Sun Safety on NBC

Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Sara Gore on NBC's New York Live about the importance of SPF.  According to the American Cancer Society, over 76K people in the US will be diagnosed with melanoma this year.  You guys, it's a preventable cancer!  Check out the segment here and keep reading to see my safe sun tips.


Always look for an SPF of 15 or higher with UVA/UVB protection plus mineral protection (zinc oxide or titanium dioxide).  See my recent Harper's Bazaar article detailing why here.

Reapply every 90 minutes religiously or as soon as you dry off from a dip in the pool.  

Get checked!  Visit your dermatologist annually for a full body scan.
