The sun, whether in foggy, rainy, or sunny days, is consistently putting out UV radiation. At the center of this radiation is UVA and UVB rays that cause aging in your skin and are the leading causes to skin cancer. By wearing and re-applying a broad spectrum sunscreen blend, you limit the exposure of UV radiation to your skin and drastically decrease the possibility of getting the disease.

• Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, afflicting more than 2 million Americans each year.
• One or more severe sunburns in childhood or adolescence more than double a person’s chances of developing melanoma later in life.
• Sadly every 8 seconds, someone in the US is diagnosed with Melanoma and sadly, one person dies from malignant melanoma every hour.
Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young people aged 15-25 years old. Kids will always enjoy playing outside but using sunscreen is necessary to prevent the harmful effects that the sun can have on young children's skin. Skin cancer is a disease that shows itself right on your skin and it only takes 10 minutes to check your body for any irregularities. Make sure to look for any changes in any moles that are on your skin or if you find any new pigmentation on your skin, be sure to visit your dermatologist for a check up.
