Sunburn should come as no shock to anyone – its the SUNSHINE STATE. They made no secret of it. Its on the license plates, there is a big sign on the highway just south of the Georgia border! Yet every day, if you listen closely, just below the screaming sound of glee from a thrill park rider or VIP front row ticket holders - you can hear the sound of frying skin. Our bodies natural oils bubbling out of our pours. Our dermis drying up like sun dried tomatoes and turning a monstrous shade of red.
According to the CDC; Each year, nearly 5 million Americans are treated for skin cancer at a cost of about $8.1 billion. Yet most skin cancers can be prevented by avoiding too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or indoor tanning. To prevent this we all turn to the highest SPF sunscreen we can find. In fact – sales on sunscreen are well over 1.3 billion a year. Yet, fewer than 15% of men and 30% of women use sunscreen regularly on their face and other exposed skin when outside for more than one hour. And when they do use sunscreen, its loaded with chemicals that dry your skin, clog your pours and damage your cell in other ways. Not the best trade off!
