4 tips to avoid sun damage

4 tips to avoid sun damage
While melanoma accounts for just 1% of all skin cancers, it causes the majority of skin cancer-related deaths. The incidence of melanoma has been steadily increasing for the last 30 years – especially in adolescents and young adults.
The majority of melanoma cases occur due to a combination of genetics and ultraviolet exposure from the sun and artificial ultraviolet light (UV) through tanning beds.
Tips to avoid sun damage:
  • Stay out of the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when sunlight is most direct
  • Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protection. The sunscreen should be "broad spectrum," which means it protects against both UVA and UVB rays
  • Apply 1 to 2 ounces of sunscreen (the size of a pingpong ball)
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more often if you sweat a lot. You should also reapply after getting out of the water
