As the Memorial Day Weekend approaches and our fun in the sun outdoor activities increase, it is important to remember to protect your skin from the UVA and UVB rays. Sun protection is essential to skin cancer prevention. About 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers and about 86 percent of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. If you will be in the sun for extended periods, wear brimmed hats, long sleeves and pants, and of course find and use a good quality sunscreen.
Learn the recommended times to reapply and the highest rated sunscreen lotions and sprays on the market according to Consumer Reports tests.
