With the warm weather of spring finally here and sunny days on the horizon, please be sure to wear sunscreen when working and spending time outdoors. Sun protection is essential to skin cancer prevention. Overcast days can cause sunburns just as much as a bright, sunny day.
Sunburn may seem like just a temporary irritation, but sunburns can cause long-lasting damage to your skin. About 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers and about 86% of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. Protect yourself with sunscreen and proper articles of clothing.
