Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. Experts say experiencing 5 or more
blistering sunburns when you are 15 to 20 years old may increase melanoma risk by 80%. A
new study following over 144,000 women, age 40 to 75, found that those who regularly used
a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more were 33% less likely to develop melanoma than those
who used a weaker sunscreen. Avoid using sunscreen on infants younger than 6 months old,
though. To protect them, keep them out of the sun when possible. Dress them in lightweight
clothing that covers arms and legs and hats to protect their head and face. Sun-protective swim
wear is a good idea for small children.
