Melanin Is IN - Part 2

Melanin is In
As we mentioned in Part 1Melanin is a natural pigment found in skin. Melanin partially protects the skin from sunlight’s harmful UV rays. As Spring warmth will soon give way to Summer heat, you have to know what to do to make your skin stay healthy in the rising heat. Although exposure to sunlight triggers increased melanin production, too much exposure to UV rays may cause many undesirable skin conditions such as dry patches, acne breakouts, dark spots, rough spots, sunburn and skin cancer. These skin conditions can be very worrisome. To break it down a bit, UVA causes skin changes associated with premature skin aging (photoaging), while UVB causes sunburn. Recurrence of these skin problems makes the skin to age faster leading to the affected persons looking older than they are. 

To prevent exposure of your skin and eyes to harmful effects of sunlight’s UV radiations take the following precautions:

  • Avoid or limit sunlight exposure between 10 am-4 pm when UVB radiations are strongest.  

When outdoors,  

  • Stay in the shade.
  • Wear clothes that cover skin areas exposed to sunlight. Tightly woven fabrics with dark colors offer more protection. 
  • Wear wide-brim hat or use umbrella.
  • Use broad-spectrum sunglasses to protect your eyes and surrounding skin areas from UVA and UVB radiations.
  • Use broad-spectrum sunscreen containing SPF of at least 30 to block UVA and UVB.
Keeping your body well hydrated in all seasons, and most especially during Spring and Summer heat is a proven DIY strategy to maintain your general wellbeing and skin health. In hot weather, the body loses more water than usual through increased sweating. A mixture of sweat, germs and sebum (oily secretions) on the skin clog sweat pores which usually cause acne breakouts.
Heat causes skin dryness, irritation and inflammation. Drinking enough water daily replaces water losses, prevents dehydration, helps to remove metabolic waste products from the body and maintain skin moisture.
Maintaining skin health in the heat of Spring and Summer is a constant challenge as harsh sunshine and damaging effects of UV radiations cause many skin problems that dry, discolor and roughen the skin. We offer you two custom-made, 100% plant-based, natural formulations to fight off these skin problems and keep your skin complexion flawless in and out of hot seasons. As you can clearly read (and surely see), Melan-In Skin Nourishing Serum+ MPF and Melan-In Skin Nourishing Lotion+ MPF contain MPF (Melanin Protection Factor). MPFs are natural sun protectors derived from essential ingredients in the plant, fruit and vegetable oils used to make this Lotion and Serum. When you apply this Lotion and Serum to your skin, MPFs absorb sunlight’s UVA and UVB, thereby protecting you and your skin from their damaging effects.
