(PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Hot Summer Days call for BBQ’s, pool parties and trips to the beach. All those activities sound harmless but the sun can affect people more than they realize. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 Americans suffer from sunburns yearly, which immediately raise the risk for skin cancer. What people don’t realize is that although they think they are protecting themselves by soaking their bodies in sunscreen prior to their water sports people tend to become clueless when it comes to the details. This is most likely the reason that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. wants to help rescue skin with sun-smart advice.

Protecting the skin has never been easier, all that’s needed is to remember multiples of five.

Five seconds is how quickly people can soothe their sunburn with a tea bag. Black tea bags contain compounds called tannins that act as an anti-inflammatory for the skin. It helps to minimize redness and aids in preventing peeling. It’s a fairly simple process, place a black tea bag in boiling water, allow it to cool and then dab it on the burn.

Five minutes is the time it takes the scalp to sizzle in the hot sun. What people do not realize is that the sun beats directly on the scalp which makes it one of the fastest places to obtain a burn. Six percent of melanoma cases happen on the scalp and neck. Before walking out the door spray the part of the hair, neck and back of the ears with a scalp protector.Bosley makes a great spray that is formulated solely to protect the scalp from the dangers of the sun.

Fifteen minutes is the time it takes sunscreen to jump into action. In order for sunscreen to work, people have to allow it penetrate into the skin. Make sure to apply sunscreen at least fifteen minutes prior to heading out the door.

Twenty minutes is how quickly people get sunburned on a gloomy day. Most people get tricked by overcast weather and tend not to lather on the sunscreen but up to 80 percent of UVA rays perforate through the clouds. Always protect the skin by keeping a hat in the car and consistently applying sunscreen.

Five years is the amount of time it takes someone who recurrently goes to tanning beds to develop skin cancer. It’s understandable that people enjoy a nice glow but it shouldn’t cost them their health. There are tons of alternatives to baking in tanning bed like, self tanners. TanTowel makes an easy to apply tanner that leaves the skin bronze and glowing so opt for something similar to that.

Protecting the skin is as easy as remembering multiples of five. Remembering the facts, 5 seconds, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes and 5 years can save lives!
