Adequately applying sunscreen to your own back can be a difficult task, as demonstrated in the "Who’s Got Your Back?" video. Find a family member or friend who “has your back” when applying sunscreen. In addition, seek shade and wear protective clothing to protect your skin whenever possible.

Check your skin regularly for suspicious spots and ask a partner to help check the hard-to-areas. If you notice anything changing, itching or bleeding on your skin, make an appointment to see a board-certified dermatologist.
