Wise choices in preventing skin cancer

Wise choices in preventing skin cancer

Avoid exposure to the midday sun, when your shadow is shortest (from 10am to 2pm standard time or 11am to 3pm daylight savings time).
Wear protective clothing, such as sun hat and long sleeves, to block out the sun's harmful rays. Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15, reapplying frequently. But be careful not to let sunscreen encourage you to spend even more time in the sun.
Do a simple skin self-exam regularly for anything unusual, like a change in the size, texture, or color of a mole, or a sore that does not heal.
