Dear 16 Year Old Year Me,

     There will always be things you know now, that you wish you knew back when you were younger.  We've all been there.  But what if that something would save your life?  With the summer months approaching, it's so important for people to protect themselves from the sun!! We all want a bronze glow, but at what cost? Did you know only 33% of Americans regularly use sunblock? 

      Malignant melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer and mostly due to sun exposure.  Just one sunburn before the age of 18 doubles your risk of skin cancer.  Protect yourself. Protect your babies, and families. Spread the word.  Please check out this video and pass it may need a tissue box...  

How do you protect yourself from the sun? 


  1. i stay out of the sun as much as possible, I'm a vampire ;-)
    and i wear sunscreen everyday

  2. Thank you for this Post Kristin, It definitely opened my eyes to sun tan lotion something I use very rarely. I will be for sure sharing this video!

  3. It is never sunny here in Ireland maybe just for a week or two during the summer but that's it so I don't have to worry about putting on sun cream lol :)
