Never Stop Protecting Your Skin

As we age, our skin starts to change and there is a higher risk for skin cancer. Over the course of our lives our skin will be exposed to some sort of sun damage. From that one time we forgot to put sun screen on and got a horrible burn to the time we used that tanning bed. It's just how much damage has our skin has endured. But with that being said we really don't know how much damage can trigger skin cancer. It could be from the five bad burns you got when you were younger or the one bad burn you got during older age. Even if you think you will get skin cancer and that there's nothing you can do, you're wrong. Sun protection is important throughout our lives and we should never stop taking care of our skin. 

The first rule is to stay out of tanning beds. You are at a higher risk of developing skin cancer by exposing yourself to the ultraviolet radiation. Just stay away! Second, make sure you are protecting your skin from the sun by wearing sun screen and protective clothing. This includes wearing a hat, sunglasses, and clothing that covers your body. Lastly, check your skin! Make sure to be giving yourself self exams and check for anything that looks out of place. Every year make an appointment with your doctor to get a professional skin exam. 

Besides not getting skin cancer at all, the goal is to be able to discover skin cancer at an early stage, so that it can be treated. You may think it's too late to change the past and getting skin cancer is inevitable but there are so many things you can do to reduce your risk.
