Sunscreen is proven to reduce skin aging, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, premature aging and damage that can lead to skin cancer.
The eyelid region is also one of the most common sites for skin cancers—in fact about 5-10% of all skin cancers occur on the eyelid.
Eyelid cancer most commonly involves the skin or glands of the eyelid. The most common eyelid tumor types are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Less common eyelid tumor types are sebaceous carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and melanoma.
Symptoms of Eyelid Cancer
Skin cancer of the eyelids may not show symptoms in its early stages. Common symptoms that may appear include:
- A spreading growth on the eyelid that can be red, brown or black
- Broken skin on the eyelid that does not heal
- Change in appearance of the eyelid skin
- Chronic infection of the eyelid
- Loss of eyelashes
- Swelling or thickening of the eyelid
Just like other areas of your body, the first step in prevention of eyelid cancer is shade, wearing a hat, sunglasses…
…and sunscreen. Most consumers do not use sunscreen on their eyelids and around the eyes due to synthetic eye stinging ingredients.
