5. Your ears
“People totally forget their ears,” Dr. Carroll says. “A woman who has long hair applies sunscreen and thinks that she’s covered, but she doesn’t realize that she might tuck her hair behind her ear, or later she’ll be playing sports with a ball cap on. That’s why we see more skin cancers on the top of the ear.” When you’re putting sunscreen on your face, give some attention to your ears, too. Like the lips, the ears can be prime targets for aggressive squamous cell carcinoma.
