Tips to Keep your Skin Protected From The Sun

One of the main causes of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV rays). These rays are invisible, and are produced by the sun. Most often skin cancer is the result of overexposing your skin to the sun. UV rays cause this skin cancer because they create changes in the skin cells; tans and sunburns are direct examples of this. Most cases of skin cancer are preventable, and you can reduce the risk of yourself getting skin cancer by taking some simple yet extremely important steps. Select shaded areas for outdoor activities; wear clothing that will cover up your arms and legs; or apply sunblock to the areas of your skin that might be exposed to the sun.

If you are not sure what coverage to use, for example sunblock or protective clothing, it is best to go with the latter. Wearing protective clothing is one of the most effective ways to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Unlike sunscreen, protective clothing can give you continuous protection throughout the day, and you don’t have to deal with the oiliness that sunblocks and sunscreens leave behind on your skin. There are special companies, like Sunveil Protective Clothing for instance, that manufacture protective clothing that will still let your body breath with out suffocating you under long sleeves and pants.

So if your out in the sun enjoying the heat, don’t forget to cover up and protect your skin from those harmful UV rays!!

Keep Your Skin Healthy

The skin is the body’s largest organ, wrapped around our structural frame it consists of 800,000,000 cells. The skin has a thickness of 1.27 mm (one-twentieth of an inch) and weighing two and a half kilograms (six pounds)

This thin covering protects us from the elements, controlling heat and cold and offering a sensor for pain and pressure. The most important role of the skin is that of elmination. It is through the skin that impurities and metabolic waste from the body is eliminated (about a half a pound a day.)

It is important to realize that the skin not only expels toxins but is also sensitive to substances that are placed on the skin. On average (depending upon the substance ) the skin will absorb approximately 60% of what is applied to it.

This means that through the skin, absorption will occur in the blood, tissues and cells of the skin to circulate through the blood to all cells and tissues of the body.

Many prescription drugs are applied this way, for example, skin patches for estrogen and progesterone ( hormone regulation.) Because so many cosmetic products are chemical loaded, skin creams, insect repellants, cosmetics, hair products and perfumes should be chosen carefully and be as free of toxic chemicals as possible.

Within that group just mentioned there are chemicals that are considered carcogenic, some are known hormone disruptors, some chemicals ( particularly in perfumes or artificial fragrance) aren’t listed on the label as they are be considered”trade secrets”. That can open the door to putting almost anything in skin care products without having to make any disclosure whatsoever.

You woudn’t consume toxic chemicals in your food so why would you want to put them on your skin?. It only makes sense not to as this compromises the very thing that it was designed to do, remove toxins.

As humans we haven’t changed from what we are but the technology for our very existence has and it’s killing us. Our food supply has been altered to death, the skin care products we use are nothing more than chemicals.

That’s not what we need, as in the past everything was naturally organic and for time immortal that is what will always benefit us the most.The body recognizes and can convert ingredients that are truly natural as nutrients, that will never be the case with synthetic anything.

SPF Mean with Sun Block

Skin cancer is by far the most common form of cancer suffered by people. This is maddening to many medical professionals because preventing skin cancer is not only possible, it is simple. When you are going to be outside for a significant amount of time, you should wear sun screen or sun block. For those of us who don’t have nearly as much hair as we used to and would like to have, a hat is advisable as well.

As you might know, not all sun protection is created equally. There are a number of factors that go into how much protection it provides you. The first is time. If the block is only good for one hour, you need to re-apply it accordingly. The second factor is the SPF of the product in question.

So, what is SPF? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. You might have been expecting something more scientific, but there you are. SPF comes in different levels designated by a numeric system. Generally, anything under SPF 15 isn’t really worth buying because it provides minimal protection at best. SPF of 15 up through the high twenties provides a better shield against the damaging rays of the sun, but still lets a certain amount of penetration. SPF 30 or above offers the best sun protection.

On the technical side of things, SPF is not just a random number assigned by the producers of sun screen. The number actually represents a measurement of time, although loosely so in my opinion. The measure of time is determined by calculating how long you can stay out in the sun without any protection before getting a sun burn. The SPF designation is then a multiple of that time if you were the sun protection product. Let’s look at an example.

Assume you can stay out in the sun for 10 minutes before getting sunburned if you wear no protection. A sunscreen with a SPF 20 rating would then be representing that you could stay out in the sun for a 200 minutes or twenty times the period without sun protection.

As you probably noticed, there are a few problems with this calculation. First, you don’t know how long it takes for your skin to get burned and probably don’t want to find out. Second, the calculation assumes you don’t go in the water or lose coverage because of sweat. This is why it is best to reapply sun block every couple of hours or immediately after going in the water despite what the product may represent regarding being waterproof.

In general, it is best to use sun protection with a minimum of a SPF 15 rating. It is also advisable to apply it liberally

How to Look Stunning in Your 50s

1. Lighten up. Even out skin tone and ward off the effects of menopause on your skin with regular treatments using skin-lightening products.

2. Vitamin C based skin care products are very popular means of anti aging skin care. However, these seem to oxidize very quickly (which makes them harmful for the skin). So store them properly. If the product turns Yellowish brown, it means that vitamin c has oxidized and the product is no longer suitable for use.

3. Avoid the use of strong, chemical based products on your skin. Natural skin care products are a good option. Use of organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very effective anti aging skin care measure

4. Work it overnight. Night time is the best to combat wrinkles and loss of tone and moisture. Invest in a good night cream, applied after cleansing and toning, to promote regeneration.

5. Challenge yourself. Just like Madonna, always think of ways to reinvent yourself. Start from the inside and it will flow outward. It’s not too late to try a new exercise, a new spiritual path, anything that will stop you from falling into a rut.

6. Enlist the help of a natural skincare expert to examine your skin, point out trouble spots, and monitor the condition of your skin. A dermatologist can also help you understand your particular skin type, and recommend skin care products that would work best for you.

7. Many studies have been done over the years demonstrating the healing and physiological properties of bovine colostrums. Colostrums helps the immune system to function more efficiently, maintain peak performance and fight acne causing bacteria.

Colostrums supplies growth factors (hormones) as well as stimulating the endocrine system to keep producing its own supply of hormones. Research strongly indicates that the combination of growth and immune factors in colostrum works together to create a potent anti-aging effect, including tighter skin, and regrowth of cells and tissue of organs that normally decrease in size with age.

Daily supplementation on Bovine Colostrum allows the body to have improved resilience against any type of stress. Overall health and well being is accomplished when the body has all of the necessary factors it needs for defense, healing and repair.

If you have special skin issues, such as stubborn acne, rosacea, or extremely sensitive or oily skin, the best thing to do is to seek out the advice of a professional dermatologist.

Taking care of your skin will reduce the aging effect; keep it healthier as well as more resistant to injury and infections. Remember, a face that has a lived in look is much more attractive than a Botox face and character is much more beauty.
