An Education On Melanocytic Naevi

*  Stars

How & Why Do Moles Develop? More of us have moles than those that don't, and there are numerous different types of moles; some harmless while some can be very dangerous indeed. Moles form when skin cells don't grow as they should. Instead of growing evenly spread across the skin, sometimes skin cells grown in clusters which causes moles to appear. You are more likely to get moles if you possess fair skin rather than those of us with darker skin and moles can also develop if they are common within your family.

The best way to minimise Sun Damage Over exposure to the Ultraviolet (UV) light given off in the sun's rays is both ageing and risky because it can also lead to the development of skin cancer. How Do You Minimise Sun Exposure And Damage? Most of us know that we should wear sunscreen when the sun is shining, but we should actually be wearing it all year round.

You should avoid direct sunlight wherever possible, especially during the hottest part of the day between 11am and 3pm.

Sunscreens, Creams And Lotions – What Is SPF And Does It Matter?

*  Stars

Many of us don't fully understand the significance of the sun protection factor (SPF) in the cosmetics, skin care and sunscreen products that we use every day. The SPF in these items blocks the Ultra Violet B rays (UVB) in sunlight which cause sunburn, damages the skin and can contribute to causes of skin cancer. What Does SPF Mean? The SPF in a variety of products usually comes with a number. For example, the SPF found in most skin care creams and cosmetics is most commonly SPF 15. This means that where you might spend a minute in the sun before you start burning, now you can spend fifteen minutes before skin damage begins. However, if you are outside in bright sunlight you need to reapply sunscreen every two hours to maintain protection, but an SPF 15 in your moisturising cream will adequately protect you for the day if you [...]
