Lindsay Lohan has exposed feet in slippers.
Anthony Kontos, a podiatric surgeon, has warned women to avoid wearing flimsy footwear like slippers, sandals and flip flops or whatever you may call them.
These kinds of footwear expose the tops of feet to the sun. Feet have thin skin on the top and may develop moles and bruises. These skin developments may be cancerous. Skin cancer can break out on the soles, top of feet, between toes and under the nails.
A few symptoms of malignant melanoma include itchiness and bleeding in moles. Dr. Kontos would advise people to use sunscreen on their exposed feet. Due to the horizontal position of the feet in relation to the body, the feet receive maximum exposure to UV radiation. Thus, they need protection.
