If you wore flip-flips and a baseball cap, you were taking a risk, because they expose your ear tops and foot tops to the sun (and to skin cancer). And who remembers to put suntan lotion on these two places? There's even more of a problem if you drove to the beach.
Dermatologist Anthony Peterson says, "Those areas of their bodies have very little protection. Combine that with the fact that most people using sunscreen frequently overlook those parts of their bodies when applying it."
Believe it or not, dermatologists say we should use a sunscreen with an SPF of least 15 EVERY day, whether or not we're heading for the beach. And we should wear it in the fall as well as in the summer.
