According to Cancer Research UK, my skin type is ‘Type IV’, which means that it rarely burns, often tans. It tends to have dark brown eyes and hair. Being a dark skinned person, I have a very low risk of getting skin cancer. The primary reason of skin cancer is the UV exposure. I just came to know that in Kanpur, today’s UV Index is 4/16 (current temperature is ), which according to this chart, is “low” for my skin type. That means I do not need to have any skin protection today. That certainly does not mean, no matter how much I’d like to, that I should strip down to my skin and wander around naked in front of the girls’ hostels; if I do that, I might not get skin cancer, I’ll surely end up in hospital bed for dehydrated muscles.
