Important Sun Screen Tips for All Shades

Sunscreen is an important part of protecting yourself against harmful sun rays.

When used as directed, sunscreen is proven to:

Decrease your risk of skin cancers and skin precancers. Regular daily use of SPF 15 sunscreen can reduce your risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by about 40 percent, and lower your melanoma risk by 50 percent.

Help prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun, including wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.

There is an ongoing myth that sun rays do not affect melanated people. However, people of all skin colors are at risk for skin cancer, sunburn, and much more. Sunscreen and other protective measures make a difference in how you can protect your family from dangers caused by the sun.
