    The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a sunscreen of at least _____.

    • A.

      8 SPF

    • B.

      15 SPF

    • C.

      30 SPF

    • D.

      45 SPF

    Correct Answer
    B. 15 SPF
    Explanation
    The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a sunscreen of at least 15 SPF. This is because SPF (Sun Protection Factor) measures the level of protection against UVB rays, which are responsible for sunburns. A sunscreen with 15 SPF blocks about 93% of UVB rays, providing a good level of protection. Higher SPF values offer slightly more protection, but the difference becomes marginal above 30 SPF. Therefore, 15 SPF is considered the minimum recommended level for effective sun protection.

      Eccrine glands

    • D.

      Scarf skin

    Correct Answer
    B. Sudoriferous glands
    Explanation
    Sudoriferous glands are responsible for producing sweat. These glands are found all over the body and play a crucial role in regulating body temperature. Sweat is composed mainly of water, along with electrolytes and other substances. It is released through the pores of the skin when the body needs to cool down, such as during physical activity or when the surrounding temperature is high. Sebaceous glands, on the other hand, produce sebum, an oily substance that lubricates the skin and hair. Eccrine glands are a type of sudoriferous gland that is responsible for producing sweat that helps regulate body temperature. Scarf skin is not a term related to sweat production.

    The major effects of the skin's aging take place in the dermis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The dermis is the second layer of the skin and is responsible for providing support and elasticity. As we age, the dermis undergoes various changes such as a decrease in collagen and elastin production, leading to the formation of wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of firmness. Additionally, the dermis also houses blood vessels, nerves, and sweat glands, which can also be affected by the aging process. Therefore, it can be concluded that the major effects of skin aging occur in the dermis.

    A naevus, also known as a mole, is a common skin condition characterized by a stain in the skin caused by the dilation of small blood vessels. This dilation leads to the formation of a pigmented spot on the skin. Unlike scars, calluses, and verrucas, which are caused by different factors such as injuries or infections, a naevus is specifically associated with the dilation of blood vessels in the skin. Therefore, the correct answer is naevus.
