Outsmart the Summer Sun at Any Age
Date:4/11/2008

HOUSTON, April 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The warmer months entice people of all ages to come forth from their winter havens - and most need to be reminded about the importance of sun protection. From young children to teens to mature adults, there are dozens of simple ways to change skin cancer prevention from a chore into a healthy habit.

Carol Drucker, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Dermatology at The University of Texas M. D.

Anderson, the nation's top-ranked cancer center, Drucker has considerable expertise on reducing skin cancer risk, and has helpful summer skin care tips for every age.

"Parents may be surprised by how quickly their child becomes accustomed to this daily ritual."

* Try not to schedule outdoor activity between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and seek playgrounds where shade - from trees or awnings - is plentiful. If your child has to be outdoors during these hours, be sure they're protected from the sun with a hat, sunglasses, etc.

* Add SPF to the weekly wash. According to Drucker, relatively inexpensive products are available to put in the wash to add SPF protection to normal clothing for up to 20 washes. "This works great for kids of all ages, including stubborn teenagers - they won't even know it's there."

Teens
