Sun exposure is the primary cause of skin cancer. Skin cancer is more common in light or pale skin, people with light colored eyes, and those with blond or red hair. However, anyone can develop skin cancer. You can reduce your risk of developing skin cancer by considering these precautions:

  • Avoid the sun from 10am to 4pm when UV rays are strongest
  • Avoid tanning and never use UV tanning beds
  • Cover up with lightweight clothing to shield your skin from the sun’s rays
  • Use broad spectrum (UVA/UVB), water resistant 80 minutes sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day
  • Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours after swimming or sweating
  • Use a make-up or skin moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher
  • Keep newborns out of the sun.
  • Examine your skin monthly looking for new or changing moles
  • Avoid smoking
  • Perform regular self skin-exams
  • Schedule an annual skin check with your dermatologist
