No matter how diligent you were with the sunscreen application over summer, regular exposure to the sun's rays can cause subtle changes to your skin's condition. When you know your skin, you're equipped to identify anything that's worth getting checked.
Often, skin cancer doesn't hurt or cause bothersome symptoms, which means it's up to you to look for it. The sooner you catch a potential issue, the more likely you are to manage the problem with minimal intervention.
It can be a good idea to mark regular dates on your calendar or set reminders in your phone to ensure you're checking your skin at set intervals throughout the year, too.
