Summer is here and the sun rays can be deadly. Beautiful tans are coveted but there is no such thing as a healthy tan. Be prepared for the sun with products that have at least a 15 SPF or higher and seek the shade between the hours of 10AM – 4PM.

According to research from www.skincancer.org 90% of non melanoma skin cancers and 65% of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. Learn how to protect yourself by covering up, examining your skin and use year round protection.
