A Golfer Gets Wise


                                          Cyrus Week #1 Experience

Sun block has become a popular product to help prevent sunburn, skin cancer, etc. And golfers usually use higher SPF’s.  But do they work? To quote the FDA, "There is not adequate data demonstrating that products with SPF values higher than 50 provide additional protection compared to products with SPF values of 50."

As a PGA instructor, Cyrus Wu is out in the sun a lot, and without suncreen. That leads to sunburns and an uneven skin tone. In June 2011 the FDA warned: "Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin." This should clearly alert athletes like Cyrus as to the importance of skin protection. Now he has chosen to use Nevaline to repair his existing sun damage and prevent future skin problems. Let's see how it goes in the weeks ahead.
