After a long cold Maine winter, it's hard to resist the urge to head outside and catch some rays. Don't forget: the sun's rays are surprisingly strong this time of year, and your skin is more vulnerable when it's pale.
Tips to help to prevent melanoma:
People with pale skin are more susceptible to burning and melanoma.
Stay out of direct sunlight when the rays of the sun are the strongest.
Pick out an appropriate sunscreen and re-apply, especially if you get wet or perspire.
