If you plan to be outdoors this holiday weekend, or anytime, it's important to protect your skin, to help ward off skin cancer, for starters.

There are many products to choose from, including some new sunscreens.

Dr. Amy Lewis, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Yale University, stopped by The Early Show Friday with an array of useful information.

She addressed why you need to be mindful of exposing your skin to the sun's rays, descrbribed the difference between suncreens and sun blocks, gave pointers on how to use them, and went through some of the new suncreens, which are either easier to apply or have more sun protection due to a new formula.
