The next time you’re out in the sun and worrying about getting dark, remember: The very pigment or melanin that gives us our unique skin tone is what’s offering us protection. “Simply put, melanin is the skin’s natural defence against UV rays,” said Dr Calvin Chan, the medical director of Calvin Chan Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. “Melanin helps to dissipate some UV light into heat, thus blocking UV radiation from reaching and damaging skin’s DNA.” Of course, we know that excessive UV radiation isn’t good for us. It’s a precursor to DNA damage, which as Dr Chan explained, can lead to cancer-causing mutations in the skin. Yet, skin cancer prevention doesn’t always top our list when it comes to skincare.

After all, most skin cancer reports are usually about fair-skinned folks from the other side of the world, right?

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — It was all about the last second shots and this time Maverick Luka Doncic slammed the scorer’s table in joy, not anger. The Dallas sensation hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining — his second go-ahead 3 in the final minute — and the Mavs avoided a fourth-quarter collapse in a 110-107 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.
