Despite being a world-class athlete, Bruce Jenner has lately become best known for his ongoing struggle with having a natural appearance after plastic surgery. In fact, Bruce has become so well known for his plastic surgery that every time he appears in public with a band-aid, it is assumed that it is covering a scar from a new plastic surgery procedure. Apparently, this is not always the case.
Shortly before announcing his official split from Kris Jenner, the brains behind the Kardashian empire, Bruce was spotted with a band-aid on his nose. Although tabloids immediately declared the band aid to be covering up plastic surgery, such a as a nose job, it turned out to be completely false. Bruce had gone under the knife, but to remove skin cancer, not to have more plastic surgery.
In 2012, Bruce also sported a bandage on his face, and this was also due to the removal of skin cancer, rather than further plastic surgery to correct his previously botched facelifts.
Bruce may be at a high risk for skin cancer due to his love of sports, especially those in the outdoors. Although he rose to world wide fame as a runner, Bruce has remained active long after officially retiring. Spending time on the golf course or in the water means that Bruce should take precautions against sun damage and skin cancer. Living in sunny Southern California and traveling to places around the world means that Bruce may be at a higher risk for skin cancer caused by sun exposure than those that have fewer days of sunshine. It doesn’t mean that Bruce needs to hide inside, it just means that while he is out and about, he should take better precautions.
A high SPF sunscreen can help block the harmful rays that cause damage to the skin. Rather than chemicals which can do more harm than good, look for natural sun blockers such as Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide. If you are going to be exposed for long periods of time, be sure to reapply, especially after swimming. You can also look for sunscreens that multi-task. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm Day Lotion Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 not only protects against the sun, it also helps fight against existing signs of aging including wrinkles and fine lines.
In addition to sunscreen, wearing adequate clothing and hat and trying to stay in the shade are also good ways to prevent sun damage and skin cancer. Bruce has been sporting a ratty-looking ponytail since his split with Kris and a hat with sun protection might be a more flattering look as it would also block the prying lens of paparazzi.
There are also ways to prevent sun damage and skin cancer from the inside out. Look for anti-aging supplements and vitamins that can help reverse signs of aging and even help to protect your skin from sun damage. The antioxidants found in these supplements help to block UVA and UVB rays, which can cause sunspots and wrinkles.
Taking preventive measures from sunscreen to avoiding direct sunlight can go a long way in preventing long term damage from the harsh rays of the sun.none
