Skin Cancer Prevention Tips To Reduce Your Risk

Skin Cancer Prevention and How To Protect Yourself

Since its inception in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has always recommended using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher as an important part of a complete sun protection regimen. Sunscreen alone is not enough, however.

- Seek the shade, especially between 10AM and 4 PM.

- Do not burn.

- Avoid tanning and UV tanning beds.

- Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.

- Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

- Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.

 - Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months.

- Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.

See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.
