Most of our summertime activities involve the outdoors in some way-swimming, camping, gardening, or spending time at the beach. But, as with most everything in life, too much of a good thing can be hazardous to your health.
Over time, the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can cause changes in the skin by damaging the elastin, or skin fibers. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its elasticity. This in turn causes freckles, wrinkles, skin discolorations, and dilation of small blood vessels under the skin. UV rays can also cause damage to the eyes, and are present on overcast days also.
Another result of too much UV sunshine is the increased risk of melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer.
A good way to identify moles that may be melanoma is the letters A-B-C-D-E:
- A= asymmetrical shape (mole has two very different looking sides)
- B= border (irregular, notched, or scalloped edges
- C= color changes (growths that display several different colors or an uneven color distribution)
- D= diameter (new growth of a mole larger than ¼ inch)
- E= evolving (changes in color, shape, or size that occur over a period of time)
Web MD offers the following tips for protection from UV rays and possible melanoma:
Apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and at least every two hours afterward (more often if you are swimming or sweating).
- Select cosmetics and contact lenses that offer UV protection.
- Wear sunglasses with total UV protection.
- Wear wide brimmed hats, long sleeved shirts, and long pants made of a lightweight material.
- Avoid direct sun exposure during peak UV radiation hours, 10:00 am-2:00 pm.
- Perform skin self- exams regularly to notice any changes or new growths.
- Studies show that 80% of a person's lifetime sun exposure is acquired before age 18. As a parent, be a good role model and foster skin cancer protection habits in your child.
- Avoid tanning beds.
In addition to Web MD, check out www.melanoma.org for more detailed melanoma information.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you,
even as your soul is getting along well.
