A little bit of built-in SPF doesn't mean you're off the hook. See why every complexion under the sun is at risk
The Solution: Know your bod
Just because you can't see it with a quick glance in the mirror doesn't mean it's not there. Vow to thoroughly examine your skin head-to-toe every month. Knowing your body will help you spot new moles or other abnormalities (most people stop getting new ones after 25). In addition to your monthly self-exam, get a professional skin exam every year. Find a free skin cancer screening or visit your physician, who can help you with the ABCDE's (asymmetry, border, color, diameter, evolution) of any skin spots you find.
