Skin Cancer Prevention
Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Pool parties and beach days are upon us! You might have experienced the effects of too much time in the sun already!
Spending time in the sun after a gloomy winter and spring is a good thing. Vitamin D is a critical nutrient for our body and is produced when our skin is exposed to sunlight. However, exposing your skin to sunlight for too long can cause serious health risks like painful sunburns and skin cancer. You want to take certain precautions when you are planning to spend more than thirty minutes in direct sunlight. A tan, no matter which way you spin it, is caused by excessive Ultra Violet (UV) rays that have caused cell damage.
Avoid tanning beds at all cost! Tanning beds might be a quick fix for that tan you so desperately want, but do not make a habit out of using tanning salons!
