Is SPF the only way you know how to prevent skin cancer? Well, think again because vaccines for Skin Cancer have now been created!

For the longest time, I thought the only way to prevent skin cancer was to wear my sunscreen and stay out of the sun as much as possible. Isn't that what you were taught as well? Over 50 percent of people around the world go without sunscreen everyday and over 45 percent have never had their skin checked by a medical professional. These numbers are astounding and continually on the rise. With the bronze look more popular than ever, most people want to soak up the sun as much as possible, when really it is in your best interest to only be exposed to the sun in small doses. Now, there is another preventative against skin cancer and it is making a big buzz around the nation. There have been two sets of skin cancer vaccines invented here in the United States and in Germany. Each vaccine varies but its main focus is to stop skin cancer from taking away thousands of lives every year. These vaccines are made up of the latest and greatest technology and will still take a few more years to perfect.

This is a preventative, not a 100 percent permanent option. It is still very important that you always wear at least 30 SPF, a hat, sunglasses and never stay in the sun for too long. Doctors and dermatologists are raving about all the science that has come so far in the sunscreen industry. There are now hassle free sunscreen booths that automatically spray you and powdered make up that comes with SPF in it. There is no excuse when it comes to taking care of your skin and soon you will be able to receive a vaccine that can help that prevention even more. Stay cool this summer, especially in these hot temperatures! Have you heard of this vaccine? If so, would you try it? Let us know in the comments below!
