It’s Summer!! Are you at RISK?


Summer is the hottest of the four seasons. Who cares, its vacation time. Are you planning to hit the beach to get yourself tanned? Then, this blog is for you!

Summer isn't a good time for your skin. We all know that the sun gives us heat and light. Do you know what else it gives?


Shocked! Let’s see in detail!

First will understand the UVA and UVB differences:

UVA light has a longer wave that penetrates the thickest layer of skin, called the dermis. Unprotected exposure to UVA rays can lead to skin aging, wrinkles, and a suppressed immune system.

UVB rays have a shorter wave. It causes sunburn and also responsible to cause Skin cancer.
So UVB is the culprit. He is responsible for SKIN CANCER!


(OMG! I already exposed so much…Do I Have Skin Cancer?)

If you have any of the below symptoms don’t wait to consult a DERMATOLOGIST!
  • Smooth and pearly skin
  • Appear as a firm, red lump or may look sunken in the middle
  • Appear as a pearly brown or black lump if you have darker skin
  • Itchy feeling which bleeds easily
  • Develops a crust or scab
  • Begin to heal but never completely heal
  • Look like a flat, red spot that is scaly and crusty

Prevention is better than cure. Here comes the tip session to avoid SKIN CANCER:
  • Seek the shade, particularly between 10 am and 4 pm
  • Don’t get too sunburnt
  • Avoid tanning and never use UV tanning beds
  • Cover up with clothing including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses
  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to the entire body 30 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours after swimming or excessive sweating
  • Keep new-born and babies out of the sun
  • Examine your skin head-to-toe every month
  • See a dermatologist at least once a year


Take care of your skin and health…Have a happy Summer!!

11 Myths and Facts That Nobody Told You About Sunscreen!

There are some common myths surrounding sunblock that people should be aware of before buying the sunscreen.
Understanding the fact about sunscreen can support people to use sunscreen properly.

UVA vs UVB

UVA light has a longer wave that penetrates the thickest layer of skin, called the dermis. Unprotected exposure to UVA rays can lead to skin aging, wrinkles, and a suppressed immune system.
UVB rays have a shorter wave. It causes sunburn and also responsible to cause Skin cancer.


Here are the 11 common misunderstandings about sunscreen!


1.         Sunscreen is not always necessary
Many people believe that sunscreen is not necessary when they are not exposed to sunlight too much and it's cloudy. The truth is that anytime the body is exposed to light from the sun, it is exposed to UV rays and causes sun damage. It is best to cover the exposed skin with sunscreen and use a hat or scarf to protect your skin.

2.         Sunscreen will avoid the body from retaining vitamin D
Calcium is one of the building blocks of bone. Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium. Vitamin D also has a role in the nerve, muscle, and immune systems. After exposure to sunlight, our body forms vitamin D naturally.
People believe that using sunscreen would prevent a person from getting the proper levels of vitamin D. However, sunscreens lose their effectiveness over time, and it is likely a person will forget to put sunscreen on every time they see the sun. Hence sunscreen won’t prevent the body from absorbing Vitamin D. Scientists and dermatologists suggest that at least 5 to 30 minutes of sun exposure per day can create the proper amount of vitamin D in the body.

3.         People with dark skin don’t need sunscreen
Some people believe that people with dark skin do not need sunscreen because they have more melanin which diffuses UVB rays and protects their skin. Wait...what about UVA? UVA cannot be blocked by Melanin which means even dark skin people need sunscreen to protect their skin from UVA rays which is responsible to cause skin cancer.

4.         Sunscreen causes health problems
This myth is because of Oxybenzone, one of the active ingredients in sunscreen. Researchers exposed rats to oxybenzone which results in a serious negative side effect. Later they said the level of exposure was high that’s why it caused health issues in rats.
Their calculations demonstrated that these results were unattainable in humans even those who use sunscreen on a regular basis. There are no published researchers which demonstrate the toxic effect of sunscreen in Humans.

5.         Sunscreen never expires
Some believe that sunscreen never expires. The active ingredients in sunscreen will breakdown over time. Using the expired one is of no use; it won’t protect the skin.

6.         Sunscreen is waterproof
Sunscreen labelled as water-resistant maybe appear like waterproof. But the fact is no sunscreen is 100% waterproof.

7.         One application of sunscreen lasts all-day
Many people think that sunscreen will protect their skin all day, but the fact is screen breaks down when it is exposed to sunlight. It will last only for 2-4 hours.

8.         All sunscreens are the same
People misunderstand that all the sunscreens are the same, and they will do the same job. There are different ingredients used in different sunscreens. Their protection level varies. The important consideration is SPF (Sun Protection Factor).

9.         You cannot tan while wearing sunscreen
Sunscreen will protect your skin from UV rays. However, it may not protect your whole body. It is possible to get tan even though if you applied multiple layers of sunscreen. Tanning is the natural body’s response to UV rays. To avoid a tan, it is best to apply sunscreen and cover up with a hat and long clothing.

10.       Sunscreen works better than covering up
Many people believe that applying sunscreen will make their body invincible to the sun. But the truth is covering up your skin with cloth or hat is much better than sunscreen.

11.       Makeup is enough to protect the face
Makeup is s not a good replacement for Sunscreen. It provides an extra protective layer, not just only layer.
