People of all skin types can be at risk of developing skin cancers, and light-skinned people are particularly vulnerable.
While there is currently no light-saturated version of UV light, a new light skin product is in the works, according to research published in the journal Science Advances.
The product is called Ultraviolet Light Sensitive Light-Skin, and it is based on a skin-tightening product called UV Light Sensi-Sensitive.
Ultraviolet light-sensitive products are made with skin-friendly ingredients such as zinc oxide and zinc hydroxide, which is used in sunscreens and other sun protection products.
“This light-based product offers a safe, effective and low cost option for reducing skin damage caused by UV light exposure,” said lead author of the study, Dr. Jyoti Prakash.
UV Light Sensit-Skin is a sunscreen made from zinc oxide that has been made with UV light sensitive ingredients.
It has an absorbency of 5% to 8%, which is a lot higher than the 5% absorbency for normal sunscreen products.UV Light-Sensit-Sunscreen is a sun-blocker that is light-scattering enough to reduce UV-induced damage on skin, and can be applied on the face.
Ultraviolet Light-sensit, which has a UV index of around 30, is one of the best-selling light-tinting sunscreen options available.
There are two kinds of light-blocking sunscreen: sunscreen with a UV-absorbing coating and UV-blocking, or non-UV-absorption sunscreen.
UVA light-absorbers are also popular among the light-faced community, as they provide a good level of UV protection, but UV-resistant UV-repelling materials are more common.
Dr. Prakam says UV Light-Sunblock is the best sunscreen for people of all ages, skin types and skin types in general, and has a long-term shelf life.
People who are of medium-to-dark skin, those who are medium- to dark-skinned, and those with fair or dark skin are more at risk for developing skin cancer than those who have fair skin.
In the study’s pilot phase, researchers used the Ultraviolet-Light Sensit sunscreen in a small group of young people in the United States, India, and the Philippines.
They found that light-headed people had higher rates of skin cancer compared to their lighter-headed counterparts.
A total of 712 children aged 4 to 18 were randomly assigned to one of three groups: A light-haired group who received a UV light- sensitive sunscreen containing zinc oxide, zinc hydrate and vitamin D3, a non-light-sensitive sunscreen containing titanium dioxide and vitamin A3, or a light-colored sunscreen with zinc oxide only.
All three sunscreen groups were tested for four months and found to significantly reduce the risk of skin cancers.
About 20% of children in the light headed group also developed skin cancers compared to those in the non- light headed and light colored sunscreen groups.
For people of medium or dark-to skin, UV light sensitivity was found to be a risk factor for skin cancer, with the highest rate of risk among those with medium- and dark-skin.
According to Dr. Pakash, the product is a promising new addition to the sunscreen market, which she hopes will help people with light-heads and light skin get the protection they need.
