Actinica Lotion is a specially formulated sunscreen designed to protect the skin from damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays and irradiation. This particular liposomal lotion has been developed by leading experts and is specially intended for people whose skin is considered to be at a higher than normal risk of developing skin cancer. Various photostable UV filters and organic compounds are contained, including Ethylhexyl triazone, Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate and many others. They work together and help to absorb UVA and UVB radiation, thereby offering a high level of UV protection.
There are two primary types of skin cancer which can affect individuals, including non-melanoma skin cancer (actinic keratoses, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma) and melanoma. A weakened immune system can leave you at risk of skin cancer due to UV damage, and in cases like this, you may be advised to use a sunscreen product such as this one. By offering long lasting protection against the sun and moisturizing the skin, this product can help limit the damage from sun exposure. However, patients should also be reminded to stay out of the sun whenever possible, especially when it is at its strongest.
Other measures that you can take to protect your skin include wearing protective and thick clothing (shirts with long sleeves, special UV sunglasses and a baseball cap).
Try your best to stay out of the sun, especially between 10am and 4pm (the time at which the sun is at its strongest). Also, stay away from all tanning booths and sun lamps.
