Year-Round Sun Protection

Year-Round Sun Protection.

Not something we necessarily think of at this time of year with all the cold, damp days we’ve been getting. But, when the sun IS out, it is worth thinking about sun protection. (I tend to use both sunscreen AND an SPF15 make-up as I don’t want to go through this again).  And, as you’ll see from this article, it’s important not to forget your ears, lips and neck.

It’s worth remembering that your skin can be ultra-sensitive to the sun whilst being treated with Efudex.  So, as it’s a fairly sunny day today, I’m going to be wearing a hat when I got out later.

Even though I’m only a couple of days into treatment, this whole process has made me really introspective. I find I’m spending lots of time trawling the internet to find out as much as I can about Basal Cell prevention and the latest research and thoughts -that’s how I came across the RSS feed I’ve attached to this blog.  The feed covers skin cancers in general – not just Basal Cells – and, as I had a small melanoma removed from my arm a number of years ago too, I’m reading it intently.
