Sun protection practices play a prominent role in dermatology in terms of photoaging, photocarcinogensis, and photodermatoses. This book begins by outlining the various methods of sun protection. It continues to discuss risk factors for sun exposure during spring break among college students; the role sun exposure plays in skin aging; and protection habits and vitamin D levels in children and adolescents with a history of malignancy.
