Beaches and pools aren't the only places where you should be concered about protecting your skin.
Research shows developing skin cancer usually depends upon total lifetime sun exposure.

Doctors say all skin is sensitive to the sun.
Most everyone with skin cancer can recall at least one time in their life when they had a really severe sunburn.
Sun damaged skin looks wrinkled, develops brown spots or gets leathery.
From there, small scaly pre-cancerous bumps may develop.
If they aren't recognized and treated, they can evolve into full blown cancer.
Dermatologists warn not to be fooled into thinking that putting on a t-shirt is enough to protect you.
