Asian Skin Whitening – Beauty And The Bleach How To Bleach Your Skin Skin Whitening Home Remedies Getting Rave Reviews Huffington Post- Top Anti-Aging Portal NHS UK – Skin Lightening Risks WebMD – Brighten Up Skin Wikipedia – Skin Bleaching Treatments Just want to reinforce here that some of the following information reflect my personal views on how to use sunscreen safely. My thoughts on the subject does not constitute medical advice in any way. I start off with this proviso because my feelings on the topic goes slightly against the grain of popular medical opinion. It’s an alternative view that has worked out for me thus far. Hopefully, by the end of the article, you’ll have a more balanced view of the subject. However, I do urge you to consult your physician first, should you wish to follow my approach. If you intend on using a skin whitening product, the following information is even more important for you to grasp. This is because people who want lighter skin are more inclined to avoid sun exposure and hence miss out on the protective health benefits sun exposure provides. The American Association Of Dermatology ( AAD) advocates the daily use of at least a broad spectrum Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30 sunscreen for all skin types. Broad spectrum means you’ll get protection from against UVAand UVB rays. arbutin acne antioxidants Babassu bleaching calomel Clarins CoEnzy me Q1 0 collagen Crodamol OP Eden Diaz elastin Estee Lauder extrapone nutgrass freckles free radicals grape seed oil hy aluronan hy aluronic acid hy aluronidase hydroquinone keratin kojic acid licorice extract L’Oreal melanin melanocy tes mercuric mercurio mercurous mercury microdermabrasion natural whitening day cream phy tessence wakame retinoic acid skin brighetner skin lightening cream skin whitener Skin Whitening Forev er Book skin whitening home remedies steroids sun v itamin E whiter skin Xtendlife WP Cumulus Flash tag cloud by Roy Tanck requires Flash Play er 9 or better. The AAD also suggest your SPF lotion be water-resistant or waterproof. The FDAconsiders a product “water-resistant” if it maintains its SPF level after 40 minutes of exposure to the water. Aproduct is considered “waterproof” if it maintains its SPF level following 80 minutes of water exposure. ASPF cream helps to protect you from sunburn, premature skin aging and skin cancer. As a matter of fact, the AAD believes that if a greater portion of the population used sunscreen daily, the incidence of skin cancer would fall. So case closed right? We should all use ASPF cream. Well – yes and no! The problem is that most people are using the wrong type of SPF sunscreen – a problem that could be causing some serious health problems. Furthermore, it is my view that many people are over-using sunscreen and hence inhibiting the very important health benefits of sunshine. More on these benefits later. converted by Web2PDFConvert.com

Most people use chemical sunscreens. These are ones that contain active ingredients such as Avobenzone, Helioplex, Homosalate, Mexoryl SX and XL, Octylcrylene, Octinoxate, Octisalate, Oxybenzone, Tinosorb S and M, Uvinul T 150, Uvinul APlus and 4-MBC. Yes – they give you protection against sun exposure but many of these ingredients are known as endocrine disruptors. Once applied to the skin, they seep into the body and can cause birth defects, learning disabilities and low sperm count. There is also a school of thought amongst scientists that says that the long term use of these chemicals may prove to be carcinogenic. Some studies have shown that these chemicals cancer in lab mice. Some opponents claim that the results of those studies doesn’t necessarily mean that humans will get cancer from using chemical sunscreen. But I personally believe that where there is smoke there is fire. It is not only one study that has linked the chemicals in the cosmetics to a higher incidence of cancer and other diseases. Now, I really hope that with time comes definitive scientific research that shows that the link between endocrine disruptors and cancer in humans is tenuous. But until then, why play Russian Roulette with your life especially when there are safer alternatives to chemical sunscreens. More on these safer alternatives later. No question about it, sunshine plays a critical role in the body that sunscreen appears to inhibit. Exposure to the sun is the primary source of vitamin D production. Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that has an influence on virtually all cells in your body. And get this, it is easily one of mother nature’s most powerful powerful anti-cancer warriors. Receptors that respond to vitamin D are located in almost every kind of human cell, from your bones to your brain. Your organs convert the vitamin D in your bloodstream into calcitriol, which is the hormonal or activated version of vitamin D. Your organs then use calcitriol to fix damage, including damage from cancer cells and tumors. Here are a couple of specific ways in which Vitamin D fights cancer: => It accelerates the self-destruction of mutated cells. If those cells are allowed to multiply – the result could be cancer. => It lessens the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning into cancerous cells. => It lessens the spread and reproduction of cancer cells Astudy conducted by Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., internationally famous research scientist and expert on vitamin D, found that one in three cancer deaths could be prevented annually with greater vitamin D levels! This comes up to about – 2 million deaths globally and around 200,000 deaths in America that could have been averted. Vitamin D also strengthens bones and the immune system. Apublished in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism revealed that a whopping 59% of the population is vitamin D deficient. Additionally, nearly 25 percent of the study subjects were found to have extremely low levels of vitamin D. Breast-fed infants, people with darker complexion and people who limit their exposure to the sun are at greater risk of Vitamin D deficiency. If you are healthy, sun exposure is all you need to get adequate Vitamin. That said, food items However, there are groups of people, such as post-menopausal women and people with kidney disease, that may need Vitamin D supplementation. If you are healthy, be careful of over-supplementing on Vitamin D. There comes a point taking too much Vitamin D serves no additional health benefit and is hence, a waste of money. Furthermore, over supplementation has been linked to hardening of the blood vessels and greater risk of cardiovascular problems. To get optimal levels of Vitamin D, experts recommend exposing large portions of your skin to 10-20 minutes worth of sunshine daily. I have read where darker skinned people may require around six times converted by Web2PDFConvert.com

longer exposure than lighter skinned people but more research is needed on this. My suggestion would be consult your physician as to how much sun exposure you need and have him/her test your Vitamin D levels. From there, you’ll know whether or not you need seasonal or year long Vitamin D supplementation. If there were no good alternatives to chemical sunscreen, we’d be in trouble. But thank God, there are great alternatives, called “physical sunblock” or “inorganic sunblock” or ‘”mineral sunblock.” These sunblocks don’t contain the endocrine disruptors as active ingredients Their active ingredients are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (rocks essentially) that are ground up to a fine consistency. Once applied to the skin, this cream stays on top of the skin and reflects the sun. This is why creams like these are often referred to as “sunblock” as opposed to “sunscreen.” Sunblocks don’t seep through the skin and into your body (to cause potential damage) as chemical sunscreens do. Mineral sunblock offers broad spectrum protection and are less likely to cause skin irritation. However, cheaper versions of this type of sunblock leaves a visible white film on the skin once applied. For this reason, many people don’t like them. Think football players or cricketers you often see with that white stuff across their noses and under their eyes. However, newer zinc oxide sunblocks contain micronized particles. These particles are so tiny that they are transparent. This means that applying a micronized sunblock doesn’t leave that unsightly white film on the skin. I strongly suggest you read the Environmental Working Group guide on sunscreen. It is a real eye-opener on the benefits, myths and dangers of suncreen, The site also suggests and rates popular mineral sunblocks on the market. The whole point of using a skin whitening product is to of lighten your skin. So the last thing you’d want is for the sun to darken areas that you are trying to lighten. It would make sense to use a sunblock to prevent sunburn. So based on the information provided above, I’d recommend you use a broad spectrum mineral sunblock if you are going to be out in the sun for a long period. You could also wear a broad brimmed hat and protective clothing to help prevent over exposure to the sun. If you work indoors or if there are particular days where you tend to stay indoors, then I don’t see the necessity of using sunblock on those days. Certainly, limiting sun exposure by staying inside could also help your skin whitening lotion work faster. But bear in mind that you ought to be getting your daily dose of sunshine for optimal Vitamin D levels. How many people are over exposed to the sun in a normal day? How many people get sunburned during a normal day unless they are at the beach or spend a long time outside? For me, the answer is not many. Most people work or spend a high percentage of their time inside. If you are using a skin whitening product, use a mineral sunblock as well only if you are going to be in the sun for protracted periods. But don’t neglect getting enough sunshine and risk robbing yourself of the amazing health benefits healthy sun exposure provides. Like Share 2 people like this. Sign Up to see what your friends like.
