Know the Facts

Did you know???
Most melanomas are directly attributed to overexposure from UV light.

Did you know?

People with fair skin are at a higher risk of developing melanoma; yet it does not discriminate. Melanoma is less frequently diagnosed among African-Americans, Latinos, and Asians; however, when diagnosed in these populations it is more likely diagnosed at a later stage.
Did you know?
While it's important to prevent a sunburn before the age of 18, it's also important to protect your skin at all ages because most of your sun exposure occurs after the age of 18!  The moral of the story is it's never too late (or too early) to cover up and protect your skin!
 Lastly, did you know?

There is no such thing a safe tan, including a base tan.  Base tans don't add protection to your skin, they only increase harmful exposure to more UV radiation, thereby increasing your risk for skin cancer!
