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.
