Sunscreen Prevents Melanoma?

Melanoma is the most serious of skin cancers, so much so that prevention is key. We know to use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, reduce sun exposure during sun intense times of the day, and if you’re fair skinned, stay out of the sun as much as humanly possible. Up until now, there was no research that proved sunscreen prevented melanoma. We’ve known sunburn can lead to melanoma, and sunscreen prevents sunburn, but not a direct correlation that sunscreen prevents melanoma. Enter the mouse model, a little 30 SPF sunscreen and UVB light which is the ultraviolet light that burns the skin.

Aloe Vera is such a great ready-to-use, natural topical to apply directly to a sunburn, which cools, soothes and heals your inflamed skin. The difficulty is letting the gel dry, and not getting it on your clothes, as well as cutting enough leaves to sufficiently treat a nasty sunburn if over a large area.

Aloe Vera gels or lotions purchased over the counter have varying amounts of true Aloe Vera in them, and always have additional ingredients that may or may not be helpful or healthy to sun damaged skin.
