Study Report on “Sunscreen”In 2016, compared between Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam
Preventing oneself from excessive UV exposure is now a concern in many parts of the world, especially in tropical Southeast Asia. According to the World Health Organization, there are between 2 million to 3 million deaths caused by UV exposure around the world. ("Skin Cancers."WHO. N.p., n.d.Web. 24 Feb. 2016.) Therefore, preventing oneself from UV exposure does not only help prevent oneself from cancer but also keep one’s skin young and youthful for a long period of time.
Women in different Southeast Asian countries in especially in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam have their own methods of protecting themselves from UV rays, for instance, wearing sunscreen, wearing long-sleeved clothing or masks. However, one thing all countries have in common is that respondents from all countries give importance to UV protection especially their face at about the age of 15-19 years old.
