Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Statistics reveal that one out of five Americans will be affected by skin cancer of one form or another during their lifetime. The odds for Caucasians in general are even worse at one in three. Dermatologists state that with the time spent out in the sun, the odds are even worse for golfers. Although golfers are aware of the repercussions of being in the sun, many just seem too busy thinking about the game and will come up with a host of excuses for not using sunscreen, especially men. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. It is the outcome of the mutation of a number of cells on the outer layers of the skin. The causes are many, among them being excessive exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Statistics reveal that the three states with the highest incidence of Melanoma are the Sunbelt states of California, Florida and Texas.

Med3 Dermaceuticals, a California based company, has researched and developed a number of skincare products, including the Illuminate and Hydrate Moisturizer with SPF30. This moisturizer with complete sunscreen has been specially developed to protect the face, neck and back of the hands, areas that are most exposed to the sun’s rays, providing full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Not only does the moisturizer have a complete sunscreen, it also has several ingredients that are designed to hydrate skin, not something found in most sunscreens.
