Be sun smart
You know the drill–don’t venture outdoors without a slathering of sunscreen. Still, there are a few key areas of your skin you might be leaving vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. Each year in the U.S., nearly 5 million people are treated for skin cancer, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Not to mention, about 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Yikes! Don’t become a statistic. Beyond the usual spots, pay attention to these easy-to-miss places on the body you need to remember when applying sunscreen.
