After yesterdays article, I hope many of you took the time to check any skin moles you may have. There were some good questions about what causes moles in the first place and is there a way to prevent new ones.
Well, today to I am going to share some good information that can help you potentially reduce the incidence of skin moles in your life. This time of year we all want to stay cool and that means wearing shorts, lighter clothing, and bathing suits that reveals more skin.
Because a lot of us are can be self-conscious about how we look with moles, it can cause a problem. However, there is much more to it than that.
Any type of skin mole can appear at any time during your life. It's not uncommon for moles to develop during childhood.
One reason that moles may increase is the body's response to chemical changes in your body like your hormone levels, chemical exposure, and even hereditary inclination to have them.
There are a couple of things you could do right now to decrease the chances you will get more skin moles and the cancer risk they present. The one I will share today has to do with sun exposure.
The bottom line for everyone is that sun exposure can cause skin moles to increase. The chances for this are greater for the fair skinned but it is not limited to that skin type. Many of my clients are dark complected and face the same issues.
One theory is that the increase in this is due to over-exposure when young, which sets the stage for mole growth later on.
The obvious thing here is to be sure to use sunscreen when prolonged exposure to the sun is going to be a part of your day.
This is time longer than about 20 minutes. You need "some" sun to stay
healthy and so you need to find that balance. (I will be doing an article on sun, vitamin D, and proper use of sunscreen for skin health soon.)
There was a time it was believed that the only way to remove a skin mole once it had formed was to have it surgically removed. If you know anything about me, you know that this is not so and I talk at length about this in my best selling "No More Moles, Warts, or Skin Tags" book.

Here are my tips for you today for reducing the incidence of skin moles:
1. Protect your skin with a good naturally-based sunscreen.
Make sure it does not contain any form of vitamin A as it changes form in the sun and becomes carcinogenic. You have heard about this in the news likely.
Also, you do NOT need a sunscreen over SPF-30. Otherwise you have the risk of irritation to the skin and higher just does not provide more protection.
2. Daily Exfoliation plays a key role in skin health.
I know I know, I keep saying this but I can't get across how important this is. Fresh skin is healthier skin and skin care products work better on it, yes, even sunscreen. That is why I highly recommend the Ginale Skin Peel as part of your routine.

3. Treat skin moles as they occur with a natural method or have them medically removed, if you so wish.
As I explained there are great all-natural methods available as well. The point is they are easier to deal with when they first show up, rather than later. This is the same with all skin conditions, moles, warts, or skin tags.
I hope you found this information helpful. It is my goal to try and educate and help those interested in skin health.
Skin moles can be managed quite successfully, you just have to make the choice to protect your skin. Tomorrow I will share my own run in with a pre-cancerous mole.
Wishing you a healthy and joyous day,
