Who's got your back

Think applying sunscreen to your own back is easy? In the video above, the American Academy of Dermatology uses an ultraviolet (UV) camera to show just how hard it is to cover your own back with sunscreen. As people attempt to apply sunscreen to their own backs – the UV camera quickly reveals all the spots they miss, underscoring the importance of asking friends or loved ones for help.
