Summer 2019 is the time for everyone, everywhere to strive to be sun safe. The occasion of skin cancer is at epidemic levels. That being said, over the past 5 decades, there have been a lot of advances in sunscreen science, education and advocacy in sun habits and living a healthy life. The American Academy of Dermatology, the American Cancer Society, the Skin Cancer Foundation and FDA encourage people to wear sunscreen as part of a sun-safe lifestyle to prevent damage from UV rays, including sunburn, premature aging and skin cancer. Sunscreen formulated with FDA-approved ingredients are available in many forms that feel good on your skin. The best sunscreen is the one you will wear consistently, every day.
More and more Americans are at risk for sun damage: a burn, sun spots and wrinkles, or sometimes cancer.
Not all sunscreens provide the same protection you want and need. Make sure your sunscreen isn’t taken away.
Being sun safe means good sun protection habits. Quality sunscreen, high SPF, protective clothing, and more.
