While many of us are suckers for a balmy sun day, cumulative sun exposure can cause skin cancer. Luckily, you can prevent skin damage and skin cancer with the right products and protections! On this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show: Beauty & Style, we explore the science of sun protection, featuring Dr. Moondust, president of Moondust Cosmetics. In this special segment, she talks about her new skincare line with APF and caring for your skin in the sun.
What is APF?
APF stands for Apoptosis Protection Factor. It can help to prevent scientific sunburn, which is directly linked to skin cancer.
Getting a suntan and getting a sunburn are two separate physiological processes. Either you tan or you burn when you go in the sun. If you’re a person who burns easily in the sun, you should never go out during peak hours, which is 10am to 2pm. You should always wear a hat and protect your head and face, you should wear long sleeves and long pants or skirts to cover your arms and legs, never go barefoot and avoid sandals, and you need the right kind of skin protection.
