now_jakarta May is Skin Cancer Month in the United States. Although we live thousands of miles away, learning more about the dangers of skin cancer is very important, especially since we live in a tropical country that is blessed with plenty of sunlight throughout the day.

Skin cancer is an abnormal growth of skin cells which usually forms in skin that has been exposed to sunlight although it can also occur anywhere on the body. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is believed to play a significant role in the development of the disease, therefore people who spend more time outdoors should be vigilant and always remember to protect their skin. Many experts agree that some people are at a higher risk of developing skin cancer, for example fair-skinned individuals with a history of repeated sunburn and those with blonde or red hair. Moreover, people who live in high-altitude climates and have a family history of skin cancer should also be more cautious as they are particularly prone to the disease.

There are several different types of skin cancer which are divided into two categories; non-melanoma (basal cell and squamos cell skin cancer) and melanoma. While the non-melanoma type usually responds to treatment and rarely spreads to other parts of the body, the melanoma type is known as the deadliest form of skin cancer which can be fatal if it’s not treated early.

chrisdavidphoto Can you feel the electricity? Another from our first underwater UV glow shoot earlier in the year. This spectrum of light can be challenging to learn but can create some magic.
