ASC_PreventSkinCancer_Ebook_COVER_copy

Summer is a great time to be outdoors, but too much sun can damage your skin. While you think you may look healthier with a tan, the sun actually accelerates the effects of aging and increases your risk for developing skin cancer. 

Too much sun exposure may cause:

  • Pre-cancerous and cancerous (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) skin lesions 
  • Benign tumors
  • Fine and coarse wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Discolored areas of the skin, called mottled pigmentation
  • Sallowness -- a yellow discoloration of the skin
  • Telangiectasias -- the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
  • Elastosis -- the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue (causing lines and wrinkles)

Find out some easy ways to help prevent these and stay safe in the sun.
