FASHION: FASHION-FORWARD SUN PROTECTION

SUSAN CHON, M.D., assistant professor in the department of dermatology at THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and a board-certified dermatologist, is available to discuss how this season's must-have fashions, like leggings, maxi dresses, big sunglasses and one-piece bathing suits, can offer extra protection against the summer sun: "It's easy to integrate the hottest fashion trends into your skin cancer prevention plan. Wearing clothing that offers extra coverage is great, especially if you're out during the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., because it gives your skin a break from the sun."
