Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lives? That’s crazy! Bella Thorne is doing everything she can to not end up a part of that scary statistic, starting with simply wearing sunscreen!

Sure, we all want beautifully bronzed skin, especially for the summer, Bella Thorne included! But the actress knows the dangers of sun damaged skin, and she’s putting her foot down! The NEUTROGENA Brand Ambassador is explaining how YOU can get that bronzed look you desire, without paying the price later on in life — watch her video below!

“Think a tanning bed is safer than UV rays from the sun? Think again! I found out that the UV radiation from tanning beds can be up 15 times stronger than the sun. Um, hello — i’ll pass! If you’re looking for a bronzed look, stick to sunless tanner and chose skin health, like me,” NEUTROGENA Brand Ambassador Bella explained in the video above, which was created for the company’s #ChooseSkinHealth campaign.

Jennifer Garner, another Brand Ambassador, also explained the importance of skin health in another informative clip. She said, “Applying sunscreen is such an easy step towards skin health – yet sun cancer has reached epidemic levels. This is an issue that needs to be at the forefront.”

The beautiful Kerry Washington is another star who is taking a stand. “I learned working with Neutrogena that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer, yet only 20% use SPF daily. I’m taking a stand because I know we can do better,” she explained.

You, too, can join the movement by posting a picture of the ways you are making a difference in your own skin health and hashtag #ChooseSkinHealth! HollywoodLifers, will you make the effort to improve your own sin health? Let us know in the comments below!
