The Texas sun is rapidly heating up, and the time has come to get serious about protecting yourself against harmful rays. An estimated 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun, and more importantly, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer over the course of a lifetime. It’s crucial to make sun protection top priority when enjoying the outdoors over the coming months. There are so many ways to diminish your risk of skin cancer, from using SPF to wearing hats and clothing items with built-in protection.
However, functional products don’t have to be drab! NorthPark Center has a myriad of options that will keep you stylish and protected this summer. For more tips on how to shield yourself from the sun, watch our segment with WFAA’s Good Morning Texas here.
