In this BONUS REPLAY episode of The New Old You, my friend Marla Bobrow and I are doing one of those old fashioned The More You Know type PSAs as we head into the late spring and summer months. We are talking about Skin Cancer, including:
- What it is
- Where and why you get it
- Some science of UV rays
- How it's found and personal procedures to remove it
- What are your risks
- Tips on preventing it
As we age, getting yearly regular screenings is something that should be done, just like your mammogram and yearly exam. The skin is your largest organ and we need to keep an eye on it because no one is immune to skin cancer. We all have done things in our past to abuse our skin and we want to make sure to take care of it and keep an eye on it as we age.
Some tips we'll talk about:
1. Wearing Sunscreen - What SPF? What kind?
2. What times you should not be in direct sun
2. Wearing a hat - What kind?
3. Sunproofing your car
4. Wearing sunglasses
5. Wearing long sleeve and sun protective clothing
6. Eating right - antioxidants to help reduce cell damage
7. Knowing your risk for skin cancer
8. Find a dermatologist and getting yearly screenings
All thanks to Marla for coming on and telling us about her personal experience with skin cancer. It's not something you think about happening to you, until it does. And you can start to avoid it RIGHT NOW.
