If you notice any irregular spots on your skin, or anything changing, itching or bleeding, see a board-certified dermatologist.

Now some figures to give you chills:

  • Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States.
  • Current estimates are that 1 in 5 americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
  • On average, one american dies from melanoma every hour.

Now, how about checking some screen lotion to protect ourselves, shall we?

I recommend a sunscreen from NEUTROGENA: Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45. It’s not the cheapest, but with lots a great reviews.
