Use a sunscreen of at least 15 SPF. Skin cancers are the most common of all cancers by far. Fortunately, most of them (basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas) are rarely lethal, though they can certainly cause local disfigurement if not diagnosed early. Melanoma is both disfiguring and lethal, so it must be diagnosed as early as possible. But since it is so inconvenient to do a truly thorough check of the skin, at least by yourself, prevention is a very helpful tool. And that means the use of sunscreen and protective clothing and the avoidance of direct sun exposure between the “high hours” of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun is strongest.
If you are seeking sun for Vitamin D, remember that you can obtain Vitamin D through supplementation to avoid excess sun exposure. Check out more information on Pinnaclife’s supplement D3 + Magnesium by visiting Pinnaclife.com.
