Skin Cancer Awareness

 

Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans are affected by skin cancer?

How about Melanoma being the deadliest form of skin cancer?

Or the second most common cancer in young adults ages 15 to 29 years old?

If I told you that the leading cause of cancer death in women 25 to 30 years old was skin cancer, would you change your mind about not wearing sunscreen?

So it goes without saying sunscreen should be a staple in your daily routine whether it’s cloudy, sunny, winter, spring, summer, or fall.  As long as you’re headed out to enjoy the great outdoors you should keep yourself protected!

The best type of sunscreen should offer broad-spectrum protection, have an SPF of 30 or higher, and be water resistant.

The American Academy of Dermatology provides many tips and facts on how you can prevent skin cancer and keep yourself protected. Prevention is key!

With May being Skin Cancer Awareness month we’d like to invite you in joining us to raise awareness. What steps are you going to take to keep yourself protected?  Take the pledge by sharing or snapping a photo and tagging #ichoosesunscreen to raise awareness and show the world what you are doing to keep yourself protected and prevent skin cancer!
