20 percent of Americans will eventually get some form of skin cancer. The majority of us know to wear sunscreen daily, stay out of the sun during the peak hours of 10 AM to 4 PM, and ditch the tanning salons. But there are some other surprising things to know about skin cancer:

The Umbrella At The Beach:

Yes, you should be using an umbrella at the beach if you are kicking back enjoying the wonderful sounds and feel of the beach. But don’t let the Umbrella be your only source of combat against the suns rays. The sun and water are reflecting the suns rays so an Umbrella is not enough. You also need to be wearing sunscreen. When applying, remember to cover your hands, neck, ears, and hairline. Reapply every two hours.

Your Alcohol Consumption:

A study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that the more you drink the higher your risk of skin cancer. Why? Because alcohol lowers antioxidant levels in your body, which means you have less natural protection against UV rays. Of course, if you drink a lot it can impair your judgment and make you forget to get out of the sun or put that sunscreen on in a timely manner.
