Fish may Help Skin Cancer

How eating fish can save your skin………We’ve lauded the benefits of eating fish many times. Here’s another reason to consider making fish a regular part of your diet: It may save you from skin cancer.

A recent study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at the effect of eating fish on the occurrence of actinic keratoses, or AKs — those rough, red patches that tend to pop up on the skin as we get older, especially on sun-damaged skin.More than half of invasive squamous cell skin cancers begin as AKs, so anything that can help to prevent AKs can potentially reduce your risk of skin cancer.In this study, the dietary intake of more than 1,100 adults in Australia was monitored over four years.

Participants were also evaluated by dermatologists for the presence of AKs on their skin at the beginning and the end of the study. After four years, there was a 28 percent reduction in new AKs among the people who ate the oiliest fish, such as salmon (one to two servings per week), compared with those who ate the least amount of such fish.More..

5 Acne Treatment

Luckily, there are a number of things you can do everyday to make sure your skin is less prone to flare ups. Here are five tips for taking control of your acne starting today.

1. Exercise

Keeping in shape can help fight acne by fighting off negative stress levels that can come from negative self-esteem and depression. However, some safeguards need to be in place to ward off acne that can result from your workout routines. Watch what you put on your body with regards to clothing, sports gear and equipment.

For example, tight lycra and nylon exercise outfits might look great in the movies and on magazine models, but if you are susceptible to acne problems, avoid these synthetic fabrics that tend to trap in body moisture and heat resulting in a bacteria frenzy. Instead, choose loose clothing made of cotton or natural blends to allow more air to get to your skin.

And when you are finished with your workout, get out of clothing wet from perspiration or water sports. Shower and change into dry, clean clothing. And keep your sports gear and equipment clean, too. Dirty headgear, for instance, can irritate forehead areas prone to acne problems. So toss headbands into the washing machine after workout sessions.More..

Skin Cancer and Walking Women

Young women are seeing a rise in skin cancer. According to a news release from the Society for Women’s Health Research, the CDC says, “The diagnosis of all types of skin cancer has increased and melanoma has become the most common cancer among young women aged 25-29.”

Yesterday I had a check-up and my doctor is referring me to dermatology for a slightly suspicious mole. Like most middle-aged women, I grew up in the 70’s when we all tried to be tan like Farrah Fawcett. I switched to high UPF sunscreen by the time I became a fitness walker at age 24 and stopped attempting to tan. I get enough of a glow even with the sunscreen due to hours a week of outdoors walking.

The report says that using tanning beds may be the high risk factor among young women today. They carry the same skin-aging and skin cancer risk as natural sunlight.more…
