Worldwide Medical Insurance News: Women urged to apply skin protection

Female expatriates with international health insurance may want to follow the advice of one skin specialist and take steps to protect themselves from excessive exposure to the sun.

Louise Thomas-Minns, founder of, urged women to ensure they use sun factor protection on a daily basis.

"You're looking for a product that gives you an environmental protection factor every day – as we're exposed to the elements 365 days a year – especially ultraviolet," she stated, adding applying a suitable product will make sure the skin is protected from the sun, temperature changes and pollution.

Excessive exposure to these will accelerate aging, Ms Thomas-Minns said, warning failing to protect the skin sufficiently also increases the risk of cancer.

Communications manager for the British Association of Dermatologists Nina Goad recently noted there is a wide range of skincare products on the market, which can make it difficult to offer universal guidance on applying creams and lotions.
