The not-so-obvious spot you don't want to miss when applying sunscreen
We all know we need to apply sunscreen whenever we go out in the sun. But there are some parts of the body almost everyone misses. Not applying sunscreen to these areas increases the risks associated with sun damage such as dark spots, premature-ageing, and, in some cases, skin cancer.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. According to The Canadian Cancer Society, 200,00+ new skin cancers are diagnosed in Canada each year with one in two Canadian developing skin cancer in their lifetime, and one in four dying of the disease. In the US, the increasing cases of skin cancer are more than cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon combined.
Let's take a look at one of the not-so-obvious spots on the body that can be easily overlooked when applying sunscreen.
The scalp is the most overlooked area on the body and one of the most crucial. It's one of the first places to be exposed to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and one of the last places to identify a potential skin cancer.
It's easy to see why most people don't think to apply sunscreen to the scalp. Most sunscreens are a greasy and messy application that would leave an oily mess in your hair.
KINeSYS sunscreen range provides the perfect solution. The entire spray sunscreen range is allergy-friendly, oil-free and comes in a clear fine mist spray, free of any white goopy and greasy formulas. With a matte finish, it may just be the best companion for your next scalp sunscreen application.
Application: We never suggest spraying the sunscreen directly onto the scalp. Instead, spraying 2-3 sprays onto the fingertips and then applying to the areas that are exposed, such as a hair part.
It's also perfect for all skin types.
