As you enjoy the beautiful outdoors this summer, it’s important to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. and about 90% of skin cancers are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. The sun can also cause skin damage that leads to premature aging and wrinkles.

“Too many sunburns and sunburns that blister, increase your risk of developing skin cancer. Tanning is often mistaken as a sign of good health.

Excess sun exposure is also what causes aging such as wrinkles and age spots.  Following the tips in the video will help your skin look healthy and young for a lifetime.”
