Correct

- "So the most important thing I can do is avoid direct sunlight exposure?"

- "Scrubing my skin well to slough off the dead cells after being in the sun will help reduce my risk of getting skin cancer."

One of the most effective prevention methods to avoid skin cancer is staying out of direct sunlight, tanning booths are still harmful, and depending on the tone of your skin as well as the length of time spent in the sun, the SPF coverage can range. Scrubbing the skin thoroughly does not help in preventing skin cancer.
