In Russia, the so-called sun tattoos are gaining popularity, which are obtained from a combination of tanned and light skin areas. Dermatologist, cosmetologist Stanislav Arkannikov warned about the deadly danger of the new trend in an interview with Sputnik radio.
He noted that doctors consider this entertainment one of the most unhealthy in recent years, since people are in the sun during the most dangerous hours. The specialist recalled that it is safest to sunbathe before ten o’clock in the morning and after 17 o’clock until late in the evening, when solar activity decreases.
“Naturally, to make a“ sun tattoo ”during these hours, you will have to spend more than one day experimenting, otherwise you will not get a difference in skin color. Therefore, such manipulations are carried out during the period of maximum solar activity, and this can cause sunburn, ”explained Arkannikov.
The doctor added that sunburn causes numerous consequences, including cell damage and accelerated aging, but the worst of them is skin cancer or melanoma. Moles are especially dangerous, they can transform into a malignant neoplasm, which will lead to death.
According to Arkannikov, the ozone layer has now been depleted, so the sun is becoming aggressive for all living things, and neglect of the rules leads to irreversible consequences. The dermatologist urged to sunbathe wisely and abandon dubious trends like “sun tattoos”.
Earlier, the Russian oncologist Ivan Karasev named the favorite food of patients who died of intestinal cancer. It turned out that DNA damage causing cancer is associated with the consumption of large amounts of red meat. At the same time, the consumption of poultry or fish did not affect this indicator, as well as the impact of any other factors related to lifestyle.
