Skin Cancer and Sun Damage

Maintaining Good Skin Care

  • UVA and UVB rays damage skin all year round and penetrate through glass (e.g. while you are driving). Apply VITAGE SPF30 all year round on face, hands and any part of the body exposed.
  • UV is strongest under a cloudless sky and between 11.00am – 3.00pm but you can still burn on a cloudy day and after these times, especially in summer, so find some shade and re apply VITAGE SPF30.
  • Avoid sun beds. They emit mainly UVA and UVB radiation, dehydrating and ageing skin; excessive use may lead to skin cancer.
  • Wear UV blocking sunglasses, a tightly-woven, long-sleeved shirt to protect your arms and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face and neck.
  • Apply VITAGE SPF30 to your face, neck, back of neck and backs of hands and reapply regularly throughout the day all year round. Don’t forget your lips and ears.
  • Apply VITAGE SPF30 to your legs and any other areas exposed to light regularly.
  • If you still would like to be tanned, use our ST. Tropez Spray Tan (as endorsed by Kate Moss) available at the clinic.
  • Wearing VITAGE SPF30 is the best form of anti-ageing cream you can ever use on your skin. Applying all year round will help to even uneven skin tone, reduce pigmentation and hyper pigmentation, help prevention of lentigoes or age spots on backs of hands and repair previously sun damaged skin.
  • Remember: stay safe in the sun.

How the Sun sees your skin

To reinforce the importance of wearing a good sunscreen such as VITAGE SPF30, take a look at this video:

Exposure to the Sun causes:

  • Ageing before your time, with a thickened, leathery appearance
  • An increase in red veins or broken veins on the face
  • Fine and deep wrinkles, especially around the eyes, mouth, neck and backs of hands
  • Loss of elasticity and skin sagging
  • Dry, coarse, thickened skin with solar keratosis and lentigoes (age, brown or liver spots) on the back of hands, face or any parts of the body exposed to sun
  • Inflammation, redness and swelling to the skin
  • Hyper-pigmentation marks and irregular pigmentation on Black and Asian skins
  • Cholasma (brown pigmentation marking) around the eyes and cheek area, especially in women who are pregnant or taking the contraceptive pill
  • Hyper-pigmentation in women who are taking HRT, peri or post menopause or menopausal women
  • 90% of skin ageing is caused by sun damage which includes wrinkles, rough patches, sagging, skin discolouration and pigmentation

And, last but not least:

  • A risk of cancer – sunburn is skin damage! The surface peels away but deep down the damage remains. Also, take note of moles or growths or any new moles or growths that begin to change significantly in any other way. Lesions that change, itch, bleed or don’t heal are also alarm signals.
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

    Basal Cell Carcinoma

    Basal Cell Carcinoma An open sore that bleeds, oozes, or crusts and remains open for a few weeks, only to heal up and then bleed again. A persistent, non–healing sore is a very common sign of an early BCC.
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Squamous Cell Carcinoma Appears as a persistent thick, rough, scaly patch that can bleed if bumped. They often look like warts and sometimes appear as open sores with a raised border and a crusted surface over an elevated pebbly base and occasionally bleed.
  • Melanoma


    Melanoma The deadliest form of skin cancer the signs and symptoms: irregular shaped mole, change in shape, size or colour, itching, bleeding or crusting.
  • If you have any of the above signs and symptoms, you must visit your GP immediately.
