Free Sunscreen May Soon Be Available on the Streets of New York City

Play in the sun with no worries of sunburn, or the risk of skin cancer.

With summer well underway, this means the season of sunburns is here, as well as possibly increasing your risk of skin cancer with the prolonged exposure under the sun. Posing as a serious health concern to the masses, New York’s comptroller Scott Stringer has proposed the installation of sunscreen dispensers at city parks, pools, and beaches to provide free SPF 30 sunscreen. This program has already been adopted in Miami, where 50 dispensers installed in parks and on beaches pump out an SPF 30 lotion infused with sea kelp supplied by a private company, Destination Brands. The dispensers were provided by the city’s hospital Mount Sinai Medical Center and the program is managed by the city. Boston has adopted a similar program as well. While Stringer has not gone into specifics on how he is going to implement this in NYC, he has provided assurance that citizens of NY will not have to pay a single dime to enjoy this free service.

While this is still in the works, remember to slather on your sunscreen before heading out. Check out this wash-on sunscreen that does not leave an undesirable greasy feeling.
