Everyone who knows me knows that I am a SUNSCREEN fanatic! I never leave the home without it, even when it is raining, like it is today. According to the American Cancer Society, most of the 1 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer diagnosed every year are sun-related. They estimate that over 62,000 new cases of melanoma (THE MOST DEADLY form of skin cancer) will be diagnosed in the U.S. And although survival rates are excellent with early detection, melanoma will still claim nearly 8,000 lives this year.
When worn daily, sunscreens help to minimize the harmful effects of UVB and UVA on DNA. They also help shield important proteins like collagen, elastin, and keratin, to help prevent premature aging of skin and keep skin smooth and firm. If not, expect wrinkly and leathery skin, and even irregular pigmentation! Yikes! A big NO-NO! Sunscreen also prevents freckles.
So, if you don’t want to wear sunscreen to prevent skin cancer, there are a whole host of other (aesthetic!) reasons to slather one on every day. How else to ensure soft, silky skin? Now, I live at the beach, and usually it is not raining, so I have to be extra careful! But everyone needs to wear one. Really!
In my quest to find the perfect sunscreen – and I am always looking – I found one I absolutely love! Check out COOLA!
