MYTH: I don’t ever burn and always tan so I don’t have to worry about skin cancer or aging from sun exposure.

MYTH: I don’t ever burn and always tan so I don’t have to worry about skin cancer or aging from sun exposure.

“While fair skin tones do tend to burn easier, those with olive and dark skin tones don’t have a get-out-of-jail-free card when it comes to the sun and its effects. In fact, while skin cancer rates are indeed higher in Caucasians, they are increasing among all ethnicities and it may be because not burning easily can be a curse rather than a blessing when it comes to avoiding skin cancers. A sunburn is a bit like an alarm that goes off a little too late (but better late than never), telling us our bodies are in danger. Skin that doesn’t burn gives us a false sense of security that masks the sun damage skin is really getting.

Men and women of ALL colors shapes and sizes experience sun effects ranging from skin damage, to premature aging to, in some cases, even death, so don’t slack off on sun protection. Regardless of skin tone or our ability to tan, we’re all one under the sun.”DermRF
