    Why you need sunscreen and how to use it correctly

    Sunscreen will help to protect your skin against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can even pass through clouds. Other UV-protective measures include wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, limiting your sun exposure between the peak hours of 10am and 4pm, and avoiding tanning beds and sunlamps. “A sunscreen works best when it is applied 15 minutes before going outdoors, and should be reapplied approximately every two hours or more frequently if you are engaged in water sports or sweat a lot,” says Dr Natascha Ekawati Putri, Associate Consultant, Division of Surgical Oncology, National Cancer Centre Singapore.

    Helping Breast Cancer Patients Deal With Changes in Their Appearance

    “When you think about it, the two things that make you feel most like a woman are your hair and your breasts,” explains Mary Aframe, the founder of the Women’s Image Center outside of Boston. “One of the oncologists I work with told me that he asks his patients ‘What was the hardest part of treatment?’ And 85% say losing their hair.” That statistic isn’t surprising to Aframe, who founded her business with the understanding that helping manage the radical changes in a woman’s appearance during cancer treatment is a crucial part of healing.  Today women come to WIC to get help with wigs, breast prosthesis, or even find a bathing suit specifically designed for mastectomy patients.   The idea for The Women’s Image Center came to Aframe 16 years ago.
