What is actinic keratosis

What is actinic keratosis

It is a scaly or crusty bump that arises on the skin surface. The base may be light or dark, tan, pink, red, or a combination of these, or the same color as your skin. The scale or crust is horny, dry, and rough, and is often recognized by touch rather than sight. Occasionally it itches or produces a pricking or tender sensation. It can also become inflammed and surrounded by redness. In rare instances, actinic keratoses can even bleed.

Related terms and synonyms: solar keratosis, carcinoma in situ, premalignant skin lesions , sun-related growth, hyperkeratosis, telangiectasias, elastosis , pigmented lentigines, acanthosis , parakeratosis, dyskeratoses, Fitzpatrick type I and II skin, multiple erythematous keratoses.

The skin abnormality or lesion develops slowly and generally reaches a size from an eighth to a quarter of an inch. Early on, it may disappear only to reappear later.

Actinic keratosis is most likely to appear on the face, ears, scalp, neck, backs of the hands and forearms, shoulders, and lips – the parts of the body most often exposed to sunlight.

Actinic keratosis is the most common sun-related growth. An estimated 60% of individuals older than 40 years who are predisposed have at least one actinic keratosis or solar keratosis. Usually, these people are fair-skinned, burn easily, and tan poorly, as well as have occupations or hobbies that result in excessive sun exposure. They may be treated effectively by available methods. Actinic keratoses have the potential to develop into skin cancers; therefore, treatment is indicated.

Causes

Increased sun exposure and higher intensity exposure increases the incidence of actinic keratoses. Lesions flare and become more visible during periods of immune suppression, such as acute sun exposure or chemotherapy, especially with systemic 5-fluorouracil. However, the development of actinic keratoses would not occur without sun exposure.

Medical management begins with educating the patient to limit sun exposure. Patients should be cautioned to avoid sun exposure from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm as much as possible. They also must wear adequate sunscreens and protective clothing daily.

Prevention

Actinic keratoses can be reduced or delayed by using sunscreens and reducing sun exposure.

People affected should limit recreational exposure and those who work outdoors should consider making adjustments in their work-related sun exposure.

For those forced to undergo sun exposure, recommend applying a sunscreen of sun protection factor (SPF) 30 or more and wearing protective clothing daily.

The best therapy is one that addresses minor actinic keratosis scaly formations early, and here is where BIOSKINCARE plays a significant role.

Scary stuff isn’t it?

The complete A – Z on Prevention and Risks with BIOSKINCARE CREAM
A- Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins, especially copper peptides which are abundantly found in the snail secretions. These proteins and peptides have antimicrobial properties that help to trigger skin regeneration. Amino acids are also vital for the construction of collagen and elastin which are the support structures of the skin.

B- BIOSKINCARE CREAM embodies the biological ingredient, a natural fluid, with cell-communicating ingredients, enzymes that “dissolve” or “digest” damaged cells especially those that are damaged by the sun, biological activators of skin renewal and antimicrobial peptides.

C- The greatest interest in copper peptides is in the area of reversing the effects of human aging and ultraviolet damage on human skin in Actinic Keratosis.

D- Dehydrated, dry and damaged skin from the suns UV rays is due to the lack of moisture and natural oil that the skin requires to keep it looking healthy. Moisturizing agents such as lipids and humectants minimize damaging interactions between surfactants, and skin proteins and lipids, and thereby, reduce skin damage.

E- Exfoliation is vitally important in any skin care routine. The chemical or mechanical removal of dead and unwanted skin cells allows the skin to produce new skin cells and get the skin looking beautiful and flawless. BIOSKINCARE CREAM is the only natural system that gently exfoliates with only NATURAL SKIN RENEWAL ACTIVATORS that signal your neurological system to get rid of damaged skin cells and to replace them with new skin cells.

F- Free Radicals are the unstable molecules found naturally in the body and in the environment. To reduce their energy load, free radicals react with certain chemicals in the body, and in the process, interfere with the cells’ ability to function normally. Free radicals are a main cause of extrinsic aging. BIOSKINCARE CREAM will help the skin to defend itself against the free radical that cause premature aging thanks to the copper peptides which stimulate collagen synthesis and have an antioxidant effect.

G- Glycosaminoglycans strengthen the connective tissue so that it can absorb water. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are skin conditioning agents that help strengthen the skins barrier. GAGs form an important component of connective tissues.

H- Hyaluronic acid is an acid that helps the skin to retain its natural moisture. It can hold 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid has also shown excellent results in the reduction of dryness, itching and burning of the skin. It offers a perfect environment for the growth of new cells and healing following skin peeling.

I- Intense Sun Exposure is the major cause of a weakening of the immune system called Immunosuppression, which is difficult to control when the patient is suffering from skin cancer or Actinic keratosis. In these cases medication and chemotherapy is commonly rejected. Also any suppressed immune system is at a higher risk of dangerous skin diseases due to intense exposure to the sun.

K- The word keratosis is defined by the build up of keratin on the skin and can be due to many causes. The most common cause, however, is due to exposure to the sun and these areas of the skin usually become sore and inflamed.

L- Low fat, healthy balanced diets are a fantastic way of building up the immune system and helping the skin to repair itself as well as with standard treatments, medication and exposure to the sun. However a healthy diet will not protect the skin externally from the damaging UV rays.

M- Melanoma is the name given to a malignant tumor of melanocytes and, less frequently, of retinal pigment epithelial cell . While it represents one of the rarer forms of skin cancer, melanoma underlies the majority of skin cancer-related deaths.

N- Natures gift to mankind: BIOSKINCARE is just one of them. A natural cream based on the most valued bio-available skin care ingredients, which nature itself has already wisely combined in one unique substance. BIOSKINCARE contains a biological secretion collected from the live snail species ¨Helix Aspersa Müller¨. Using proprietary technology, no harm is inflicted upon the little creatures during the labor-extensive gathering process.

O- Olive oil derivatives can be found in BIOSKINCARE CREAM they include emulsifier, surfactant, and moisturizing olive oil derivatives.

P- Proteoglycans (PGs) are components of extracellular matrix (ECM), and play an important role in modulating the structure and regulating the functions of the skin. The timely turnover of PGs influence the development and differentiation of cells. Wound healing also depends on the level of PGs which if not adequate leads to abnormal scars.

Q- The long quest is over. BIOSKINCARE CREAM will do it all for you. Give your skin a head start to quickly repair and rejuvenate with a quality natural product that really does work!

R- Reapply and reapply sunscreen every 1 and a half hours especially when outdoors and even when the days are cloudy. Select a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection.

S- Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of a sunscreen indicates the time period you can stay in the sun without burning based on your skin complexion. Skin types range from; Very Fair or Extremely Sensitive, Fair or Sensitive , Medium to Dark

T- Tanning beds, salons, tanning activators, natural sun tans and all skin color enhancements that use UV light are just as dangerous and sometimes even more than direct exposure to the sun. Ultraviolet light from the sun and tanning beds causes skin cancer and wrinkling. If you want to look like you’ve been in the sun, consider using a sunless self-tanning product. When using a self-tanning product, you should continue to use sunscreen.

U- Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher daily. Apply at least 20 minutes prior to sun exposure for maximum sun protection. Use extra caution near water, snow, and sand. These reflect the damaging rays of the sun, which can increase your chance of sunburn. Also use BIOSKINCARE CREAM in you daily skincare routine to get the maximum curative benefits and regenerative properties that your skin desires.

V- Vigor, vitality and visible health: The cream is also a unique nutrient-rich moisturizer for wrinkles on the face, neck, and body. It promotes an even skin tone and balanced skin renewal. Treatment should be continued until your skin recovers the desired sense of vitality and freshness.

W- Wear clothing that covers arms and legs, and wear a wide brimmed hat. Clothing protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. The tighter the weave of the fabrics, the more sun protection provided. Clothing plays such an important role in sun protection that there are clothing brands designed specifically to protect against the sun. Also wear sunglasses with UV light protection and hats, preferably wide brimmed.

X- Place a giant X to cross out those horrible days of when sunburns and unwanted sunburn related wrinkles, marks and blemishes made your life a living hell; keeping you from enjoying everyday normal activities and stifling your social liveliness. BIOSKINCARE CREAM will enable you to cross this out of your life forever and enjoy the skin you are living in without holding you back at all.

Y- Youthful looking healthy skin is something we all want to have forever. Unfortunately the effects of time, age, gravity and sun exposure the skin begins to loosen and sag, especially on the face where the skin is thinner; mostly around the bottom of the eyes and the eyelids BUT BIOSKINCARE CREAM will help you to combat the elements that age the skin and allow your skin to maintain that young flawlessness.

Z- Zest is all about vigorous and enthusiastic enjoyment. Isn’t that what we all deserve to feel every single day we wake up and look in the mirror with confidence? Nature and BIOSKINCARE CREAM will restore that self-assurance and zeal for life by simply taking care of your skin.

In conclusion …Overexposure to the sun is what causes sun burn and damage to the skin. The ultraviolet rays of the sun can produce a painful burn that can be as severe as first or second degree. Reflection of water, sand or snow can also intensify the sun’s burning rays. The best protection against sunburn is prevention. Avoid sun exposure during the peak hours of the sun’s rays and apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Protect the eyes with sunglasses that have UV protection and use a lip balm with sunscreen. Years of unprotected sun exposure can cause premature aging and cancer of the skin.
