Most Common Mistake Made When Applying Sunscreen

www.dermtv.com Concealer. Cleanser. Sunscreen. Blush. Moisturizer. The list of ointments and makeup that women can apply to their face goes on and on, and the order in which they should be applied isn’t so intuitive. Should you apply your sunscreen first or last? What about everything else? Dr. Schultz will explain the proper order for applying everything and why. Transcription The most common mistake that women make in using their sunscreen is not putting it on first on their skin before their moisturizer and their make-up. Many women think, and I understand, that if their sunscreen is closer to the sun on top of their other products, then it will work better and protect them better from the sun. But the reality is, for sunscreens to work, they have to be the first thing applied to the skin because they have to bind to the skin, and there’s a chemical reaction that occurs that makes the sunscreen effective. So please put your sunscreen on first, then apply your moisturizer and then apply your make-up.

Don’t let the heat stop you from being active

July 21, 2010 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

Heart health and extreme heat do not go well together. And this summer, we are experiencing a heat wave. Under such circumstances, we cannot blame people if they’d rather stay at home and stay sedentary. However, do not let the summer heat beat us. We still need physical exercise regardless of the heat outside. Here are some tips on how to stay active this summer. I compiled this from recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) as well as from my own experience.

Here is what the AHA recommends:

Here are the things that I do to keep active:

Go for a walk or run early in the mornings or evenings. I normally jog during my lunch break. But in this summer heat, this isn’t possible anymore. I now go early mornings, just before 8 am, as soon as my kids go off to school. Even though I’d rather get an early start with my work, I rearranged my schedule to accommodate a 30-minute run each morning. Luckily, as a self-employed, I can be flexible.

Last April, while on holidays in tropical Asia, a morning jog on the beach and an evening stroll under stars were a great way to beat the tropical heat.

Take the stairs. When I had to go on client visits or shop at a mall, I try to take two to three flights of stairs rather than take the lift or the escalator.

Go to the forest or up the mountains. There was a day last week when an early run wasn’t possible. So I did my run at noon – in the forest. You would be surprised how trees and their shade can make a difference. On the weekends, we go hike in areas of higher altitude (thus cooler temperatures) but also in wooded areas. Last week we had this beautiful walk at 800 m above sea level, which is still low by Swiss standards but was cool enough. We aim to go higher this weekend.

Swim in the lakes and rivers. After the walk last weekend, we ended up bathing in the nearest river. The cold water flowing down from the mountains were so refreshing and would beat water from any pool anytime. We are lucky that Swiss lakes and rivers are so clean!

Take note that there are some indoor skiing areas in some countries. If you live in one of these countries (example: Dubai), then this is your chance to start learning how to ski.

Go to the gym. When everything else fails, the gym is still your best bet. Again, in tropical Asia a couple of months ago, this was the only option to stay active while staying in the big cities. And I almost invariably go for the treadmill and the pedometer.

Heat is not an excuse for being sedentary. Let’s get moving, no matter what.

Have an active summer (despite the heat!)

August 3, 2009 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

950189_sunflower_smilesResource post for the summer

Summer, summer, here it comes. School vacation has started. Warm days and warm nights. The summer heat can have an effect on your cardiovascular health. According to the American Heart Association (AHA)

Exercising outside in hot and humid conditions can be hard on your heart. This is true even for athletes who haven’t yet adapted to the heat. The problem is made worse because the heart is trying to deliver blood and oxygen to your working muscles while your body is trying to cool off by sweating. If you sweat too much, you lose fluid. This decreases your total blood volume. That means your heart has to pump even harder to get the smaller volume of blood to your working muscles, skin and the other body parts. When you lose too much fluid, your body temperature rises and your nervous system doesn’t work properly. Extreme fluid loss can lead to brain and heart damage.

Stay active in the summer

However, we shouldn’t use the summer heat as an excuse to stop exercising and become sedentary. This, too, is not good for the heart. The AHA gives the fgymnastollowing tips for staying active, safe and heart healthy even when it’s hot scorching outside.

  • Take up indoor sports, e.g. squash, basketball, aerobics
  • Go to the gym and work out in an air conditioned room.
  • Go swimming.
  • Go for a walk – at the mall.
  • Go ice skating.

Stay active indoors

I have friends living in Dubai, and every summer, the schools are closed for three months because the desert heat is just unbearable and a health hazard for the children. However, the residents of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) are very creative and came up with ways to keep people active but not overheated in the summer – indoors, of course.

  • Swimming. There are lots of indoor water theme parks out there where you can around the whole and stay cool.
  • Malling. The malls out there are huge, with play grounds and soft areas for playing. Perfect for mall walking.
  • Working out at the gym. You can even practice your skiing and snowboarding moves with the snow and the gear – doing special workouts.
  • Ice skating/skiing. Yes, you can ski in the middle of the summer in Dubai. No, I am not talking about skiing in the sand dunes. I am talking about real snow and real alpine atmosphere. Ski Dubai in Dubai Emirates Mall opened its indoor slopes end of 2005, supposedly “the world’s third largest indoor ski slope, measuring 400 meters and using 6000 tons of snow.” Another indoor skiing resort is under construction.

Stay active outdoors

We live in Switzerland and although we don’t suffer as much from high temperatures compared to our friends in the U.A.E., we do get heat waves from time to time. So how do we deal with the heat? We go out! You see, air conditioning is not very common in this part of the world so that staying indoors can be… well …hot.

  • We go swimming in the pools, in the lakes, in the rivers. Despite the fact that Switzerland is landlocked, and therefore doesn’t have a coastline, there are children3plenty of natural water bodies for swimming. This includes the lake and the two rivers flowing through Zurich, the country’s biggest city. Believe me, the water is clean! For those who live away from the lake, almost every little town has a swimming pool. From where we live, we have about 6 public swimming pools within an 8-km periphery to choose from, just the perfect distance for cycling. The pools usually have trees to provide shade for those who just want to laze around.
  • We go to the mountains. Now, you think mountain hiking is not exactly what you’d like to do in the summer heat. Well, it’s definitely much cooler up there although the UV rays are also much stronger so sunscreen is a must. Of course we sweat. But there’s always a lake or a river to jump in and cool down.
  • We go to the forest. The more trees there are, the cooler it is. Cool enough that we even dare to barbecue in the summer heat. There are specially designated places for grills and picnics. However, beware of tick-infested areas!
  • We drink. In most of the parks, mountain paths, and forests, there are drinking fountains strategically located for bikers, hikers, and walkers to refill their water bottles. Again, you have the guarantee that the water is potable. And if you pass by a farmhouse, chances are, there’s an easy accessible fridge outside where you can grab a cold glass of fresh milk. Help yourself and drop a coin in the cash box.

And skiing? Oh yes, there is enough snow on highest mountain peaks but we leave that to the Swiss national skiing team who need to practice the whole year round. Skiing for the mere mortals is for winter – outdoors.

So how about you? How do you beat the summer heat? How do you stay active in the summer?

Summer health risks: are they for real?

July 20, 2009 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

summerSummertime is really here. School vacation has already started. And though it’s nice and warm in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, it can be scorching hot in others. So you want to spend time outdoors and get a little exercise. But what to do in the unbearable heat of the summer? First of all, we are warned of the dangers that come with summer and these are:

  • Sunburns
  • Dehydration
  • Heat strokes
  • Summer infections
  • Insect bites
  • Burns from barbecue and bush fires
  • Lighting strikes

However, despite all the warnings we see, hear and read, people shouldn’t be scared of venturing out and be active in the summertime. According to WebMD, the chances of fatality due to these summer health risks are slim. In fact, the following figures from the National Safety Council give us an idea of the actual risks:

The Danger Lifetime Odds
Death by car accident 1 in 228
Drowning death 1 in 1,081
Bicycle accident death 1 in 4,857
Death by excessive natural heat 1 in 10,643
Death by lightning 1 in 56,439

 

Traffic accidents

You’d think that because of the favorable weather conditions in summer that there’d be less vehicular accidents. Well, actually it is the nice weather conditions that make more people venture out and travel with the car, that make people drive faster than usual, that make more people drive less carefully. Related to traffic accidents are bicycle accidents. Cycling is a popular summer sport and accidents can lead to head injuries that are fatal due to non-wearing of helmet.

Drowning

It is not surprising that the risk of drowning ranks second after traffic accidents. Swimming pools, lakes, rivers and the ocean are popular summer destinations.  It is estimated that at least 3,000 people drown in the US each year. Children under 5 drown more often in swimming pools, especially the family pool, rather than in the natural water bodies. More adults drown in the sea due to undertows, strong rip currents, and boating accidents. The U.S. Coast Guard recorded more than 5,700 boating accidents in 2002, causing 4,062 injuries and 750 deaths.

Excessive heat

Heat waves occur sporadically and excessive natural heat can only lead to death as a consequence of dehydration, heat strokes, and exacerbation of underlying chronic conditions such as heart disease and hypertension. This is, however, highly preventable. The key is drink, drink, and drink and stay out of the midday sun.

Summer infections and diseases

There are some infections associated with some, many of which are food-borne or insect-borne. In the US, the West Nile virus is spread by mosquitoes, whereas spoiled meat at the grill leads to food poisoning.

Rare but well-publicized risks

Lightning strikes and shark attacks are summer risks that are very unlikely to happen. However, when they do, they tend to get publicized and cause unnecessary alarm to the public.
According to National Safety Council spokesman John Ulczycki

“The topical rather than the important hazards tend to get the most attention. People may misinterpret or misunderstand where the real risk is.”

So let’s not use all the summer health risks we hear to refrain from being active this summer. We have to take care but we don’t have to be scared.

To put things into perspective….

“… for every one unfortunate who met his end in the jaws of a shark, at least 1,000 drowned; and while 201 people nationwide died of West Nile infection in 2002, car crashes killed nearly 43,000.

Coming next: ways of staying active despite the summer heat.

Jogging in summer time: the little annoyances

May 21, 2009 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

sports-shoesEarlier this year, I shared with you some of the problems I’ve encountered when jogging in the winter time. Nowadays, the weather is more inviting so that you don’t have to drag yourself to go for a jog, run or walk. Still, jogging in spring/summer also does have its problems, albeit little ones, which I present below.

Sun

The sun is your best friend and worst enemy. It provides life-essential vitamin D but its UV rays can also cause damage to the eyes and skin. As a jogger, I try to do my runs in the summertime early in the morning or late in the evening when the sun’s UV rays are not so intense. However, there are days when a lunch break jog is the only thing possible. For this, I use physical as well as chemical sun protection. Physical protection is in the form of a cap and sunglasses. For chemical protection, I use sunscreen. Check these links for more information about how to choose the right sunglasses and the right sunscreen.

Dehydration

Dehydration is a big risk when running in the summer heat especially if you are running for long stretches. It is advisable that you carry a water bottle. In my case, I don’t carry one when jogging basically because I run on familiar stretches where I know the location of water fountains. That is the great thing about living in Switzerland. Whether you are walking in the city or hiking/cycling up in the mountains, there are always free-flowing water fountains with potable water where you can drink and have a refill

Pollen

This one is my biggest problem yet. Just when the spring blossoms are gone, the fields have turned yellow with rape seed flowers and everything – especially the air – is covered with yellow dust – rape seed pollen. I am not asthmatic but I am a bit sensitive to certain types of pollen. So what do I do? I try to avoid running in the vicinity of the rape seed fields. If I have to, then I do when it’s raining or immediately after it has rained. If the worse come to worst, I can always wear a surgical mask.

Blisters

Last summer, it was so warm that I decided to run without socks. This turned out to be a big mistake because my very comfortable running shoes became a blister monster. In the end, it all depends on the shoes, the sensitivity of your feet, the surface you are running on, and well – your running style. I’ve learned my lesson. Running with socks are best – at least for me.

Insects

There I was running, taking deep breaths through my mouth – and got a foul-tasting insect in my throat. Insects are one of the annoyances of running in the summer time. You simply have to put up with them. I know that in some places where flies as especially numerous, joggers/runners run with surgical masks on. So you see, masks are not just for swine flu protection.

Sweat

My MP3 player conked out again today but I can’t blame the temperature. To be more precise, the MP3 player was OK but the earphones weren’t because they got wet from my sweat. However, they worked again once they dried. I wonder, are there waterproof earphones available?

So these are just some of the little annoyances I’ve experience during my regular jogging runs. Why don’t you share yours with us?

Summer is coming: how to prevent and check for melanoma

May 6, 2009 by  
Filed under CANCER

sunflower_fieldResource Post for May

In preparation for the summer season, there are health observances in May that are focusing on awareness about skin cancer.

May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month and May 4 was Melanoma Monday and sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).

Identifying melanoma

It is estimated that 1 million cases of skin cancer is diagnosed in the US each year. About one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Of all types of skin cancers, melanoma is the most deadly, commonly affecting young adults aged 25 to 29 years of age.

Melanoma is characterized by pigment-producing cells that grow and reproduce uncontrollably. It may suddenly on the skin or may develop on an existing mole. According to researchers at St. Louis University, the identifying signs of melanoma are:

Who is at risk of developing melanoma?

Current guidelin1045672_cheeky_monkey_2es recommend regular screening for skin cancer, especially those at high risk for the disease. The risk factors include

  • People older 40 years of age
  • People with a fair complexion
  • People who sunburn easily
  • People who have many moles
  • People with a personal or family history of skin cancer
  • People who spend long periods of time exposed to the sun
  • People exposed to UV radiation at recreation or the work place, e.g. use of tanning salons, sunbathing, etc.

However, just because you are of the dark-haired, dark-skinned type, and you never sunburn easily doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry about UV radiation. According to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR), certain variants of the MC1R gene increase the melanoma risk of people who are normally of low risk profile by almost two-fold. The study was presented by researchers from the Pennsylvania University.

How do we prevent skin cancer?

Here are simple tips on skin cancer prevention.

Use sunblock. It is advisable to use sun protection, even in children. Regular use of sunblock during the first 18 years of one’s life can reduce the lifetime risk by 78%. Use sunscreens whicsuncreamh blocks UV A as well as UV B radiation. For it to be effective, a sunscreen must have a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15.

Stay out of the midday sun. UV radiation is strongest at midday. Enjoy th early morning or late afternoon sun instead.

Have regular skin cancer screenings. Free skin cancer screenings are being offered by health and advocacy groups. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) offers free screening all over the US. You can request a notification from the AAD when there is a scheduled screening within a 50-mile radius from where you live. You can also send an eCard to family and friends to help spread awareness on skin cancer and inform about free screenings.

Do a self-check for skin cancer. By using the abovementioned signs for melanoma, you can check yourself and your family for suspicious pigmentation. The AAD also gives us instructions on how to perform a skin self-exam.

Avoid suntanning beds. Even artificial UV rays from suntanning lamps and beds can cause skin cancer.

The latest research news on skin cancer

Researchers from St. Louis Unisunbedversity report on the effectiveness of a topical cream in treating certain melanoma. The researchers used the cream imiquimod in treating lentigo maligna (LM) which the most common type of melanoma of the head and neck. LM is “a type of “melanoma-in- situ”, the earliest stage of melanoma [which] precedes the more invasive form, lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM).” Imiquimod was used in conjunction with surgery. Skin surgery removed the invasive area while the topical cream was applied in the surrounding area. The cream supposedly can supposedly limit the area of surgery as well as minimize disfigurement and the risk of recurrence.

According to lead researcher Dr. Scott Fosko, chairman of the department of dermatology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine

“As we’re seeing melanoma in younger and younger people, in their 30s and 40s, there is a longer window for the cancer to return and a greater desire to avoid disfiguring surgery…This subtype of melanoma is becoming more and more common, and can be one of the more challenging melanomas to manage”.

In lab tests, researchers at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center demonstrated that that the yellow spice curcumin which is also found turmeric and curry powder seems to be able to block the pathway to melanoma development.
