Consider this: the incidence of skin cancer is rising at an alarming rate. Treatment performed for non-melanoma skin cancers in the United States nearly doubled from 1994 to 2006. Specifically, the total number of new non-melanoma skin cancers in 2006 was estimated to be more than 3.5 million. And sunscreen—specifically a broad-spectrum, water-resistant formula with at least SPF 30—is the number one thing on doctors’ lists of things you can do to prevent skin cancer.
With all you know about skin cancer, do you wear sunscreen every single day? And do you cover just your face? Or every exposed bit of skin, as doctors advise?
At ADVANCED, we have a fantastic array of broad spectrum sunscreens to suit your needs.
