Skin Moles do not usually come back once they have been removed. However sometimes in certain cases a skin mole may re-occur.
There are a few things you can do to try to prevent that the skin moles do not come back after removal. First it is important to heed all the advice given by your physician. It may also help however if you nurture good habits. Off course there is not a 100% formula but doing you part may help a lot.
Skin Moles have been linked to direct and indirect sunlight. Take precautions whenever you go outside, whether for a short or prolonged period. Not only does sunlight may cause skin moles, but it can increase wrinkles and other signs of aging.
The sun shines down two different types of rays. These are ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B. Both kinds are harmful to the skin and can eventually cause cancer. Tanning bends typically use ultraviolet A rays. Though these take a bit longer to do their damage, they are nonetheless harmful.
Many people associate sun damage with the summer time. However, winter sunlight can be just as dangerous. If you have ever seen someone who skis or spends time outside during the winter, you know this can be true. When there is snow on the ground, the sun's rays can reflect off of the sun causing even more damage.
When one is in the water, it reduces the sun's rays slightly. However, the protection you get is not nearly significant enough to justify no other methods of protection. Sand and water, like snow, can reflect the rays and cause more damage.
The sunlight can get to your skin through clouds and even a few feet of water. In fact, up to 80% of the sun's rays can get through clouds or water.
Since water can wash off or render sunscreen completely ineffective, it is imperative that sunscreen is applied very often. In addition, you can minimize your exposure to harmful rays by carefully planning your activities. Between 10:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon, the sun is at its strongest. Clouds or an overcast day offer no protection against these rays.
Shade can save you a lot of exposure without hampering your activities. Consider planning your activities around some natural shade or an umbrella. Covering your skin will also protect you from the sun's harm. Large hats can protect your head and neck. Long sleeves and long plants are a very effective barrier as well. Consider a light and flowing fabric to deal with the heat.
When purchasing sunglasses, look for those that are designed to block against harmful rays. Many inexpensive pairs offer no UV ray protection whatsoever. Sunglasses that do protect against these rays should have a label or some other indicator that they do protect against these rays.
As mentioned earlier, diligent application of sunscreen can protect your skin against both types of harmful rays. You should seek a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30. (For those of you that have wondered, SPF stands for sun protective factor).
Do not be stingy with the sunscreen and do not be afraid to reapply often. It is rendered ineffective after some heavy sun exposure and can easily wash off in the pool or even be washed off by sweat. A good general rule is to reapply sunscreen once an hour if you are swimming or working heavily outside.
The sun can penetrate clothing, so try to take a two-pronged defense by wearing protective clothing and utilizing sunscreen. Clothing that has a very tight weave is more protective that stretchy or elastic clothing.
The sun is extremely harmful to children and most of us make sure to lair our children in sunscreen. But never forget your own skin protection as well, no matter what your age, the sun can be very harmful.
