Protecting your skin from skin cancer is often associated with being outdoors in the hot, summer sun. Yet many people don’t realize they are at risk for skin cancer in the winter, especially if they are around snow or at a higher elevation. That’s why professional skier and three-time Olympic medalist Julia Mancuso is serving as a SPOTlighter with the American Academy of Dermatology’s (Academy) SPOT Skin Cancer® initiative, helping get the word out about skin cancer prevention and detection. Mamas please don’t forget to put sunscreen on your kids in winter too!
