Quotes

"If you spend only one hour in the sun, SPF 15 is enough. But if you spend more time exposed, you have to increase the factor according to the amount of time you spend in the sun" reiterates Dr Moyal. Applying it uniformly is another important practice
"The best prevention is to minimise alcohol and get into the local timetime zone as quickly as possible, even on the flight. Meals, sleep, exercise and exposure to light should all be taken in the local timetime zone as soon as possible.”"
"No one really knows why," she said. "We think mismarketing of sunscreen really contributes to that problem by giving consumers the idea that they can rely on sunscreen and be out all day safely in the sun. People misuse sunscreen and get more sunburns, not fewer."
"Although there are many factors related to skin cancer development, excessive sun exposure, particularly as a young person, is probably the most important single issue" Dr. Whitman told dailyRx News
