Starting at the top of the body, Dr. Barr suggests you pay attention to your hair. Texture, quantity, thinning and hair loss can say a lot about your internal health.

Skin cancer presents a significant threat. Watch for the ABCDEs.

  • Asymmetrical
  • Border that is poorly demarcated
  • Color that varies or changes, non-pigmented or black
  • Diameter that is significantly different from other spots in the area
  • Evolution of the spot over time
Get naked every month to inspect your body for possible skin cancer development. Take notice of what’s on your body so you can take action.

Protect your skin with multiple techniques. Wear a broad-brimmed hat and sun-protective clothing. Add sunscreen after you’ve dressed yourself for sun exposure. The food you eat may also reduce your risk of sunburn.

Listen as Dr. Barr joins Dr. Taz to share tips on keeping your skin healthy and paying attention when your skin sends you messages.
