      According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetimes—that’s more than 350 people per hour. But while those stats may sound scary, if you’re well-informed and equipped with some key know-how, you can help reduce your chances of becoming a statistic.

      And part of that education means learning about the importance of sunscreen.

      “When used appropriately, sunscreen can help prevent skin cancer and photoaging,” says Steven Wang, M.D., director of dermatologic surgery and dermatology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Basking Ridge, NJ.

      But not enough of us actually use sunscreen appropriately, whether we apply too little or don’t reapply frequently enough. Plus, all the terms on those labels can certainly add confusion to the equation.

      So we created this infographic to help serve as your sun-smarts primer. It’s packed with info on how to use sunscreen effectively—along with other facts and tips that can help safeguard your skin this sunny summer season.
