Caffeine in Skin Care Lowers Risk of Skin Cancer

A couple of years ago, skin cancer research showed the possibility that caffeine applied directly to the skin reduced the amount of a particular protein that caused UV damaged skin cells to turn cancerous. In Caffeine in Skin Care May Protect from Skin Cancer, I share the findings of these past studiesNow there is new evidence that is showing stronger evidence of the anticancer effects of topically applied caffeine.

According to the National Cancer Institute, sunlight-induced skin cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the United States with more than 1 million new cases each year.

With skin cancer becoming increasingly prevalent, especially in the younger age groups, the findings of topically applied caffeine showing evidence of decreasing the development of skin cancers is very important.

A new Rutgers study strengthens the theory that caffeine guards against certain skin cancers at the molecular level by inhibiting a protein enzyme in the skin, known as ATR. Scientists believe that based on what they have learned studying mice, caffeine applied directly to the skin might help prevent damaging UV light from causing skin cancer.”

NOW is the time to start using skin care products that contain Caffeine.  Having soaked up more than my share of sun rays during my teenage years, I have already developed a few basal cell carcinomas (nonmelanoma skin cancer). Since I have been using caffeine containing skin care, no new ones have developed over the past three years and counting!

I am using Apriori Beauty’s Products – of which almost EVERY product contains caffeine!

The Day Defense Plus Day Moisturizer also has sun protection factor 25, as well as the Perfecting Powder Protection of 15 and Perfecting Protectors protection of 30.

Caffeine might become a weapon in prevention because it inhibits ATR and also acts ad as a sunscreen and directly absorbs damaging UV light,” said Conney, Director of the Susan Lehman Cullman Laboratory for Cancer Research.
