Quick and simple ways to prevent skin cancer

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Following some simple steps may help people reduce their risk of developing skin cancer, the most common form of cancer, says expert.

The easiest way to prevent skin cancer is to protect your skin with clothing, said board-certified dermatologist Zoe D. Draelos, MD, FAAD, consulting professor at Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, N.C.

He suggests carrying a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses before going outside.

Wearing a long-sleeved shirt and pants also can help protect from the damaging rays of the sun, he added.

In addition, Dr. Draelos shares these additional tips for preventing skin cancer:

Apply sunscreen every day – When you are going to be outside, even on cloudy days, apply sunscreen to all skin that will not be covered by clothing. Reapply approximately every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. Use a broad- spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen that protects the skin against both UVA and UVB rays and that has an SPF of at least 30.
