We often hear that UV radiation is the culprit behind both suntans and sunburns. But did you know that there are actually three different types of UV radiation, and they all have different effects on your skin?
The types of UV are differentiated according to their wavelength. UVA rays have the longest wavelengths—only slightly shorter than those of visible light. UVB rays, on the other hand, have medium wavelengths and UVC rays have extremely short wavelengths. UVC rays are actually the most damaging type of UV radiation but you almost never hear about them because the vast majority of UVC radiation is absorbed by our ozone layer.
The ozone layer also takes care of most UVB radiation. However, the UVB rays that slip through are the ones responsible for burning your skin and instigating skin cancer. The good news is that they don’t have much to do with skin aging and can’t travel through clouds or glass.
UVA rays make up as much as 95% of the UV radiation that actually gets to Earth. They penetrate deep into our skin and give us our fantastic, Barton Springs summer tans. However, they’re also the ones we can blame for skin aging. Moreover, new research has shown that the damage caused by UVA rays can eventually lead to skin cancer.
The easiest way to avoid most skin damage is by applying sunscreen before going outside. While some might find a light tan attractive, you won’t be so happy with the signs of aging or skin cancers. Use good suncare now to prevent the damage that will show up later.

In the past 40 years, there has been a surprising rise of deadly skin cancer in 18-39-year-olds. Melanoma has grown by 800% in young women and 400% in young men.
Researchers studied data on 256 young adults who were diagnosed with melanoma between 1970 and 2009, and only 4.8 cases per 100,000 people were diagnosed. But the decade ending on Dec. 31, 2009, 30.8 cases per 100,000 people occurred.
Indoor ultraviolet tanning is more popular among young women than men, which is likely why more young women are getting melanoma than men. The UV rays used in the tanning booths are cancer-causing, so those who tan indoors are 74% more likely to get melanoma than those who don’t. Plus, indoor tanners are 2.5 times more likely to get squamous cell carcinoma and 1.5 times more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma.
Although these numbers are alarming, researchers stated that death from melanoma in young people is decreasing because of the higher rate of earlier diagnosis of melanoma. This lower incidence of death is connected to how more people are aware of skin changes and better diagnostic practices. Melanoma is much easier to cure when treated earlier. So, examine your skin regularly and get anything that is changing or looks unusual checked right away.
If you have noticed changes on your skin and are concerned, to prevent your conditions from worsening, you should contact Dr. Zimmet today.

There are hundreds of moisturizing products on the market, but with so many choices, it can be hard to decide which lotion or cream works for you. For darker skin tones especially, body butters are a popular choice due to their nourishing oils and antioxidants. Here’s a guide to choosing a butter that works for your skin type.
- Cocoa butter: One of the most popular moisturizing butters, cocoa butter has been known to both moisturize and make the skin more elastic. Additionally, cocoa butter encourages the development of collagen to keep skin taut. Although many people use cocoa butter to treat stretch marks, no scientific backing exists for its efficacy.
- Shea butter: A fat extracted from the nut of the shea tree, shea butter has anti-inflammatory properties. This emollient is a better choice for irritated or damaged skin. Additionally, shea butter provides some UV protection, although it shouldn’t be used alone as a sunscreen.
- Mango seed butter: This less popular cream has similar properties to cocoa butter, but has a softer consistency. Additionally, mango seeds contribute nutrients like beta carotene and Vitamin E, which can give the skin a natural and healthy glow.
- Cupuacu butter: Most cupuacu butters are imported from Brazil, where the cupuacu tree grows. Along with moisturizing the skin and providing antioxidants, cupuacu butter is also useful for locking moisture into hair.

Doctors commonly recommend that individuals worried about heart disease should take a low dose of aspirin every day. However, a new study calls that advice into question, claiming that the likelihood of bleeding in the intestinal tract or brain may outweigh any benefits gained from the medication.
The study was led by Dr. Antonio Nicolucci of an Italian biomedical research center. Researchers tracked the health of 186,000 individuals taking low-dose aspirin and 186,000 individuals who were not. The subjects who regularly used aspirin were 55% more likely to experience cerebral or gastrointestinal bleeding. Older men were seen to be particularly susceptible to bleeding.
While the study did not negate the efficacy of using aspirin to prevent cardiovascular disease, researchers concluded that the medication should be primarily used for patients with a higher risk of heart complications. Dr. Zimmet recommends seeking out physicians dedicated to prescribing personalized health and recovery plans for each patient.
