Why SPF Daily?
By Staff Writer
Our skin is the largest organ of the body and often the most neglected.
It is our first line of defense against pollutants, ultraviolet violet (UV) radiation and other environmental factors.
A regular skin regimen coupled with SPF sunscreen and topical antioxidants has proven effective in
minimizing the damaging effects of the environment as well as helping to protect skin health.
Sunlight and Healthy Skin
Short bursts of time in the sun help the body to naturally produce vitamin D.
The UV rays from sunlight stimulate vitamin D synthesis, which in turn supports
calcium absorption to form and maintain strong bones.
Excessive exposure to sunlight without sunscreen, however, can result in sunburn
and greatly increase oneís risk of developing skin cancer. UV radiation from the sun is increasing
globally due to what scientists describe as the Earth's depleting ozone layer. It strikes Earth as
either UV-A or UV-B radiation (long and short wavelengths of ultraviolet light).
In addition, recent studies have shown that non-melanoma skin cancers are on the rise among
young adults, particularly women. Doctors have long encouraged sun protection to prevent skin
damage. Sunscreens of at least SPF 15 can limit exposure to UV radiation. Antioxidants have
been shown to help protect the skin from the damage caused by UV radiation when applied topically.
The combination activity of antioxidants and SPF sunscreens provides superior skin protection.
However, because additional factors can contribute to the formation of skin cancers, using a
sunscreen alone is not a foolproof method for preventing the development of skin cancers.
