Skin care and the ozone layer

Ten thousand Americans are diagnosed with some form of skin cancer every day, nearly four million every year. With smoke and pollution on the rise and Earth’s protective ozone layer growing thinner, the skincare crisis could become even worse in years to come. The best way to prevent this–perhaps the only way–is to adjust our habits by washing more effectively, using a good sunscreen, trying not to overdo our exposure to the sun, and incorporating effective moisturizers with antioxidants into our skincare regimen. In this new era of skin care, a cream or lotion has to do more than just moisturize–it must also help repair the skin and effectively defend it against the buildup of free radical cells.
