Not just for the Beach & Boating
Did you know that skin cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in the U.S.?*
The dangers of UVB & UVA rays on our skin can affect us even when we are not laying out in the sun. We experience sun exposure when least expected. So we wanted to share some places and instances where we may forget to protect our skin.
As you drive to work, the sun is beating through the glass and can even be magnified, increasing it's intensity on your skin. If you work indoors, you may still not be protected. Not all office windows have a reflective film to keep the harmful rays out.
Sunshine is not seasonal either. We must remember that on cloudy days, all year long, the sun's rays are still peeping through. Although we welcome the sunshine to put a smile on our face, let's still protect our skin with sunscreen!
