What tips do you have for a person looking to maintain healthy skin on a budget?

Always make sure one washes his/her face well before going to bed and puts on moisture (nothing fancy, over the counter will do). Visit a dermatologist early to get a baseline of what one’s overall skin looks like so if something “new” develops one can see the changes.

What are the most effective ways to reduce one’s risk of skin cancer?

All the tips are common sense things one should do: don’t sit out in the sun between 11 and 2; wear a hat in the summer; and apply sunscreen when going to the beach, riding a bike or even just walking.

What can local authorities do to reduce the incidence of skin cancer in their area?

Sponsor a free skin cancer screening because skin cancer is very curable in early stage and continue to monitor afterwards.

Given that Europeans have many more options for sunscreen, is this product line over regulated in the United States?

In general, US is much more strict than any other countries in the world with respect to consumer products, particularly in personal health care ones. I don’t think is over-regulated. I feel it is better to be more cautious than find out years later that the product is harmful.
