    Aging risk prompts teen sunscreen use

    Researchers found that students who viewed educational videos on UV-induced premature aging had a significant increase in sunscreen use over those students who viewed educational videos on skin cancer risk.

    While awareness improved in both groups within the 50 high school students over the 2012 study, the group that watched the appearance focused video had a greater increase in sunscreen use.

    The authors note that appearance-focused video education appears to be more effective in promoting sunscreen use in adolescents.

    The findings were reported in the February Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
