SKIN CANCER PREVENTION

05/06/2013
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.
