How to Protect Your Skin in 3 Easy Steps with Clarins

As the strong winter weather approaches us, we lose the heat but keep the blinding strength of the sun. Although we cannot feel the heat of the sun, it does not mean it is not penetrating our skin and doing the same amount of damage. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer, one of the deadliest. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), men over the age of 50 are at an even greater risk of developing it. Your risk is also heightened if you’re caucasian.

If you’re sat reading this knowing you fall into any of these categories, read on to find out a few simple steps to protecting your skin.

To lower the risk of developing melanoma, follow these steps to protect yourself from those harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. When you’re outside, rain or shine:

  • Spent time in the shade
  • Cover your body with protective and appropriate clothing
  • Cover any exposed skin in sun cream with a protective factor of 30 or higher
  • Reapply the sun cream every two hours or more frequently if you’re sweating or swimming
  • Another alternative to sun cream is investing in moisturisers with built in SPF

It is also extremely important to avoid tanning beds at all costs, these are harmful sources of UV radiation.

Alongside these crucial details, it is also good to establish a daily skincare routine to protect your skin from the elements. Using Clarins Brand New Men’s Super Moisture Range you can do this in three quick and easy steps.

A monthly routine should be established to check over yourself and look for new or unusual miles, changes to existing moles or other changes to the colour and texture of the skin. Seek out the help of your partner if you can’t see those hard to reach places, or simply use a mirror. Ideally you should visit a dermatologist about once a year for a full-body skin check.
