May is National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Awareness Month.  It’s important that we all protect the skin we’re in. Just because the sun isn’t shining doesn’t mean we don’t get exposed to harmful ultraviolet rays. Be sure to wear SPF 20 (or higher) each and every day, especially when it’s cloudy.  If you must be in the sun, try to limit your exposure time between 10AM and 4PM, when the sun’s rays are the most harmful.  Wear a large brimmed hat to cover your ears.  Make it a point to see your physician every year for a full-body skin check.  Watch for any new moles or mole changes.  If you notice skin changes, contact your physician for further examination.
