Skin Cancer Awareness Month
01 May 2016
For those of you who don’t know, today starts the beginning of Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with over two million people diagnosed annually. Although it is the most common, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
The number one cause of skin cancer is UV radiation from sun exposure. Some less common causes of skin cancer include exposure to UV radiation from tanning beds, constant exposure to X-Rays, and exposure to certain chemicals.
Below is a list of Tribeca MedSpa’s most popular sunscreens, allowing you to stay safe and healthy while having fun in the sun!
