The AAD’s new PSA, “Looking Good,” uses humor to encourage men to check their skin for the signs of skin cancer and find a partner to help.

#LookingGoodin2016

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, and it is estimated that one person dies from melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer — every hour. The American Academy of Dermatology encourages everyone to make sure their skin is “Looking Good in 2016” by protecting it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays and checking it for signs of skin cancer.

Tell us what motivates you to make sure your skin is "Looking Good in 2016."
