May is National Skin Cancer Prevention and Detection Month

Longer days, warmer weather, don’t forget that sunscreen.  Protect the skin you’re in!

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and the most preventable cause of skin cancer is over exposure to UV light (from the sun or artificial sources).

How to reduce your risk:

  • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
  • Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs.
  • Wear a hat.
  • Wear sunglasses.
  • Use sunscreen of at least SPF 15.
  • Avoid indoor tanning.
