Slide1: Overview of Melasma - Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments Slide2: Many people love the sun, they love to laze under it and just feel the warmth that it brings. Many are unaware of the dangers it may bring. Many people as a result suffer from Melasma. Melasma is a common skin disorder. It is brought about by exposure to the sun and hormonal imbalances. The brown discoloration in the skin which is usually found in the areas of the cheeks, in the upper lip, chins and on the forehead is what is referred to as the Melasma. Primarily because these are the areas that are most exposed to the sun. Although anybody can be affected by Melasma, it is most common in women during their reproductive years. It is also most common to people who belongs to the race of Asians, Hispanics, Mediterranean decent because of their darker pigmentation of the skin and intense exposure to the sun. Slide3: Many people, especially those of Northern Europe ancestry, shouldn't depend entirely on sunscreens if they're working outdoors or otherwise spending a lot of time in the sun. While no sunscreen can offer you complete protection, there is reason to believe that slathering on a strong sunscreen regularly may help prevent skin cancer. Using sunscreen doesn't seem to lead to a deficiency in vitamin D, which your body produces when it's exposed to sunlight. Your baking in the sun and feeling virtuous: You're slathered with a sunscreen whose label sports a double digit SPF number. Good for you, right?-except that your sunscreen may be filtering out only a fraction of the sun's damaging rays. Slide4: In other words, while sunscreens can help keep you from burning, they only delay tanning-a slower form of sun damage. What's more, sun damage is cumulative: Lines, rough skin texture and blotches won't show up on your face for years. Fortunately, the word is out that tanned skin is sun-damaged skin. You'll get fewer wrinkles and blotches if you use a sunscreen. That's why sun protection products fly off the shelves, moisturizers with added sunscreen sell like hotcakes and women of all ages are sporting pale faces in August. And don't fall prey to the fallacy that dark skin is more immune to sun damage. Even African Americans, whose skin contains more melanin (the substance that gives its pigment and also causes it to tan), can get sun damage. For that matter, so can people of Mediterranean ancestry and others with moderate degrees of pigmentation. Slide5: A sunscreen's SPF, or Venorex Review sun protection factor, represents a multiple of the time you can stay in the sun without burning. If you burn within 15 minutes of being exposed to the sun with no protection, for example, wearing a sunscreen with SPF 15 would theoretically allow you to stay in the sin for 225 minutes (31/2 hours) before you started to burn. But sunscreens don't make sunning safe, because sunscreen alone won't keep the sun from aging your skin. You can still get sun-damaged even if you use a good sunscreen. The trouble is, the sun penetrates your skin through even the strongest sunscreens. It's simply a matter of time. You can spend a week in Florida, use a SPF 15 product and not show much of a tan. But stay there three or four weeks and you'll tan quite a bit. https://healthadviserpro.com/venorex-review/
