Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
On September 24, the anti aging cream manufacturer Likewise Skincare reacts to an article published for The Community Voice warning young people to avoid indoor tanning as the summer comes to a close.
According to The Community Voice, over 2 million people in the US are diagnosed with skin cancer. The Community Voice article explains that too much UV exposure can lead to melanoma, a serious and life-threatening form of skin cancer. This can be prevented, the article reports, by having limited exposure to UV rays. The article states, “The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), an independent group of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine, examined the research on counseling to prevent skin cancer. It issued a recommendation that health care professionals counsel young people ages 10 to 24 years old with a fair skin type about minimizing their exposure to UV rays to reduce their risk.”
The Community Voice article advises parents to have children speak with professionals in order to better understand the dangers of indoor tanning and sun exposure. Likewise Skincare, a skincare manufacturer that includes SPF 50 in their products, commends the article. Lisa Shariat, representative for Likewise Skincare, explains, “It’s important to teach children healthy skincare habits and safe sun behavior early on. Once adolescents understand how damaging UV exposure is for their skin, hopefully they will be encouraged to stay away from tanning beds.”
In addition to seeking advice from a health care professional, the article gives various tips to help people protect themselves against damaging UV rays. The Community Voice suggests using a “broad-spectrum” sunscreen, wearing protecting clothing like wide brimmed hats and avoiding tanning beds, sun lamps and the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when UV rays are at their most powerful.
