Every year, we become increasingly excited when the warmer weather rolls around, but do we really take the time to assess the increased hazards to our skin? The Skin Cancer Foundation claims that one in five individuals will develop skin cancer, and recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher daily. It's also advised to never seek a tan, and always protect against a sunburn; both result from DNA damage that can increase the likelihood of developing skin cancer.
Many people are willing to risk sun damage because they find sunscreens to be more trouble than they're worth. Complaints about sunscreen include a greasy or noticeable white residue on the skin or stinging and irritation.
No matter what your issue with sunscreen may be, we offer a selection of top sunscreens that will eliminate any of your excuses for not wearing sun protection. Visit our SkinCare 101 section for more useful information on Skin Cancer Awareness:
