Self-Care and Advances in Sun Protection

June 13 marks the European Day for Skin Cancer Prevention, a date dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of protecting our skin from sun damage and reducing the risk of developing skin cancer. This disease is one of the most easily preventable through the adoption of basic preventive measures. In this article, we will explore relevant statistics, the importance of self-care, prevention recommendations, and the innovative solutions that ADP Cosmetics offers in the field of sun protection and skincare.

Skin Cancer Statistics

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), between 2 and 3 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer and 132,000 cases of melanoma are diagnosed annually worldwide. In Europe, the incidence of melanoma has steadily increased over the past decades. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), approximately 144,000 new cases of melanoma were diagnosed in Europe in 2020, and this figure is expected to continue growing.

The Importance of Self-Care

Self-care is essential for skin cancer prevention. Early detection and the adoption of healthy habits can make a significant difference in reducing risk. The signs of skin cancer can be visible in very early stages, allowing for timely and effective treatment. The main risk factor is exposure to UV rays from the sun, making it crucial to adopt measures to protect our skin from this damage.

Self-Care Recommendations

To prevent skin cancer, it is essential to follow these recommendations:

  1. Use high SPF sunscreens: Apply generously and reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.
  2. Avoid direct sun exposure between 12 PM and 4 PM in summer: During this period, UV rays are most intense.
  3. Wear protective clothing: Use wide-brimmed hats, UV-protection sunglasses, and densely woven clothing that covers most of the body.
  4. Seek shade: Use umbrellas and avoid direct sun exposure for extended periods.
  5. Stay hydrated: Drinking water frequently helps keep the skin hydrated and healthy.
  6. Avoid using tanning beds: Exposure to artificial tanning beds significantly increases the risk of skin cancer.
  7. Perform regular skin self-exams: Monitor any changes in your skin marks, such as changes in color, size, shape, or texture. Consult a dermatologist for any warning signs.
