National Sunscreen Day reminds people to protect their skin

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

People are still enjoying our beaches with this great weather, and hopefully they are lathering up sunscreen because it's National Sunscreen Day.

Doctors encourage wearing sunscreen every day, even if you think you're going to be inside all day.

They say it's a good habit, like brushing your teeth.

Even some young fishermen wearing clothes said they put it on.

"You'll still get burned bad," said Garret Brown of Effingham County. "I've gone without it before."

And yes, sunscreens should be used on cloudy days. UV rays can penetrate through clouds.
