May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and with the number of new cases increasing substantially each year (it is estimated there will be 140,000 new cases of melanoma in 2014 and approximately 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime) which is why Sevique a new skin care line created by a cancer survivor— has outlined some key tips to aid in safety, detection and prevention.
SAFETY COMES FIRST IN THE SUN
Everyone loves the sun but its effects can be detrimental to the health of your skin so follow these hints to limit dangerous exposure:
- Seek shade during the hottest part of the day usually between 10 am and 4 pm.
- Don’t burn—every sun burn you get increases your risk of developing melanoma.
- Avoid tanning booths—even an artificial tan can be dangerous by overexposing skin to Ultra Violet Rays.
- Try to cover up with clothing, hats and UV blocking sunglasses.
SCREENINGS AND EXAMS ARE KEY
Early detection of skin cancer saves lives which is why it’s important to follow these steps to be vigilant and remain proactive:
- Examine your skin head-to-toe every month—don’t forget places like the back of your neck, scalp and soles of your feet.
- Watch for skin changes of any kind such as a spot or sore that doesn’t heal, continues to itch or moles and beauty marks that change in texture, color or size.
- See your physician or dermatologist every year for a professional skin cancer exam.
PREVENTION IS CRUCIAL
In addition to following the steps outlined above it is most important to protect your skin directly:
- Use a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 everyday
- Be sure to reapply your sunscreen at least every 2 hours you are in the sun
