We all know about the importance of wearing sunscreen. Even so, it's possible to forget to put it on or reapply it throughout the day. Reminding yourself to do this quick task every day can make a big difference. Just ask Witney Carson. The Dancing With the Stars veteran was diagnosed with melanoma on her toe when she was just 19. Ever since, she has been very mindful of her sun protection, becoming a spokesperson for one of her favorite brands, EltaMD.

Witney told E!, "My partnership with EltaMD was such an honor. They do such amazing work and I'm just so excited to be working with them. Ever since I was diagnosed, sun protection has been very close to my heart. I want to raise awareness for the youth, that early protection is so important and detrimental to your health. Sometimes it can be life or death and it is completely preventable with proper sun protection."

She explained, "This campaign has been important for us to emphasize protecting all parts of your body, even your feet!" Witney shared her favorite sunscreen from the brand along with some additional summer essentials that she keeps in her beach bag, including this $8 mascara with 59,900+ 5-star reviews.
