As you spend more time in the sun, make sure you are protecting your skin from harmful sunrays. By taking preventive steps to keep your skin healthy, you can lower your risk of skin cancer. When you go outside, consider these tips to protect yourself from sun damage:

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
  • Shield your eyes with sunglasses
  • Stay in the shade when you can
