Sun Screen

| August 26, 2018

Regardless of your skin colour, we all burn. Many assume that dark skins are naturally protected, but although people with dark shin may not sunburn as easily as those with fair skin, they are still at risk of skin damage from excessive sun exposure.

According to a study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, 15% blacks and Hispanics frequently use sunscreen. 65% African Caribbean women say they’ve never used sunscreen.

Melanoma is the second most common form of cancer in females ages 15-29 and is increasing faster than in men the same age.

So love the skin you’re in and shield it.
