Sunscreen No Longer Just for Summer Beach Reports Water and Dehydration Researcher Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

In our changing global environment, reports water and dehydration researcher Sharon Kleyne, sunscreen has become indispensable. According to Kleyne, sunscreen is no longer just for the summer beach. Kleyne recommends always applying sunscreen, summer or winter, before venturing outdoors in daytime.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on Voice American and Apple iTunes.

According to Kleyne, human skin is exposed to a growing list of dehydrating environmental factors. Dehydrated skin has less resistance to the damaging effects of the ultraviolet or “UV” component of solar radiation. At the same time, exposure to UV radiation is increasing worldwide Skin dehydration factors include low humidity – too little water vapor in the air – high air pollution, increasing drought, warmer summers, more sunshine, colder winters, ozone depletion, and indoor conditions such as forced-air heating and cooling and insulated walls and windows.

Based on 30 years of skin, water vapor and dehydration research, Sharon Kleyne offers the following information about sunscreen, sunburn and sun protection:

Sun protection limits the skin’s exposure to UV solar radiation that can cause skin cancer. Kleyne recommends a “broad spectrum” sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB. UVA does not cause sunburn but contributes to potentially fatal malignant melanoma. UVB exposure can lead to sunburn and squamous cell carcinoma. SPF or “sun protection factor” should be at least 15.

The best time to apply sunscreen, according to Kleyne, is immediately after bathing. Skin is best able to absorb sun protection chemicals, and is most naturally UV resistant, when moist and fully hydrated. The lotion also helps seal in and retain skin moisture. Kleyne recommends the use of sunscreen cosmetics, especially make-up foundation.

Keeping the body well hydrated, says Kleyne, is crucial to preventing skin dehydration and to increasing the skin’s ability to absorb solar radiation without damage. Kleyne recommends a minimum or eight glasses of water a day. In heat and bright sunlight, or when perspiring, much more water may be necessary. Dark green leafy vegetables also improve skin and eye health.

Don’t rely solely on sunscreen, Kleyne cautions. Wear sun protective clothing in bright sunlight in summer, and always wear at least a t-shirt at the beach. And remember that severe sunburn in childhood can cause malignant melanoma 50 years later.

The areas most vulnerable to dehydration and UV damage, according to Kleyne, are eyes, eyelids, facial skin, and the upper side of the hands and forearms. A quick and simple way to increase surface moisture content is to apply a pH correct, 100% water mist such as Nature’s Mist® or Nature’s Tears® EyesMist®. Both are products of Bio-Logic Aqua Research.

Sunscreen may decrease vitamin D production, which is also stimulated by the UV radiation in sunlight. A simple blood test can check for vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D supplements are readily available.
