NEW YORK, May 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, just five sunburns before the age of 20 can double your risk of developing melanoma. Children are at a higher risk for UV-induced sun damage and are even more susceptible to sunburns than adults due to their more thin, sensitive skin, and under-developed natural defense mechanisms. Since 2010, La Roche-Posay has proudly supported skin cancer prevention through education on sun safe behaviors, smarter sun protection, and access to free skin checks through its SOS – Save Our Skin Campaign. The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sunscreen range is trusted by dermatologists worldwide for providing safe and effective UVA and UVB protection.
