Scary fact #1: Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually.
Vanessa Hudgens opened up about how she maintains her healthy, sun-less glow with fashion.
“Do it fashionably by wearing hats and sunglasses. I personally love the hats. I mean like big brimmed are so fun and bohemian now, so youâ€™re being stylish and youâ€™re protecting yourself,â€ the 22-year-old actress shared on the carpet at the 2nd Annual Neutrogena Wave for Change launch.
Scary fact #2: On an average day, more than one million Americans use tanning salons and 71% of those are ages 16-29. Ten minutes in one of those tanning beds matches the cancer-causing effects of 10 minutes in the Mediterranean summer sun.
Fellow Neutrogena ambassador Hayden Panettiere is urging everyone to get a fake tan. A fake, spray tan that is.
â€œMy biggest tip for teens when it comes to tanning is donâ€™t tan. Donâ€™t use the sun. Everyone fakes it nowadays. You know you see these celebrities walking the carpet and theyâ€™ve got these pretty tans. Itâ€™s fake, fake, fake,” Hayden shared.
Scared yet? Yea, us too. Good thing Neutrogena has healthy, sun-less tanners!
