Skin Cancer Prevention

May 6, 2013

Summer is coming and the tendency is to shed some layers and feel the sunshine. Its warmth can boost our spirits, but remember, it comes with a dangerous trade-off. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using
a sunscreen SPF 15 or higher along with these other prevention tips:

Do not let your skin burn.
Avoid tanning & UV tanning booths.
Use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher).
Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.
Seek shade between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
See your doctor every year for a professional skin exam.
