Dr. Sonia Batra
Co-host of “The Doctors,” Dr. Sonia Batra visits Home & Family to talk about May being Skin Cancer Awareness Month. She explains that most common skin cancers are non-melanoma cancers. Melanoma is the deadliest of the skin cancers. She encourages you to re-apply your sunscreen every two hours and every hour if you are in the water, but says most people only apply 1/4th of how much they should be. When applying sunscreen, make sure to not overlook your lips and ears.
DIY Hanging Terrariums
Shirley Bovshow is showing you how to turn a cherry tomato holder, coffee pods and yogurt cups into hanging terrariums. This is a great way to recycle items you would usually throw away. Using Mod Podge, she adds fun embellishments like old jewelry, fabrics and paper to the containers to make them stand out. Use hot glue to attach the lids to the terrariums. To create holes in your containers for hanging, she suggests using a styrofoam cutter. Finally, make sure your plant is level before hanging your terrarium.
