In partnership with Mount Sinai Medical Center, the city of Miami Beach in Florida is offering beach goers free sunscreen via the 50 sunscreen dispensers scattered around public pools, parks, and beach access points. This is the first coordinated effort by the city and a national hospital center to help fight skin cancer.
The state of Florida is second behind California in incidents of reported cases of melanoma. And that number is rising too. Hopefully Miami’s efforts to encourage the use of sunscreens will carry over into other cities.
The free sunscreens in the dispensers are from Miami’s own official skincare line called MB — Miami Beach Suncare. It is SPF 30 rated, water resistant for 80 minutes, and contains a triple acting sea kelp to protect and add shine to skin.
Way to go Miami Beach to set an example on America’s fight against skin cancer!
