Brooke’s cancer scare



Brooke Shields has been known for her striking beauty for decades but her sun worshipping ways caught up with her recently when doctors found a pre-cancerous spot on her face.

Shields says she’s doing fine after having the spot removed but it served as a wake-up call to the actress who “used to think it was the best thing in the world to be baking in the sun” and who, as a teen, would indulge in hot-weather rituals like “baby oil and tinfoil and lemon in your hair.”

“All my girlfriends and I would go up on the roof in New York; we didn’t have to be at the beach,” though Brooke says she gave up active tanning over a decade ago she realizes now alot of the damage has already been done: “You think that because you’re not in the sun anymore, it’s all in the past. And then something like that crops up and you’re made aware of how dangerous it really can be.”

Brooke is now the new face of Coppertone Nutrashield which claims to protect from sun damage while promoting skin repair.
