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 segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, Dr. Chanda Siddoo Atwal ‘Moondust’ talks about her text book contributions about what causes cancer.
What is APF?
APF stands for Apoptosis Protection Factor. It can help to prevent scientific sunburn, which is directly linked to skin cancer.
Avoiding sunburns and sun-related 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 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. 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.
