Summertime is fun time and also skin protection time

During National Skin Cancer Action Week and throughout summer, whenever the UV index is three or above, use the five forms of sun protection and #OwnYourTone by:

  • slip on sun-protective clothing
  • slop on SPF30 (or higher) broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen
  • slap on a broad-brimmed hat
  • seek shade
  • slide on sunglasses

A combination of these measures, along with getting to know your skin and regularly checking for any changes, are the keys to reducing your skin cancer risk.
