QUICK TIP: Get A Skin Screening!

Back in July, I had a skin screening for possible traces of skin cancer. Luckily the Dermatologist didn't find any moles that I should be worried about. However, I did walk away with an interesting piece of info:

For people of color, malignant moles show up in the hands and feet first.

Thus, reiterating the importance of sunscreen for everyone—no matter your skin color. So if you spot a suspicious mole on your hands or feet, go and see a doc!
