Doctors are warning manicures could lead to skin cancer.

It’s being advised that women who frequent nail salons for manicures should wear sunscreen or fingerless gloves in a bid to limit the exposure of harmful UV light emitted from the lamps.

Although there have been observational case reports linked to the use of UV lamps and the development of skin cancer in the hand, experts are yet to truly establish the risk involved.

It’s not currently known if the UV lights in nail salons are as extreme as those in tanning beds, however the ‘Skin Cancer Foundation’ in the USA has recommended clients to apply sunscreen to the hands in order to protect themselves.

“If you’re going back every week or having multiple treatments than that UV light exposure can accumulate over time. Generally, these devices emits low levels of UV radiation and people are exposed for very short periods,” said Heather Walker, chair national skin cancer committee for Cancer Council Australia, “However, UV damage adds up over time so protecting your hands is recommended.”

What do you make of this research? Will you be encouraging clients to wear sunscreen?
