Dodge the Dangers of Sun Damage on "Don't Fry Day"

With Memorial Day weekend just ending, many families and friends were out having fun in the sun. Such seasonal festivities remind us of the incredible importance of sun protection, and that’s one reason why The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP) designated Friday, May 27 as “Don’t Fry Day.”

The NCSCP created “Don’t Fry Day” to increase awareness of skin cancer prevention and to encourage people in the United States to shield their skin from the sun while outdoors.

“We are seeing an epidemic of skin cancer and melanoma in this country and it is all due to sun exposure and the increased use of indoor tanning,” Dr. Schlessinger says. “Protecting your skin is a huge part of this, but avoiding unsafe exposures while wearing good sunscreen and clothing goes a long way.”

Learn more about “Don’t Fry Day” and find out a few of Dr. Schlessinger’s highly recommended sun care products here!

"Dear 16-Year-Old Me": A Must-Watch Video on Melanoma

Take a moment to watch this powerful video from the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund, a group devoted to saving lives by promoting awareness of this common and serious skin cancer. This potentially fatal disease is often ignored until it's too late. Share this with a friend and help educate people on the early signs of melanoma and the importance of self-detection.

The Great Debate over Sunscreen Safety

In recent years, there has been several articles about whether ingredients in sunscreens may possibly cause more harm than good. It is important to let our patients and customers know about these debates.

The risks mentioned for products like oxybenzone are theoretical rather than actual. However, skin cancer is a very real risk if sunscreen isn't worn. While newspaper writers may debate the safest sunscreens, the fact is that any sunscreen is better than burning and risking deadly melanoma.

The American Academy of Dermatology agrees and maintains that sunscreen remains a safe, effective form of sun protection. Read more about the AAD's professional position in this debate here.
Children Participating in Outdoor Sports May Have Increased Risk of Developing UV-Related Skin Lesions

Many parents champion the idea of enrolling their children in outdoor sports to encourage exercise, teamwork, and healthy competition. While those are all very valuable benefits, many families aren't aware of the not-so-healthy results of insufficient sun protection while participating in outdoor activities.

According to a recent study in the British Journal of Dermatology, outdoor sports increase the risk of developing UV-related skin lesions in children, suggesting that sun prevention needs to be emphasized for children who practice popular outdoor activities. Get access to the full findings here.
