Skin cancer prevention reminders

May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and with the weather warming up, it’s a good time to remind ourselves about what can be done daily to reduce the risk of contracting this common cancer.

Here are a few tips:

• Apply sunscreen daily 30 minutes before exposure to sun. Use a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB radiation.

• Reapply sunscreen every two hours – more often if swimming or sweating.

• Avoid tanning and UV tanning beds.

• Wear a hat and sunglasses to keep sun off your face.

• Eat fruits and veggies – these foods replace antioxidants damaged by UV light exposure.
