May is Melanoma Awareness Month, and Uriage is calling on the public to adopt safe behaviour in the sun when abroad as well as in Ireland. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland with over 1,000 new cases diagnosed year, and on average 159 people dying annually. Cases of melanoma have almost trebled in the last 20 years. With the aid of Uriage’s SPF ranges for adults and children, be sure to adopt sensible habits to protect the whole family against sun damage.
Thermal Spring Water is the key ingredient unique to the Uriage dermatological skincare range and it is the basic ingredient in all of the Uriage product ranges. Uriage is the richest Thermal Water, with the highest concentration of minerals and trace elements 52 x richer than other Thermal Water available.
UV rays come in two forms – UVA and UVB. UVA rays make up over 90% of the sun’s rays. They have a longer wavelength than UVB, allowing them to reach deeper within the skin. They pass through cloud, glass and water. These rays are responsible for Ageing of the skin and play a significant role in the development of skin cancer. UVB rays do not penetrate skin so deeply: they cause the skin to burn, cause eye damage and also play a role in the development of skin cancers.
Children’s skin is different from adults, it is very sensitive to sunlight. It is important to remember that a significant of sun damage to the skin is received before we reach the age of 20. The fact that children’s immune system is still developing throughout childhood may play a role in increasing the risks associated with sun exposure and skin cancer late in life.
