Summer & Skin Protection

Summer & Skin Protection
Advanced Dermatology’s Dr Sherry Ingraham breaks down the do’s and don’ts of Summer & skin protection on a recent appearance on Fox Houston.  From Sunscreen sprays & lotions to supplements…what you need to know to protect your and your families’ skin. She also talked about a new tool in the fight to protect your skin, Heliocare. Heliocare is an advanced herbal supplement that is known to prevent skin damage and skin cancer and offer tips on SPF protection.
 Every year, more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed. Advanced Dermatology’s priority is to bring awareness to prevention. 

Skin protection facts:
  • Continued exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is one of the major risk factors for photo-aging and the development of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). 
  • Mainstream sunscreens cannot ensure a complete protection against all molecular lesions associated with UVR exposure.
  • Heliocare being an oral form supplement works from the inside out, shielding your skin by acting as a sunscreen.  
  • Recent study finds that this “sunscreen pill” being added to your daily routine of sun protection regime will boost your regular sun protection.
  •  Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.  
  • Heliocare supplement works to gradually build up your body’s natural defense against damaging UV rays. 
  •  Although Heliocare tablets aid in preventing sun damage, they do not replace sunscreen. Dr. Sherry Ingraham recommends applying a topical sunscreen with SPF to maximize your defense for the best results.
  • Reapplying sunscreen is a necessary part of you skin’s health regimen. 
  • One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.
