Tips To Prevent Skin Cancer

by Dr Ono Alex Ohunyon on Nov 5, 2019 Health and Fitness 96 Views


The most common cause of skin cancers is the exposure to the direct sunlight. By reducing the direct exposure to the sunlight can reduce the risk of skin cancer. On the other hand, indoor tanning rates are comparatively high among specific groups including non-Hispanic white females, young, and skin cancer incidence rates are increasing. Due to these facts, most Bowral doctors recommend to take action to improve sun protection behaviours and address the harms of indoor tanning. Here we have mentioned a few tips to prevent skin cancer in Bowral.

Seek Shade

An umbrella, tree, or other shelter can provide protection from the sun and relief during hot weather. Shade does not block all UV radiation if it does not block all of the sky, nor does it protect against scattered UV rays. For this reason, shade should be combined with other methods, such as protective clothing, especially in areas with highly reflective surfaces, such as snow, water, and sand.

Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen is one of the most common methods of sun protection used by most people. By using the sunscreen as directed with the other sun protective measures can help prevent you from sunburn and reduce the risk of skin cancer and skin aging that is linked with UV radiation. Sunscreens with lower SPFs, or without broad spectrum protection, also help prevent sunburn but do not offer sufficient protection against early skin aging and skin cancer.

Use Sunglasses And Hat

Wide-brimmed hats that shade the face, ears, and back of the neck provide the most protection. Tightly woven fabrics, such as canvas, provide the best protection; straw hats with holes that let sunlight through do not provide adequate protection. A darker hat may offer more UV protection. In addition to a hat, sunglasses that block as close to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays as possible can provide extra eye protection. Wrap-around sunglasses work best because they also block UV rays from the side.

Wear Protective Clothing

To protect yourself from UV rays, you should try to use long pants, full-sleeved shirts and long skirts. Using the cloths made of tightly woven fabrics can provide better protection from UV rays. You can choose light coloured shirts or clothes which can offer more protection from the sunlight compared to the darker coloured clothes. Also, using a dry cloth offer protection from UV rays compared to the wet ones. Some clothing certified under international standards comes with information on its UV protection factor.
