For many years, consumers have been presented with the knowledge that sunscreen protects their skin from skin cancer. This is the very reason why truckloads of sunscreen have been dispatched to address the needs of consumers for this protection. However, a new study reveals that sunscreen lotion may not prevent some forms of skin cancer.
By the year 2015, 45% of the U.S. population will be 50 or older. However, staying healthy has become a prevalent trend for this age group. 82% of adults 50 and older use the Internet to research health and wellness. Since 1987, the amount of Americans heading to the gym age 55 and up has increased 266% (making it the fastest growing age group among gym members). Over the next decade, U.S. baby boomers will spend $1 trillion dollars on wellness-based services, a significant increase from the previous amount of $200 million.
If small wrinkles, skin breakouts and age spots are preventing you from looking your best, you don’t have to settle for layers of expensive skincare products to improve your complexion. Today’s innovative skin rejuvenation treatments can help improve your skin from inside out, and treatments such as the ‘lunchtime peel’ are a quick and easy way to enjoy a mini-facelift – without painful surgery or incisions.
Excessive sun exposure, whether it’s from sunbathing at the beach or working up a tan in a tanning booth, can cause significant damage to the skin and will accelerate the aging process. Wearing sunscreen and avoiding direct exposure to sunlight are some of the best ways to keep skin healthy and ward off the signs of aging, but age spots, freckles and pigmentation may be unavoidable.
With summer right around the corner, you may already have plans to spend hours enjoying the sunshine and soaking up the sun’s rays. When sunbathing is part of your warm-weather routine, you’re putting yourself at risk for developing sun spots, also known as age spots and livers spots. Sun spots are a result of excessive sun exposure, and are usually found on the forearms, neck, chest and the back of the hands – anywhere that receives an extra dose of sunshine as you go about your day.
