UV exposure is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer. During Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the American Academy of Dermatology is asking "Do You Use Protection?" and is encouraging you to practice safe sun every time you are outdoors. Seek shade, wear protective clothing, and use a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30+ to reduce your risk.

They use protection. Do you?

Everyone needs to use protection. No matter your age, gender or race, the AAD’s new video, “Do You Use Protection?” reminds you about the importance of protecting your skin anytime you’re outdoors.
