Dr. Adam Mamelak talks with KEYE about the X Games!
Dr. Adam Mamelak, a board certified Dermatologist in Austin, TX, was interviewed to inform Austinites how they can protect their skin while enjoying the X Games. This is definitely an exciting event for all of us, and there will be many in attendance. Here’s what Dr. Mamelak had to say to those who plan to stick out it in the sun all day long:
‘Dermatologist Dr. Adam Mamelak with St. David’s says one in five Americans will develop skin cancer. The good news is you can prevent it, especially while watching these high flying tricks. “Making sure you are wearing long sleeves, you’re wearing a hat, sun glasses to protect yourself,” said Mamelak. Bottom line if you are going to the track, stick to the shady side and apply sunscreen every hour.’
