During the summer months, how can people practice safe sun?

Always wear your sunscreen.  On the weekends, put on a moisturizer right when you wake up in the morning.  It should be at least an SPF of 30.

Which sunscreens do you recommend?

Some of the best ones are the ones that contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Neutrogena makes a good sunscreen and Aveeno makes good sunscreens.

How do you feel about tanning beds and tanning outdoors?

If we’re going to get melanoma, the two biggest predictive factors are family history and the number of moles on your body.  The basal-cell and squamous-cell cancers are very sun related.  The sun and tanning beds disintegrate collagen, which causes wrinkles.  Most people stop tanning due to wrinkles than skin cancer.

How do you feel about self-tanners?

I love them!  They’re great!
