Why Should We Care About Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, killing one American every hour. Skin cancer is not only affecting more people every year, but it is striking at earlier ages.

Tragically, skin cancer caught early is generally readily curable. The bulk of morbidity and mortality from skin cancer is due to late stage diagnosis, stemming from inadequate prevention and lack of knowledge regarding the signs of skin cancer. Finding more efficient ways to prevent cancer would help reduce the lives lost to the escalating skin cancer epidemic.

Despite well established clinical and genomic risk factors for skin cancer, there is inadequate public awareness of personal risk or prevention practices. People with darker skin types often think they are immune to skin cancer, and don’t often take sun protection seriously or know about the signs of skin cancer.

Early awareness and access to treatment is the key to reducing morbidity and mortality! Regularly self-examine your moles for the ABCDEs.

Skin aging and damage is largely due to the effects of ultraviolet sunlight, or UVA rays, which mutate our cells and disrupt their function. This light also depletes several key vitamins in the skin which are involved in keeping skin healthy. Healthy skin is beautiful!

The best daily practice is to use a broad spectrum sunscreen. Choose one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays and replaces the depleted skin vitamins locally.

Dr. Kenner suggests a product containing high Zinc Oxide (8% or higher) that is at least SPF 30. Use it every morning regardless of the weather, and reapply midday or more frequently as needed.

Apply the needed vitamins locally where the damage is greatest, as the body isn’t able to selectively send ingested vitamins to the areas of most need. Vitamins taken orally distribute in small amounts throughout the body and are excreted in excess. Some forms of fat soluble vitamins can even be toxic if too much is ingested.

The Problem

Sunblock alone is not enough!

Light in all forms (visible, ultraviolet A and B, infrared, and blue screen) harms the skin. It destroys key vitamins A, B, C, and E. Sunblocks can additionally prevent the formation of vitamin D, which is necessary for skin health.

Light exposure is responsible for premature aging, discoloration, skin cancer, spider veins, wrinkles, loss of volume, milia, dull appearance, and more!

The Solution

Protect and repair daily, as early as possible!

Protect Broadly:

Use SkinHappy A to Zinc Total Skin Protection with 10% zinc oxide and vitamins A, B, C, D, E.

Apply sun protection every morning, and again as needed throughout the day, no matter the weather. If you plan to be in full sun, additionally apply a water-resistant sunscreen.

Repair Broadly:

Use the SkinHappy ABC Serums:

  • SkinHappy Solution Series: start with Solution 4 and then advance to levels 5, 6, and eventually 7 as tolerated.
  • Vitamin B3+ Stay Ageless Repair Serum
  • C++ Antioxident Serum

These higher level healing vitamins take advantage of the skin working harder to repair itself at night, mopping up any damage that gets through the daytime defenses.

Follow Dr. Kenner's daily routine for a lifetime of healthy skin:

In the morning, regardless of the weather:

  • Wash with a gentle cleanser or exfoliant.
  • Use SkinHappy A to Zinc Total Skin Protection and reapply mid day.
  • If you need more moisture in the skin, or desire even more rejuvenation, use the SkinHappy ABC serums:
    • SkinHappy Solution Series
    • Vitamin B3+ Stay Ageless Repair Serum
    • C++ Antioxident Serum

In the evening:

  • Wash with a gentle cleanser or exfoliant.
  • Mix together the SkinHappy ABC serums and apply all over the face:
    • SkinHappy Solution Series
    • Vitamin B3+ Stay Ageless Repair Serum
    • C++ Antioxident Serum

Protecting your skin is as simple as the ABCS!

Vitamin A (Retinoids)

Vitamin A, or retinoids, are fundamental to skin rejuvenation and preservation against premature aging, cancer, acne and other diseases. SkinHappy Solution Gentle Retinoid Repair is a custom proprietary (patent pending) retinoid creation by Dr. Julie Kenner. This product is more effective, affordable, and gentler than any other product in its class. As Dr. Kenner says: Retinoids are the “great skin normalizers”, and when used daily with a broad-spectrum sunblock, are the best way to preserve the health and beauty of skin for a lifetime. SkinHappy has developed highly effective and tolerable retinoids in a step-up series designed to accommodate all skin ages and types. Children start with Level 1, and progress to Level 3; most adults can start at Level 4 and progress to Level 7 over time. SkinHappy Solution Series is powerful yet gentle enough to use twice a day, even for the most sensitive skin!

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)

Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is critical to providing all skin cells with energy for top performance. SkinHappy Vitamin B3 Stay Ageless Repair Serum is another custom creation by Dr. Kenner containing high levels of fat-soluble niacinamide, a key ingredient for all skin cells in the creation and preservation of skin health and beauty. Niacinamide is critical for maintaining skin barrier and proper cellular function and is protective against environmental stress and premature aging due to collagen and other cellular breakdowns. Use it twice daily.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is key to collagen formation, pigment release, and antioxidation. SkinHappy C++ Antioxidant Serum is a specialty crafted lipid-soluble Vitamin C serum. Native Vitamin C is water soluble, and unless formulated properly by turning into a fat soluble form, it won’t be able to get through the skin barrier. Dr. Kenner's C++ formulation has been created with this in mind, and has great skin penetration and stability, so that it can brighten and lighten the skin's appearance while leaving it soothed, hydrated and healthy-looking. This serum is well-tolerated by all, including those with the most sensitive skin or rosacea. Use it twice a day.

Skin and Sun Protection

Practicing broad-spectrum sun protection is the final key to the ABCS. As dermatologists and scientists, we know that no sunscreen ingredient on the market can block all light rays, and that even with our best efforts light can damage our skin. To guard against this, Dr. Kenner created the created the SkinHappy A to Zinc Total Skin Protection Serum, a product that combines the power of high concentration zinc oxide, the broadest of all sun protective agents, with important skin-repairing vitamins A, B, C, D, and E in a unique formulation which rapidly blends into the skin for optimal efficacy.

Follow the ABCS to help keep your skin in top shape for a lifetime, by repairing and protecting along the way!
