Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and almost 20 Americans die from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every day.1

- Seeking shade
- Wearing sun-protective clothing
- Applying sunscreen to all skin not covered by clothing
