Protect your skin — it could save your life.
Ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) radiation from the sun and indoor tanning damages the epidermis, the skin’s top layer. Long-term sun exposure, sunbathing, using indoor tanning, and having sunburns all increase your chance of developing skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the United States. Sun exposure also causes premature aging, wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin tone. Protection from damaging and dangerous ultraviolet radiation is important year-round.
