Stay protected gentlemen.
More men than ever are dying from skin cancer simply because they are forgetting the importance of sunscreen.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, board-certified dermatologist Corey L. Hartman said, “I ask every person that I perform a skin examination on whether or not they wear sunscreen daily. Easily 70 percent of male patients say that they do not.“
It is strongly recommended that everyone put on sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every single day and to not forget to cover their face and neck.
Dermatologist Antony Nakhla said, “It is estimated that melanoma will affect 1 in 27 men and 1 in 40 for women in their lifetimes.” And what’s worse is that cases of skin cancer have gone up every year.
Why are men not wearing sunscreen?
When it comes to applying lotions and creams to the body, women traditionally do it more often then men and it is partly due to the way mainstream advertising has shaped American culture.
Usually, skin care products are generally targeted towards women more than men.
Also, a lot of men aren’t used to applying lotions very often and tend to not even think about sunscreen on a daily basis.
