In the United States, there are more than 1 million skin cancers diagnosed each year. This fact reflects that skin cancer is the most common type of all cancer types. This number of course cannot be taken for granted. People start to be apprehensive especially by those who are demanded to have direct contact with sun rays everyday for various purposes. And the main cause of skin cancer is getting too much exposure to ultraviolet rays.
There are a lot of things you can do to protect yourself from the bad effect of having too much UV exposure. Among others, you need to avoid sun rays entirely and to wear clothes that can protect you from sun rays when going out door. You can also apply sun-block lotion to protect your skin if you really have to expose your skin to sunlight directly. Continuous treatment and protection will be very helpful to make sure that your skin is completely protected and stays in healthy condition. Industrially produced soaps might be insufficient to provide you with the protection you need to avoid skin cancer. That is why making your own handmade soap will be a good idea to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs.
There are many soap hand-making guides you can get from the internet. However, you have to choose the one explaining the use of suitable ingredients that can provide skin care and protection from the danger of skin cancer. In addition, when you make handmade soap, you can add extra virgin oil and natural lipids to it or find the other ingredients that will be useful to reduce the risk of skin cancer. For example, you can add caffeine extract. Topical application of caffeine will decrease the number of malignant and nonmalignant skin tumors by 44% and 72% respectively. After all, it is always fun to use your own handmade soap but it will be more valuable if you know how to add some nutrients to it.
