One of the biggest problem is getting children to wear sunblock. Their skin is vulnerable but often they will cry when you apply it and of course you can’t watch them every minute. When your teens head the beach, you can make sure they have sunblock with them, but you can’t make sure they put it on. Statistics show that skin cancer is the common cancers in young adults. The incidence of melanoma among children, adolescents, and young adults has reached epidemic proportions, increasing more than 250% over the past 4 decades, with young females at highest risk for the deadly cancer.

A few tips for avoiding sunburn this summer.
Make sure to put on sunscreen at least 20 minutes prior to leaving the house preferably before getting dressed.
Don’t rely on cotton t shirts. Most aren’t thick enough to provide good protection and that protection is reduced dramatically if it gets wet.
Remember to put sunscreen on ears, tops of bald heads, tops of feet and back of neck.
Make sure to reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating.
You need to apply at least a shot glass full of sunscreen to increase effectiveness.
