Summer Spotlight on Skincare

Throughout the summer, the Presby Bulletin will be giving you the lowdown on what’s fact and what’s fiction when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun’s rays.

Fact or Fiction: One sunburn won’t raise your risk of skin cancer.

FICTION: Sunburns damage DNA which can lead to the formation of cancer cells, but it’s a slow process. In fact, sunburns in childhood and young adulthood can lead to significant damage later on.
