Skin cancer is rarely fatal or even serious when found and treated early. But the problem is that for many people skin cancer keeps coming back even after they've been treated for one case. But recurrent skin cancer doesn't have to be a fact of life. Read on to find out how using retinoic acid could help you decrease skin cancer recurrences or stop them altogether.
While skin cancer
is notorious for recurring right after you’re been treated for it, the answer to warding off these recurrences is often as simple as using the right supplement: retinoic acid.
Retinoic acid: An effective skin cancer fighter
Retinoic acid is a form of vitamin A that’s naturally present in your skin in very small quantities.
“It works by delivering a message to the DNA in the nucleus of skin cells, telling them to divide normally and not to go cancerous. But, sun exposure makes this ‘message delivery’ much less effective. And in turn, skin cancer can occur” explains Dr Jonathan Wright of Nutrition & Healing.
This is where supplemental retinoic acid steps in: It aids in delivering messages to the DNA that tell it to divide normally.
While retinoic acid isn't the only factor in skin cancer prevention, it's an important one that you can use to reduce your risk of skin cancer or prevent it altogether.
Retinoic acid is sold as Retin-A in your local health shop and is available by prescription only. As always, speak to your doctor before taking any kind of medication.
