Melanoma, commonly referred to as skin cancer, is the deadliest form of cancer, but it's also the most preventable. Neutrogena is the leader in the sun protection category, not only offering a wide range of SPF products and sunscreen, but this month they're also releasing some great tools and resources to inform and educate about skin cancer and the benefits of sunscreen.
You should apply sunscreen every time you head outdoors or are directly exposed to sunlight (yes you can still get a sunburn through the windows in your home) preferably an SPF of 30 or higher. If you’re planning to be outdoors for an extended period, apply every 2 hours, and more if you’re going to be in the water. When it comes to the type of sunscreen to use, Neutrogena has something for everyone and they are also debuting new resources to help educate everyone on skin cancer.
This month Neutrogena is promoting further awareness and education around skin cancer. Neutrogena Studios, the new content engine from the brand, is releasing their first documentary "In the Sun" available on YouTube and other streaming platforms. The film was executive produced by Kerry Washington, one of their longtime brand ambassadors and follows the skin health journeys of seven families navigating the long-term effects of being in the sun, while still living vibrant lives.

Neutrogena also launched a self exam tool on neutrogena.com which shows you how to properly identify the early signs of skin cancer.
