Tips And Advice On Using Suncare Products To Reduce The Risk Of Skin Cancer

Mar 21, 2017 10:30:00 AM Posted by: Mr. Fuan Chan

If you are concerned about skin cancer, taking care of your own and your family’s skin day to day, all year long, is one of the most important steps you can take. Exposure to sunlight, or to be more specific, the sun’s UV rays, is one of the main causes of skin cancer. Contrary to popular belief, the sun emits UV rays all year round and even on cloudy, overcast days (and yes, here in Ireland too), skin is exposed to them. These rays penetrate the skin and can trigger reactions that lead to various forms of skin cancer. Being sun smart is one of our best defences against the disease.

Being sun aware is a year-round job as the sun’s UV rays are present and have an effect in all four seasons. This means that even on overcast days in the Irish climate skin is being affected by UV rays. Some sun exposure is important for vitamin D levels. However, it is also true that sun exposure is the main cause of skin cancer so we need to be mindful of that throughout the year.
