Quick Tip: Watch how you wear your hair in the sun

              Watch how you wear your hair in the sun

The sliver of skin exposed by your part is susceptible to skin cancer, so occasionally shift where you part your hair to cut down on constant UV exposure. When spending time outside, protect vulnerable areas with a spray-on sunscreen—dermatologists prefer those made for skin, not hair—or, if your hair is thinning, wear a hat.

I always wear a hat... and if I'm swimming I use SPF.... I've had skin cancer, and likely will again according to my DR.

My hair is thin, so I always try to wear a hat in the summer. When swimming, I rub sunscreen into the top of my head. Not very attractive, but necessary.

I always wear one of those floppy hats (like pictured above) when I am out by my pool because it sits in full sun.
