Walking on Sunshine: Sunscreen Health

By Karen Kier
Pharmacist on behalf of the ONU HealthWise team

Katrina and the Waves released their hit Walking on Sunshine in 1985. It was meant to be an optimistic song, which took on a new meaning in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. 

If you are walking in the sunshine, are you protecting your skin? Two people die of skin cancer every hour in the United States. Five or more sunburns in your life doubles your risk of melanoma (skin cancer). Having your first sunburn as a child increases the risk of skin cancer by 80%. Sun exposure also accelerates skin aging and wrinkling.
