Be Sun Smart
It’s no secret that we crave the warm sunshine on our skin, especially this time of year.

But, overexposure (something that happens all too frequently during the summer months) can contribute to wrinkles and other signs of pre-mature aging.

And, those sizzling sunburns are a leading cause of skin cancer.

Author Kim Erickson joins Dr. Jeff to explain how the sun can keep you healthy, but can also harm you.

She discusses the risk factors and signs of skin cancer.

Plus, Kim and Dr. Jeff share all of the surprising ways you are becoming overexposed... not simply during the summer, but all year long.
