Tips to Prevent Skin Cancer

Spring is fading fast and the summer sun will soon be welcomed. But along with the outdoor barbeques, the pool days and beach festivities comes a danger unbeknownst to many: skin cancer. There is a significant number of people out there who don’t realize its importance. As many as 3,000 deaths occur from skin cancer each year in the U.S. Truthfully, protecting your skin is not a summertime-only thing, and it’s not just for fair-skinned people. Be kind to your skin, protect it and voice your concern to others. You’ll be better-prepared for the future and helping others along the way. Here are 3 rules to skin care:

Use sunscreen—The most important way to prevent skin cancer is using sunscreen continually. Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or higher. If you’re going to the pool or beach, use a water-resistant sunscreen.

Cover up—You can decrease your chances of skin cancer dramatically by avoiding tanning altogether. When out in the sun, seek the shade especially between 10 AM and 4 PM. Remember to always cover up and never “lay out.”

Spread the word—Don’t be a bystander, tell your friends and family to take care of their skin. Extend kindness and educate them on the dangers of tanning beds and sun-tan oil. Remind them to use sunscreen and cover up.
