A recent study had people apply sunblock to their face, (that’s one of the top spots for skin cancer) then they used a special UV camera to show the spots they missed. The average person missed about TEN PERCENT of their face.
There were two specific areas they missed the most:
1. The bridge of your nose. A whopping 77% of people in the study missed it. And a lot of people also missed the SIDES of the bridge of their nose.
2. Your eyelids. 14% of people in the study missed them, probably because they didn’t want to get sunblock in their eyes. ALso, I thought that was what sunglasses are for, but better safe than sorry! Eyelids are where 5 to 10% of all skin cancers happen, making it another important spot you really don’t want to miss.
