Sunscreen offers incomplete protection, study finds

ASDS Skin Source SmartBrief | Jul 16, 2014

Sunscreens with a protection factor of 50 protect only against immediate damage, but allow radiation to penetrate the skin and damage melanocytes, according to a study in the journal Nature. Sunscreen reduced DNA damage and delayed the development of skin cancer, but did not protect genes against all damage in the study. "This work highlights the importance of combining sunscreen with other strategies to protect our skin, including wearing hats and loose-fitting clothing, and seeking shade when the sun is at its strongest," study author Richard Marais said.
