summer sun cartoonNorthwest Iowa –Last week we told you about the need for sunscreen to help avoid the development of skin cancer when you’re outside this summer.

Iowa Department of Public Health Medical Director,  Dr. Patricia Quinlisk says you can sometimes use the same sunscreen you had last year, if it appears to still be good.

But Doctor Quinlisk says there are some cases where that date might not be the best guide.

Quinlisk¬†says takes a look at your stock of sunblock to be sure it hasn’t expired before you head out, so you can stay protected from the sun.
