It is #NationalHealthySkinMonth and as the Arizona weather gets nicer and outdoor activity increases, it is important to remember to take care of your skin. Check out the post below from English Dermatology to learn the science behind why people with fair skin and red hair have to be extra cautious when spending time in the sun.👇☀
Note: If you have not had an annual skin exam in over a year, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to get your skin checked! English Dermatology is an in-network dermatologist for members of Arizona Care Network.Most people know spending hours at the pool or beach or not wearing sunscreen will damage your skin. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet UV rays cause premature aging, wrinkles, and skin cancer.🌞
So why is the skin cancer risk, including melanoma, so much higher for fair-skinned people? Redheads carry variants of MC1R. A specific mutation in the melanocortin receptor, which is responsible for your hair, skin, and eye color, also makes those with the ginger gene more prone to various skin cancers.
Melanin is a pigment in skin that protects against sun exposure. It actually protects your DNA from the damaging effects of UV rays. The body has two different types of melanin: eumelanin is brown-black and pheomelanin is red-orange. After sun exposure, the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) signals the pigment-producing melanocyte cells to make melanin. 👩🦰
For most people, melanin causes the skin to tan and turn darker without DNA damage. However, people with red hair, fair skin, and freckles do not tan due to a mutation in the MC1R receptor gene. This stops melanin from working properly. Cells only produce pheomelanin, which doesn’t protect against sunburns and DNA damage from the sun’s harmful rays. #nationalredheadday #themoreyouknow ...
