Pop quiz: What is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer but also the most easily prevented? The answer? Skin cancer.

They will give you enough protection during your regular daily activities, but they are not enough for prolonged exposure. Whether at the ballpark, pool, or beach (even on a cloudy day) you should always apply a true suncreen 30 minutes prior to outdoor activities. And of course, you should reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. Even if you are not succeptible to burning or have a darker skin tone, you still need sun protection. In addition to sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and cover-ups are great ways to protect against sun exposure.

So go ahead, and put some on!
