Millennials and Gen Z – Knowledge of Skin Health

As many of you already know, I am a Millennial. Because of my age, I tend to have many patients who are members of the Millennial generation and Generation Z. I recently read some interesting statistics in the journal, Practical Dermatology

Gen Z Survey Findings:

  • 42% are unaware that tanning causes skin cancer
  • 41% are unaware that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are reflected by snow, water, ands sand
  • 33% are unaware that they can get sunburned on a cloudy day

Millennial Survey Findings:

  • 42% are unaware that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can penetrate clothing
  • 37% are unaware that tanning causes skin cancer
  • 23% are unaware that sunburn increases the risk of getting skin cancer

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a yearly skin exam for all adults, even those without a personal or family history of skin cancer.
