The sun. It's a beautiful thing, and when it's shining, the streets, parks and beaches get really busy. The city comes alive! But it's not all good. The sun can burn! And, a history of sunburns increases the risk of skin cancer, including melanomas. Sun exposure can also cause wrinkles, dry skin and age spots.
Summer appeared happened so quickly that you may not be quite prepared for fun in the sun. Indeed, despite an increasing awareness of the sun's risks, rates of melanoma -- the deadliest skin cancer -- have tripled over the past 35 years. I'm not a doctor, but I think that with such a pronounced risk, we need to be smart and protect our skin from harmful UV rays. However, not all sunscreens are created equally.
