We know you’re diligently taking our advice and covering and protecting your skin from the sun’s fierce rays.
After all, there is absolutely no good reasons to undo all your hard winter work to keep your skin looking fabulous, now is there?
But there are 8 areas that get overlooked—and cooked—every summer. So we thought we would remind you to protect these areas, especially if you’re on the beach or by the pool.
Scalp- This is a common area for skin cancer, believe it or not! Use spray on or powder sunscreens or just a good old-fashioned hat.
Ears- Pre-cancerous lesions show up on the ears, especially on the driver’s side. Sun through a car window is stronger. Keep some sunscreen in your car.
Eyelids- This one really hurts when they get burned. The eye area is the thinnest skin on the body, so this is a real telltale ager.
Swimsuit Edges- Ouch! Apply sunscreen before you put on your swimsuit and give it a chance to dry first.
Neck & Chest- Basal cell and squamous cell cancers love these areas. Liberally apply sunscreen to avoid such nastiness.
Lips, Hands & Feet- Lips can be tricky to cover, but with a bodily internal spread rate of up to 20%, it’s best to be safe. Don’t forget your hands and feet, too.
Now that you’re officially protected, go have fun!
