SUNSCREEN SHOULD INCLUDE UV-A PROTECTION SAYS DERMATOLOGIST When you select a sunscreen the last few years that UV-A Boer, iike many dermatolo- burn as easily, but they this summer, be sure that you're getting all the protec- tion you need against ultra- violet radiation, says a UCSF Stanford Health Care derma- tologist. Look for a product contain- ing ingredients that screen out both the short ultraviolet (UV-B) rays of the sun - long known to cause burning and cancer - as well as the longer ultraviolet (UV-A) rays, more recently found to be poten- tially harmful, says Dr. Alexa Boer, chief resident in derma- tology at Stanford Hospital and Clinics. Some new prod- ucts are available that offer improved protection against UV-A, she says. UV-A rays have been some- times called the "safe" solar rays. "But that's deceptive," Boer says. "We've found in rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UV-B, are more apt to cause long-term skin damage, including wrinkles, and can enhance the cancer- causing effects of the UV-B rays over time." "Sometimes it's hard to tell if your sunscreen protects adequately against both UV- A and UV-B. In general, you get the best UV-A protection from products with' titanium dioxide or a newer com- pound, avobenzone," Boer says. "A label that says 'UV protection' may mean only that you're getting UV-B protection. Look for labels that list both kinds," she says. The SPF ((sun protec- tion factor) number re- quired on the label of sun- screens refers to UV-B. gists, recommends using SPF15 or higher. The number is a guide to how long users can remain in the sun without burning. Actual safe exposure times vary widely depending on intensity of the sun and sen- sitivity of the skin, Boer notes. A deep tan is really your skin's response to injury. Healthy skin is pale and subsequently tends to be more wrinkle free. Per- sons with dark skin often don't too should use sunscreen to pro- tect against cancer and prema- ture skin aging, Boer says. If you feel self-conscious with- out a tan, your best alternative to burning, wrinkles, and the threat of cancer might just be to cover up in the sun and then, at night, apply makeup simu- lating a tan.
