    I think we can all agree that one of the best parts of summer is being able to show a little skin in our cute floral dresses and skirts or daring denim cut offs. But there's always a dark side. Recent statistics revealed that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. Also, did you know 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer? Scary, right?

    Therefore, practicing sun and skin safety is absolutely crucial to our health.

    Aside from the obvious reapplication and copious amounts of sunscreen  that need to be reapplied every few hours, prevention is clearly the key.

    La Roche-Pochay is continuing it's 'Save Our Skin' initiative for it's third consecutive year, advocating for sun safety nationwide. One of the coolest components of the program is that it includes a free iPhone application called MyUVCheck. The application uses location-based services to assess the strength of UVA (aging) rays and UVB  (burning) rays.

    The key is early diagnoses, which results in an 80% cure rate, so schedule a full body check up with your dermatologist who will then, depending on a variety of factors, let you know how often you should get your body checked.
