Tips to Prevent Skin Cancer

Here are a few things that you can do to avoid skin cancer:

* Wear protective clothing, such as sun hats and long sleeves, to block out the sun's harmful rays.

* Avoid exposure to the midday sun, when your shadow is shortest (i.e when the sun in straight on above your head).

* Do a simple skin self-exam regularly for anything unusual, like a change in the texture, size, or color of a mole, or a sore that does not heal.

* Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15, reapplying frequently. But be careful not to let sunscreen encourage you to spend even more time in the sun.

Remember, protect yourself from skin cancer.
