Decrease your risk for getting Skin Cancer

Despite risks, many believe that suntans look healthy and attractive. As children and adults we are exposed to dangerous Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

More than 90% of all skin cancers are the result of exposure to ultraviolet radiation. UVA rays may have a significant effect on the development of melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer. UV exposure can damage your immune system and your skin, causing a wrinkled, leathery appearance or premature aging.
