Tips for Treatment & Prevention of Actinic Keratosis

  • Generously apply a broad spectrum sun blocker (one that covers against both UVA and UVB rays) that has a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 minimum, daily.
  • Remember to reapply sun cream after perspiring and swimming.
  • Avoid deliberate tanning. Even while wearing sun block, sunbathing will damage the skin.
  • Tanning beds and sunlamps are not safe choices because they also emit UV rays. So AVOID deliberate tanning.
  • Remain out of the sun between 10 a .m. and 4 p.m. This period is when the sun’s rays are at their strongest.
  • Look for shade. If you don’t see your shadow or your shadow is shorter than you, it is crucial to seek cover as the sun it at its peak.
  • Put on protecting clothing when you are on the sun, items like long sleeved tops and long legged pants will protect your skin from. Make sure that the material is not a loose knitted fabric as the suns UV rays will penetrate through clothing.
  • Wear sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection and a wide brimmed hat to protect the eyes and sensitive skin on the face.
  • The body needs to absorb vitamin D, however do this by simply following a healthy diet that includes vitamin supplements and avoid gaining the vital vitamin directly from the sun.
  • Be extra careful when near water, snow and sand; the reflection of the UV rays is just as dangerous and damaging as absorbing the suns rays directly.
