Spa Health: Under the Sunscreen

Brush up on the latest research, labeling and usage of SPF products and help clients make educated, skin-saving choices.

Despite increased awareness surrounding the importance of using sunscreen, melanoma rates are climbing. In fact, it’s the No. 1 cancer killer of women in their 20s, according to the Public Access to Sunscreens (PASS) Coalition, and one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in his or her lifetime.

Unfortunately, glacially paced approval of new sunscreen ingredients has resulted in ever-evolving regulations, less-than-perfect labeling, confusion and controversy when it comes to sun protection. Here, DAYSPA presents the latest information on SPF products so you can help your clients make smart choices when shielding their skin from the sun.
