Welcome to the heart of summer — and UV Safety Month. Did you know that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the US? Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer. Of course, UV rays can also cause damage to the skin that results in wrinkles and blotches.
Protect yourself this summer from the sun’s damaging rays by taking the following steps:
