How do I keep my skin looking young?

Over 90% of skin aging is due to the cumulative exposure to the sun. It has been known for many years that routine exposure to UV radiation is responsible for skin aging.

If anyone was in doubt that exposing your skin to the sun is the primary reason for skin aging, then a study undertaken in Australia by Monash University in 2017 should put the matter to rest.

Greg Goodman, a leading Australian dermatologist and adjunct professor at Monash University conducted the study along with his colleagues in the US and Singapore. 1,472 women took part in the academic research aged between 18-75 years old. The women who participated in the survey were asked to compare their facial features. Australians reported higher rates of change and significantly more facial lines than women from other countries.

Professor Goodman noted “Australian women reported more severe signs of facial aging... up to 20 years earlier than those in the USA".

The difference was attributed to cumulative UV exposure, Goodman added, “high UV levels put Australians at particular risk of photo-aging, especially when combined with Australians traditionally outdoor, sun-seeking lifestyle and predominantly fair-skinned population”

Your Story Series: Meet Katharine Stephens

This summer 2018, my mother, sister, and I went to our dermatologist for full body skin checks. It had been over a year since we had been and my mom thought it would be a good idea for all of us to get an exam. None of us had any particular spots we were concerned about or thought looked abnormal. The doctor, however, found a mole on my lower calf that she thought looked just a little different than the rest. She biopsied it and it came back as melanoma in situ — the earliest and most curable form of melanoma.

This blog highlights the fact that skiers are more at risk of sun exposure than people at similar altitudes in the summertime.
