Sunscreen: In every season, special things are needed to take care of the body. Warm clothes in winter, umbrella in rain and sunscreen in summer are considered the most important things. For the past few years, the use of sunscreen has started increasing, due to which its market is also flourishing. Now skin specialists recommend applying sunscreen even in winters.
But is sunscreen really safe for our skin? Often people buy some medicines for skin care by looking on the internet, which later show bad effects. It is obvious that this question must have come in the mind of some people whether it is really necessary to use sunscreen. Dermatologist in Metro Hospital, Noida Dr. Shazia Zaidi Opinions differ greatly. They say that sunscreen is essential for our skin.
Does Sunscreen Cause Cancer?
Questions have been raised many times regarding the safety of sunscreen, how safe is it? Dermatologist Dr. Shazia Zaidi says in response to this question that although a research paper had come about it, it was not valid. There has not been any case related to this even in India. Therefore it would be wrong to say that there is a risk of skin cancer from sunscreen.
Dr. Shazia says that instead it should be said that people who regularly apply sunscreen on the face, the risk of skin cancer can be reduced by up to 40 percent.
What to choose the right sunscreen?
Are we using the right sunscreen? Some people have been applying sunscreen only to avoid the ultraviolet rays of the sun, but they do not know what kind of sunscreen is beneficial for their skin. Dr. Shazia Zaidi says that whenever you go to buy sunscreen, buy it only after reading three things – SPF 30, water resistance, and broadspectrum. It is very important to have these three things in your sunscreen.
