Men – Save Your Faces

We’re all aware of the harmful effects of the sun, but do you do anything about it?

 

Nobody wants to wear full sunscreen everyday unless they’re going to the beach, so what are we meant to do?

May is Melanoma awareness month, so here are a few facts from the Melanoma Network of Canada, to make your skin safety really hit home.

 

  • It takes only one blistering sunburn to double a person’s chances of developing melanoma
  • Melanoma is one of the most common types of cancer for youth between the ages of 15-29
  • Life-time risk for melanoma is now 1 in 63 versus 1 in 1500 in the 1930s
  • In North America, one person dies from melanoma every hour
  • Melanoma can affect anyone regardless of sex, age, or race
  • The leading cause of melanoma is overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or artificial sources (tanning beds, sunlamps)
  • UV rays can get through clouds, fog and haze. Water, sand, concrete and especially snow can reflect, and even increase, the sun’s burning rays
  • Early exposure to tanning beds can increase a person’s chance of developing melanoma by up to 75%

My friends at Stoüt Face Care for Men are giving away 10 bottles of their everyday face moisturising lotion, with built-in SPF 15, which is perfect for keeping safe while out and about. Remember, if you’re spending a significant amount of time in the sun, you’ll need a higher SPF, as well as a hat to keep those rays off your face.
