Skin cancer, and any type of cancer, is serious. In fact, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Visiting Angels North Fort Myers discusses how you can reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. 

If you would like to protect your skin, you should remember to apply sunscreen before you head outdoors. Sunscreen can protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Visiting Angels North Fort Myers recommends investing in a sun screen that has an SPF above 15, or 30 if you are an active person. Also, remember to reapply your sunscreen as often as needed while you are outside. 

Other than applying sunscreen, you can also make sure to wear protective clothing while you are outside. Protective clothing will prevent the sun rays from getting to your skin as easily. You can carry around an umbrella or hat to protect your head from the sun. Plus, you can wear breathable and light clothing to cover your arms and legs.
