and have a much higher percentage of Retin-A in the products. So, as you now know, Retin-A speeds up the skin-cell turnover rate. In addition to healing Acne lesions faster and preventing more Acne from forming, it can also minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles! This anti-aging miracle happens because it forces the skin to shed faster and regenerate faster mimicking and behaving like younger skin. Therefore, it GREATLY reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by making them look not quite as deep. Now, there is another (not-so-great) side effect of using Retin-A for long periods of time: It can cause a lot of underlying inflammation, which can make the skin look red and cause it to feel dry, itchy, and scaly. How can you avoid this? If you are already using Retin-A for anti-aging or are thinking of using Retin-A, we recommend to ONLY use it at NIGHT... NEVER during the day. Retin-A can make your skin EXTREMELY photosensitive, meaning if you use it during the day, your skin is more vulnerable to getting sunburned, which then causes your skin to age faster. (Which completely defeats the purpose of using Retin-A in the first place...) We also recommend to ONLY use it during the cooler Fall and Winter months. Still, only at NIGHT. And, like we mentioned before, we recommend to NOT use it for an extended period of time. (Give your skin a rest!) Use it in shorter amounts with breaks in between. When we have clients come in, and they have been using Retin-A for a long period of time, we can usually tell because they all have the SAME look to their skin: an inflamed redness to their skin. So, how does any of this potentially prematurely age your skin? With prolonged use, you are constantly thinning out the Stratum Corneum (which is the outer layer / top layer of the skin). This can make you more prone to irritation and redness, and your skin can become more sensitized to the environment and skincare products causing inflammation. When your skin is irritated and inflamed, your body sends out the white blood cells because it's detecting the inflammation and thinks there's a potential infection. When your body is constantly sending out the white blood cells, eventually your skin may age from the INSIDE because the white blood cells break down the Collagen and Elastin in your skin. On the OUTSIDE, the Retin-A is making your skin thinner and more sensitized which makes it vulnerable to aging from too much Sun and also dries out your skin. The way you can treat this is to wear a high SPF sunscreen / moisturizer. We recommend an SPF of between 30-to-50. (If you're using an SPF of 70 or higher they are typically CHEMICAL sunscreens and may irritate your skin.) When your skin is sensitive or more sensitized, whether it's because your skin is naturally sensitive or due to use of Retin-A, we recommend you use a MINERAL sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens and moisturizers include the following ingredients: Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, etc. (anything that ends in "oxide"). These are the sunscreens that stay ON TOP of your skin rather than absorbing INTO your skin and your body. We also recommend you hydrate your skin as much as possible! Along with increasing the skin-cell turnover rate (which will thin out your skin and may cause it to flake), the skin loses its ability to hold on to moisture. Therefore, you may experience T.E.W.L.: "Trans-Epidermal Water Loss". Your skin loses the ability to hold on to and retain moisture because it is shedding so quickly. Which can lead to MORE fine lines and wrinkles!

The importance of wearing sunscreen explained

Contact inquiries@nextanimation.com to license this or any News Direct video For story suggestions please contact tips@nextanimation.com.tw RESTRICTIONS: NONE Every summer people neglect to wear sunscreen and instead, opt for a tan, ignoring the permanent damage that UV radiation can wreak on their skin. According to research chemist Kerry Hanson, there are two types of UV rays that harm the skin: UVA and UVB. UVA rays cause skin aging. They penetrate deep into the dermis and damage collagen that makes skin elastic and smooth, resulting in wrinkles. UVA rays also indirectly damage DNA. They generate free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species, which in turn cause DNA mutations. UVB rays directly damage DNA and cause sunburn. Damaged cells trigger an inflammatory response, which is the source of a sunburn's redness. Cells beyond repair die off, causing the sunburn to peel. In cells that refuse to die, unrepaired DNA damage caused by UVA or UVB rays can accumulate and lead to skin cancer. Sunscreen protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. It contains UV filters, which form a protective barrier over the skin by either absorbing or reflecting UV rays. To maximize its protective powers, experts recommend using sunscreen with the label "broad spectrum" for protection from both UVA and UVB rays. It should be reapplied every two hours and after exposure to water. To further increase sunscreen's ability to block UV rays, researchers are currently testing different antioxidants in sunscreen formulas to increase their ability to block UV rays. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. Skin aging caused by UVA rays 2. Indirect DNA damage caused by UVA rays 3. Direct DNA damage and sunburn caused by UVB rays 4. Development of skin cancer from damaged DNA 5.

However, too much sun exposure can cause serious damage to your skin, leaving it dehydrated, wrinkly, aged, and even causing skin cancer. So despite the fact that we know you’ll do your best to protect your skin from sun damage by using a sunscreen with a high SPF—if you do end up with a pain, inflamed, itchy, blistering, flaky sunburn—you can find some relief with these ten soothing treatments… 1. Oatmeal Oatmeal is the bomb when it comes to soothing irritated, inflamed skin. It works wonders as a cool compress by wrapping a 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal in gauze, running it under cool water, and applying it directly to your sunburn every few hours. 2. Cold Compress You know a nice cool shower of bath will cool a fiery sunburn, but lying in cold water might be a bit chilly after a while. Instead, you can apply a cold cloth or a few ice cubes wrapped in a towel directly to the burn. 3. Yogurt The natural cultures in yogurt can work wonders on dry skin so it makes perfect sense that they would also work magic on a stubborn sunburn. Use yogurt as a topical cream and slather it over sunburned areas, leaving it for 5-minutes, then rinse off under a cool shower. 4. Witch Hazel Witch hazel is a beneficial natural astringent with anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it also soothes painful acne and razor burn. For a sunburn, apply a few drops on a moist cloth or cotton swab and dab directly onto skin. 5. Baking Soda A bit of baking soda in a cool or lukewarm bath will temporarily provide relief to sun burn pain. Just remember to let your skin air dry out of the bath so the baking soda really soaks in and soothes the pain. 6. Hydrocortisone An over-the-counter hydrocortisone topical cream, spray, or ointment can soothe inflamed and painful sunburns. Just be sure to look for a topical solution with at least 1-percent hydrocortisone listed in the ingredients. 7. Apple Cider Vinegar It might sound like it would sting, but apple cider vinegar will actually provide the relief you need from sunburn. Just add a cup to your bath water or apply it like an astringent with a cotton swab. 8. Tea Bags It doesn’t matter what kind you use—black tea, white tea, or green tea—the quick relief for sunburned eyelids a cool tea bag applied to each swollen eye. The tannic acid within will ease swelling and reduce pain. 9. Aloe Vera Slathering on Aloe Vera gel will provide a cool, refreshing blast of relief to sun burnt skin. Pure Aloe Vera right from the plant leaf will also encourage the healing process. 10. Drink Water It might sound too simple to be effective, but sun burnt skin is seriously dehydrated and the best cure for dehydration is H2O. Tip your glass to the tap and your elbow to your lips with a few glasses of cool water to counteract the sun’s scorching damage. {The information provided on this channel and its videos is for general purposes only and should not be considered as professional advice.

Blue light Ages Your Skin | How to Reduce Blue Light Exposure
 
03:49
What Are UVAging & UVBuring? https://youtu.be/WtzLYRB-oQ8 Blue light Ages Your Skin | How to Reduce Blue Light Exposure How Is Your Phone Aging Your Skin? Most people know that looking at your cell phone too much can damage your eyes, but did you know the light from your cell phone’s screen can age your skin too? Before I go into why the light from your cell ages your skin, let’s discuss what kinds of lights can age your skin in general. UVBUVB is one of the UV rays from the sun that damages your skin. I call UVB “UV-Burning,” because it’s the type of light that causes sunburns. UVB burns your skin because it penetrates the first layer of your skin. UVAUVA is another type of radiation from the sun. I call UVA “UV-Aging,” because it produces wrinkles, age spots, sagging, and all that bad stuff, including skin cancer. This type of light radiates down to the 2nd layer of your skin. As you can imagine, UV-Aging is much more harmful to your skin than UV-Burning. I have done a video about UV-Aging and UV-Burning, so if you haven’t watched, click on the links in the description below. Blue LightBlue light from mobile phone or any electronic devices damages your eyes, but recent studies have shown that it damages your skin too. The reason why it damages your skin too is because the radiation from blue light penetrates all the way down to the 3rd layer of your skin. Remember, UV-Burning goes to the 1st layer, UV-Aging goes to the 2nd layer, and blue light goes to the 3rd layer. As you can see, blue is the worst kind of light for your skin. In fact, blue light isn’t only generated by your electronic devices – blue light comes from the sun too! According to a recent study, the sunscreens currently on the market don’t really protect you from blue light at all. So, what’s the solution? If sunscreen doesn’t cut it, what should you do? Wear physical protection outside as much as possible. In Japan, it’s very popular to wear blue light shield glasses in offices, but here are some tips to prevent blue light from the screens. Cover the screen with a blue light filter. Dim the screen light. For a laptop, you can actually change the graphic settings to reduce the amount of blue in the picture. For a PC, follow these steps (http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2134899470957440901). For a Mac, follow these steps (http://mirunews.jp/6650).

The Different Types of Brown Spots [DermTV.com Epi #474]
 
03:34
Brown spots and blotches are the most common skin discoloration. There are many types, and in order to treat them, you first need to know what each type is. In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz discusses all of the different types of brown spots. Subscribe to DermTV: http://www.youtube.com/dermtvdotcom http://DermTV.com Connect with DermTV: http://www.facebook.com/dermtv http://www.twitter.com/dermtv [TRANSCRIPT] Brown spots and blotches on the face are the most common facial discoloration and they can occur anywhere on your skin. There are many different types, and most are easy to fix, however some prove to be challenging to improve and others even defy many treatments. What about yours? Stay tuned! No matter what your ancestry or racial background, virtually everyone is susceptible to varying degrees of tan or brown discoloration anywhere and everywhere on their skin. A previous DermTV episode discussed age spots, also called sun or liver spots, but today I'll put into perspective the entire spectrum of brown discoloration. And to simplify it, I'm not talking about moles or beauty marks today. In short, all brown discolorations are caused by your pigment cells, called melanocyes, making too much of your normal brown pigment, which is called melanin. Those cells normally make melanin all the time and that melanin is one of four pigments that are responsible for determining your normal skin color. But when the melanocytes make too much melainin, you get brown discoloration. And the reason that happens is usually in response to some type of an injury to the skin. When the brown discoloration is in response to an acute injury like a cooking burn, a scratch, a pimple, a picked pimple, or a sunburn, it's called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or PIH for short. Post means after. Inflammatory means inflammation, which occurs as a response to all injuries, and hyperpigmentation means too much melanin pigment which of course is brown. So with most of these injuries the area that darkens or turns brown is the same area that was injured...round spots from pimples, linear areas from burns from the edge of a pan or pot or the shape of the scratch, and of course your tan after a sunburn occurs everywhere you were sun burned. This type of PIH is easy to treat. Age or sun spots which come very gradually over years and are round but often with irregular borders, are also from a skin injury but in this case it's chronic and repeated UV injury over many years. It's the same bad UV rays that cause premature aging and skin cancer. These spots are easy to treat. The last brown discoloration occurs in women and is blotchy irregular tan and brown patches that most often occurs on the forhead, cheeks, upper lip and chin. It's called melasma, or chloasma, but if you're pregnant then it's called the mask of pregnancy. This discoloration is very tough to treat. The bottom line is, if you have brown discoloration, as you can now see, it's usually as a result of skin injuries. And now that you know the types, check out the DermTV episodes on each to learn about treatment. One thing is for certain though: sunscreen will help the treatment of every single one. [ABOUT DERMTV] Everyone can have beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin, and DermTV, the Internet's daily skincare video show, will demonstrate how by revealing expert tips and techniques and by providing real solutions for real skincare issues. Skincare (whether cosmetic or medical) previously required a trip to your dermatologist or a shopping spree at the pharmacy.

Dermatologist Explains Skin Cancer and Melanoma Risks - Dr. Bailey Skin Care [2018]
 
28:26
Dermatologist tips on skin cancer and Melanoma Are you at risk? In this video, I get pretty nerdy and go into some serious detail about Melanoma, the different kinds of skin cancers and if you are actually at risk. Think that’s Melanoma on your skin or a harmless bump? Watch the video, and you'll have a better idea. Now, this video is pretty long so I have created a table of contents to help you navigate: 2:00 What is Melanoma? 9:00 Who Gets Melanoma? 11:15 What Puts me at Higher Risk of Melanoma? 18:20 What are the Warning Signs of Melanoma? 23:52 Advocate for Yourself 26:20 Preventing Melanoma Roughly, 1 in 28 Americans will develop Melanoma. The good news is it’s 99% curable over a five-year period if caught early enough. “Early enough” means the Melanoma growth is still mostly on the epidermis. If it has spread deep into the dermis of your skin, it is considered “late.” That’s why it’s SO IMPORTANT to know what to look for. Who gets Melanoma? For men under 50, it’s the #1 cancer. Women under 50 still get more Melanoma than men, but it’s the #3 cancer (this is due to the number of breast and thyroid cancers). It’s common for both genders under 50. The most vulnerable group is Caucasian men over 55 years of age. And the fairer your skin, the higher your risk. That doesn’t mean darker complexions are in the clear. In fact, the darker your skin tone, the more likely Melanoma will be caught later and be deeper into your dermis. Melanoma can occur in children too. It’s rare, but it can be very aggressive. What puts me at higher risk of Melanoma? Melanoma is directly related to increased sun exposure, and your chances are doubled if you’ve had five or more blistering sunburns. Blistering means your skin was very red and it hurt to touch it. Tanning beds are another contributor. Some statistics: Use of a tanning bed before age 35 increases your chances by 75%, and using a bed 10 times over your life increases your chances by 30%. Chances are higher you will develop Melanoma if you have a lot of moles. If you have fair-colored skin and light colored eyes, you’re at higher risk. Especially, if you are a redhead or have redheads in your gene-line. A history of any skin cancers can also put you at a higher risk. Lastly, if you have a family history of Melanoma, then you are at a higher risk of getting it, too. What are the warning signs of Melanoma? A - Asymmetry - Is the mole a perfect circle or an oval or does it take a funny shape? B - Borders - Are the borders of the mole crisp and clear? Hopefully, so. C - Color - What is the color in the mole and around it? Ideally, it doesn’t have a halo. D - Diameter - Is it larger than a pencil eraser? Then you should have it looked at! E - Evolution - Does it change over time? A benign mole won’t change quickly. Advocate for Yourself If you are concerned you may have Melanoma, and you see your dermatologist who says, “Well, let’s just see what happens over the next month,” I’d encourage you to persist. If you have a strong or funny feeling that it’s Melanoma, then you should consider having it tested. Better safe than sorry! In order to reduce your chances of Melanoma, it’s crucial that you understand proper sun protection. 86% of Melanoma is the result of UV-radiation exposure, either sun or tanning-bed exposure. Melanoma is one of the few preventable cancers, and with good sun protection, you shouldn’t have to worry about ever having it. Hopefully, you found this information helpful. If so, please subscribe to this channel below and share with your friends. I’d also like to know what you think of this video and other skin care topics that are important to you. Thank you and have a great day! -Dr. Cynthia Bailey

Mayo Clinic: Have Fun in the Sun, But Be Sun Smart - Skin Cancer Prevention PSA
 
00:59
Mayo Clinic research shows skin cancer is on the rise among young people, even teenagers. It can be deadly. Because many teens and their parents think melanoma won't happen to people under 20, cases in children often aren't detected as early as physicians would like. To get the message out to kids of all ages about the importance of skin cancer prevention, Mayo created this cartoon-style public service announcement, "Have Fun in the Sun, But Be Sun Smart." In the PSA, two animal moles enjoy a sunny day at the beach. One is protected from the sun. The other isn't, gets sunburn that ruins his day and develops a skin mole that sends him to the doctor, who explains the danger of skin cancer and the importance of sun smarts: using sunscreen, skipping tanning beds, seeking shade and getting spots checked. The PSA is available at different lengths for radio and broadcast, Internet and other use. For more information on the PSA and how media, health agencies and educators can use it, please go to the Mayo Clinic News Network at http://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org.

Tan skin is damaged skin, and that’s not pretty. Tanning beds emit the same UV radiation as the sun. To avoid the wrinkles, ages spots and skin cancers caused by the sun and indoor tanning, stick with your natural, beautiful skin tone. If you start tanning between ages 18 and 24, you boost your risk of melanoma by 91%. For more information, visit www.mdanderson.org/sunsafety.

UV400 window film series is produced using a newly invented technology. Its manufacturing process is unique, resulting in superior product benefits. 1. 100% UV radiation protection. 2. Blue light protection. 3. No adhesive lines. 4. High performance solar heat rejection. 5. Non reflective. 6. Stable insulation properties. 7. No oxidation. 8. No black or white borders. 9. No communication signal disruptions. 10. No degumming & bubbling. 11. Does not easily fade or age. We know that Ultraviolet Rays causes of sunburn, aging, wrinkles, skin cancer. But our normal car windows can not protect us from UV radiation. Scientist proved that UV rays which are causes of various kinds of health problems, can block by using tinted film in our car windows. These UV rays can easily penetrate deep in into the skin and increase the rate of aging, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Statistics shows that Malaysian drivers have been attacked by skin cancer mostly on their right side. Right side is usually exposed to the sun while driving. The danger of skin cancer increases due to sun exposures. However, drivers experience a particular type of skin cancer. Cumulative sun exposure is the main reason of that. So why should you be vulnerable? You can mitigate the risk easily. Sun Barrier UV400 window tinting can block 100% of harmful UV rays and protect you from the chance of skin cancer.

CAUSES OF MELANOMA SKIN CANCER
 
01:52
As with all cancers, research is ongoing into the causes of melanoma. People with certain types of skin are more prone to developing melanoma, with the following factors associated with an increased incidence of skin cancer: 1. High freckle density or tendency to develop freckles after sun 2. High number of moles 3. Five or more atypical moles 4. Presence of actinic lentigines (small gray-brown spots also known as liver spots, sun spots, or age spots) 5. Giant congenital melanocytic nevus (brown skin marks present at birth - birth marks) 6.

Depending on skin color, it’ll take only minutes of exposure to turn one person beetroot-pink, while another requires hours to experience the slightest change. What’s to account for that difference, and how did our skin come to take on so many different hues to begin with? Angela Koine Flynn describes the science of skin color.

How to protect your skin from wrinkles and skin cancer

How to protect your skin from wrinkles and skin cancer Some people go to great lengths to avoid looking in the mirror when wrinkles start to multiply as they age. Wrinkles are caused by thin, sagging skin. They particularly appear on the face, neck, backs of hands, and tops of forearms. for more videos https://youtu.be/BaEkEtINz4s https://youtu.be/a34JkhQSteo Wrinkles occur as part of the natural aging process, when the collagen and elastin in the connective tissue of the skin become weak and break down due to changes in fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin. How to protect your skin from wrinkles and skin cancer Premature or excess wrinkles can also be caused by factors like too much exposure to sunlight or harsh environments, smoking, use of certain drugs, excessive stress, sudden weight loss, loss of vitamin E, and genetic predisposition. There are many easy home remedies that will help reduce wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. How to protect your skin from wrinkles and skin cancer How to protect your skin from skin cancer & wrinkles! Cucumbers Fresh cut cucumber cools, hydrates and soothes the skin making this an ideal remedy for sensitive skin or sunburned lips. Just cut refrigerated cucumber slices and apply directly to the skin! Potatoes The starch from a grated potato can help soothe a burn when applied directly to skin so either grate a raw, cold potato and place in a cheese cloth to apply or just apply fresh cut slices directly to your skin. How to protect your skin from wrinkles and skin cancer Whole Milk The dairy aisle is another sunburn remedy hot spot! Apply whole milk compresses to the burn for 20 minutes or bathe in a mixture of water and whole milk to soothe the burn. The fat soothes the pain of the sunburn and prevents peeling (so skim milk won’t work) while the lactic acid encourages cell turnover and promotes healing. Similarly, full-fat, plain Greek yogurt can also be applied directly to the burn for 5 minutes to help cool, moisturize and heal the sunburned skin. Coconut oil You shouldn’t be using any type of oil in place of sunblock – and we certainly recommend lathering on SPF daily! – but for those times when the sun unexpectedly scalds you, coconut oil is an effective, natural treatment for reliving sunburn discomfort. It hydrates the skin and gently exfoliates to promote healing. related link are: http://everydayroots.com/sunburn-remedies http://thebeautybean.com/skin-2/sunburn-solutions-8-diy-ways-to-soothe-your-skin-prevent-peeling-heal-sun-damage www.womansday.com/style/beauty/.../how-to-get-rid-of-forehead-wrinkl... www.nowloss.com/how-to-get-rid-of-wrinkles-naturally.htm Thanks for watching.

SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/user/DrJohnKiel FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/medicinelifestyle TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LifestyleMedYou I quickly wanted to discuss how to read sunscreen labels and choose the right one for you. Some protect only against sunburn and others have the added benefit of helping prevent skin cancer and premature skin aging which is what you should be looking for. Labels were updated in 2013 by the FDA so it’s helpful to review what has changed. Dry skin can be very difficult to control. It affects people with acne, eczema, atopic dermatitis, sensitive skin, babies, itchy or cracked skin, psoriasis, and rosacea. It is often a chronic problem. Certain moisturizers and cleansers, non-irritating clothes, detergents, can help. So can retinoids, olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, lanolin, mineral oil, petrolatum, lip balm, gloves and fragrance free products. Sunscreen and sun safety is very important.

MEET KENT I just want to stay on the water from sun up to sun down without fighting the sun or the bugs. It’s really man versus nature out there. So I drew some chicken scratch on the back of a napkin; I wanted clothes that protected my skin from the elements and breathed like a fish. In February 2009, I designed a comfortable shirt with mesh panels on the side and a vented mask with gills. That sun gets brutally hot out there.

What causes skin cancer?
 
00:52
Skin Cancer and you? In Australia, every year: • Skin cancers account for 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers. • Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70. • GPs in Australia have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer. • Around 434,000 people are treated for one or more non-melanoma skin cancers, of which about 450 die. • More than 10,300 people are treated for melanoma, of which around 1250 die. • Melanoma is the most common cancer in people aged 15-44 years. • Excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in both women and men. • Australia has one of the highest incidences of skin cancer in the world, at nearly four times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK. • The rate of melanoma incidence in women has risen by an average of 0.7% a year between 1993 and 2003 -- a total increase of 6.8% over this decade. For men, the rate has risen by 1.7% a year, a total of 18.7% over the same period. • The five-year relative survival rate for melanoma is 90% for Australian men and 95% for Australian women. Skin cancer is the most prevalent of all cancers. The main cause is over exposure to sunlight, especially sunburn. Family history is also an important risk factor. In the treatment of any skin cancers, early detection and removal is the best defence. As the sun is the main culprit, the most effective form of protection is to be sunsmart, using sun screen, a hat and shirt whenever possible.

Remember the long summer days, remember the 'barbies', remember the sunburn? Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. At least two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.1 Simple skin checks can help detect changes in skin often caused by too much sun exposure. If not recognized early and left untreated, these sun spots can significantly increase your risk of developing skin cancer.2 Register now at www.knowyourownskin.com for information and exciting tools to help you know your skin.

How The Sun Ages You
 
01:31
Over the course of a year, I was able to photograph people from all over the world, to watch, in ultraviolet, how skin ages. What's striking is how early the effects of overexposure to UV can be seen. These UV freckles are mostly not visible to the naked eye, until they become really dark, at which point they show through even the outer skin. They're like dead pixels, a sign that the skin's ability to handle UV has become overwhelmed, and that the underlying collagen is taking damage. That's not to say that freckles aren't cute - they totally can be! - just as smile lines and greying temples can be cute. But they are a sign that the skin's ability to defend itself has maxed out. What seems clear to me is that any UV protection - whether it's genetic, from having naturally good, dark skin - or by wearing a hat - or by wearing sunscreen - will slow the process of ageing. This video was paid for by Nivea Sun. My previous video, How The Sun Sees You, was not by or for any business. But as a result of that video, I started working with Nivea, whose ethics I find easily the most laudable in this sector. This video represents the lessons we learned from a year of looking at skin, namely: UV freckling starts much earlier than we thought; freckling is strongly correlated with loss of skin elasticity; skin that freckles easily ages much faster; all these things are totally controllable with extra protection from UV. What all this means is to illustrate the words of Mary Schmich in Baz Luhrmann's 1999 single Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen): "If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it."

Sunscreens: Why We Need It
 
02:46
Send a virtual consult to a U.S. board certified dermatologist at http://www.onlinedermclinic.com In this tutorial, KevinSt.Clair M.D., discusses the reasons we need to the use sunscreen on a regular basis. Key Points Sunscreens form only a part of overall sun protection strategy. Traditionally divided into chemical absorbers and physical blockers. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation comprises a portion of the spectrum of energy coming from the sun. Ultraviolet B (UVB) - direct DNA damage; sunburn. Ultraviolet A (UVA) - tanning; aging of the skin. No such thing as as "safe tan." Adaquate amount of application, reapplication, and spectrum of UV protection provided by the sunscreen are as or more important than sun protection factor (SPF) number when choosing a sunscreen. Why do we need sun protection? Ultraviolet (UV) radiation emanating from the sun causes a number of changes in the skin; some well known and others less well recognized. For instance, most are aware that chronic or excessive sun exposure causes sunburn, tanning, and skin cancer. Perhaps less well know consequences of sun exposure are premature aging (e.g. wrinkles, sagging, redness or yellowing, brown spots, thinning and fragility of the skin), decrease in the immune functioning of our skin, interaction with some medications, and worsening or causation of some diseases (e.g. Lupus erythematosus, Porphyria cutanea tarda). While consistent sunscreen use is important, it is not the only measure that should be taken to protect the skin from UV damage. When possible, one should try to perform or schedule outdoor activiites before 11 AM or after 3 PM. Wear appropriate clothing (e.g. longsleeves when possible); use broad-brimmed hats and sunglasses, and seeking shade when available are also important steps. Of course, one should never intentionally "lay out in the sun" or use tanning beds (why pay for wrinkles and skin cancer when you can get them for free??!) UV radiation is divided into shorter wavelenght, more energetic UVB (290-320 nanometers) and longer wavelength, deeper penetrating UVA (320-400 nanometers). UVB is associated more directly with skin cancer (via damage to DNA in our skin cells) and sunburn. UVA can also help cause skin cancer, but it is more linked to tanning and premature aged appearence of the skin. Protecting against both forms of UV rays is important..
