Melanoma Rates Have Doubled in Last 30 Years

According to the CDC the rate for the deadly form of skin cancer, Melanoma, has more than doubled in the last 30 years.  The CDC cites UV radiation as the cause.

The recommendation?  Don't go outside in the summer or in the winter without a sunscreen.  According to Dr. Northington in the above article, pick a sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF, and it should protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

Women should not rely on the SPF in their foundations alone.  Children should use a water-resistant sunscreen.  And everyone should be reapplying the sunscreen every 2 hours, possibly more often if they are swimming.




Skin So Soft Bug Guard Expedition (with IR3535) 

The Aerosol (SPF 28) & Pump Spray (SPF 30) protects against rays AND protects against mosquitoes, ticks, flies, gnats, etc.  It does NOT contain DEET.  And it does not have to be washed off.  The lotion also moisturizes and has an SPF of 30.  This product was also recommended by Allure Daily Beauty Reporter in 2013 as one of the necessary products to take on a glamping trip.
