Many Americans omit their backs when applying sunscreen
the ONA take:
According to a survey conducted by experts at the American Academy of Dermatology, many people in the United States forget their backs when applying sunscreen.
Of the more than 1,000 Americans surveyed, over one-third indicated they rarely or never apply sunscreen to their backs when they are in the sun. Forty-three percent said they rarely or never ask someone to assist applying sunscreen to their backs.
Researchers found that men were less willing than women to apply sunscreen to their backs or ask for help to apply sunscreen.
Men were also found to be twice as likely as women to be uncomfortable applying sunscreen or asking for help. Of those surveyed, 33% of women and 40% of men said they rarely or never apply sunscreen to their backs.
When asked questions referencing self-checking for skin cancer, 57% indicated they know how to perform a self-check, but only 36% inspect themselves yearly.
