Three Seldom Reported Summer Sun Safety Tips Discovered By Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne
Date:8/22/2014

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

A recent widely circulated news article contains a list of “Five tips for summer sun safety.” Sharon Kleyne, international water advocate and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water completely agrees with the five tips but adds three additional tips that she believes are less obvious and seldom mentioned but equally important.

Sharon Kleyne is the Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a global research and technology center specializing in and fresh water, the atmosphere and the effects of dehydration. Natures Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eyes. Nature’ Mist® Face of the Water® is their product for dry or sunburned skin. Kleyne’s globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show is heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

The five original tips are (1) Use sunscreen, (2) wear protective clothing, (3) cool off in the shade, (4) use extra caution near water and sand and (5) skip the tan.

Kleyne’s three additional tips are: (1) Hydrate before and during sun exposure, (2) keep sunburns moist and (3) learn to recognize skin cancer.

Hydrate before and during sun exposure. Sun exposure and perspiration are both dehydrating to the body and most experts advise drinking extra water after sun exposure to, to replenish the body’s depleted water supply. Kleyne recommends drinking extra water before sun exposure as well. Solar and UV radiation, Kleyne explains, are dehydrating to skin, causing it to lose water and become dry. If skin is dehydrated before exposure to the sun, the dehydrating effects of exposure will be intensified. Human skin is 70 percent water.

The best way to keep skin hydrated, according to Kleyne, is to keep the body hydrated. However, there is a significant time gap between drinking water and the water reaching the skin’s lower layers. That’s why early preparation is advised. So prepare early. Some lost skin water can be replaced with an all water surface mist application, with a product such as Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®.

Kleyne recommends drinking at least eight full glasses of pure fresh water per day in addition to all other fluid intake. Begin with two full glasses upon rising and be aware that cold water is less completely absorbed than warmer water.

Be sure to drink water and or mist frequently during sun exposure as well as prior to sun exposure.

Keep sunburns moist. Skin that is well hydrated prior to sun exposure, according to Kleyne, will not burn as quickly or as severely as skin that is too dry prior to sun exposure. Sunburn is further dehydrating. Keeping the skin surface hydrated with baths or a water mist while the sunburn is healing not only soothes and cools, it speeds healing. And if a burn heals faster, permanent skin cell damage is less likely. This is life and death information, according to Kleyne, because deep sunburns early in life can, decades later, turn into malignant melanoma, a fast moving and often fatal cancer.

Learn to recognize skin cancer. The three major skin cancers, Kleyne notes, are basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. There are many others that are less common. The two carcinomas do not spread and are not fatal but if not removed early, they can be locally disfiguring. Melanoma is easily curable if caught early but one in five cases, about 55,000 per year, prove fatal.

Carcinoma occurs most often on the face, hands and arms, according to Kleyne. Melanoma most often occurs on the shoulders in men and legs in women. All humans are susceptible but the most susceptible are people of northern European descent living in sunny climates. Australia has the highest melanoma rate.        

Melanoma tumors tend to be irregularly shaped, multi colored, dark or black in color, rapidly growing and extremely unattractive. If you notice one on your body, Kleyne warns, see a doctor immediately.
