The 'Eucerin' chart explains the danger that sun exposure has on the skin. While laying out in the sun, it is always smart to wear a protective shield of sunblock to prevent any serious sun burns, or worse -- cancer.

According the statistics presented in this chart, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer, and that risk doubles if one has been sunburned more than five times. Another horrifying fact presented here is that every hour somebody dies of melanoma, and 90 percent of those cases are found in girls aged 10-19.

People often get caught up in the excitement of nice weather and allow themselves to burn, without taking into consideration the serious side-effects. The 'Eucerin' chart is definitely a good reminder.
