PROTECT YOUR EYES THIS SUMMER

Posted by 05.23.14

Wearing sunscreen is a no brainer—we’ve all seen the data on how UV exposure leads to pre-mature skin aging and, even worse, skin cancer, including deadly melanoma. But the UVA and UVB rays of the sun also pose risks to your eyes. Extended exposure can lead to short-term irritation, but also long-term damage.

“In the same way it’s important to protect our skin from UV damage, it’s also important to protect our eyes. Long-term exposure to UV can cause damage to the structures in our eyes,” said optometrist Stephen Cohen, OD, of Scottsdale, AZ. “It’s especially important to protect our eyes during the highest UV exposure hours (10am-2pm) and when the sun is lower in the sk

PROTECTING SKIN OF COLOR

Posted by 05.30.12

From fairest pale to luscious brown, all skin types need to take care in the sun. Skin cancer can strike anyone, regardless of color, and can occur even with skin types rich in melanin. If you have lighter skin that burns easily, you have a higher risk of developing skin cancers, but contrary to popular belief, deep pigmentation does not make you immune.

With all skin tones, the key to prevention is protection, which means avoiding sun exposure during peak hours, wearing protective clothing and, of course, using broad spectrum sunscreens and sunblocks.

“Skin cancer prevention is the same for all skin types – sun protection, sun protection, sun protection,” said Washington, D.C. D
