MIAMI, FL – JUNE 15: Amy Rey has a mark on her skin after a biopsy was performed on a lesion to check for cancer due to sun exposure on June 15, 2011 in Miami, Florida. The federal Food and Drug Administration announced that sunscreen manufacturers are to change the labels on their products to prohibit the use of certain marketing terms. The new rules are meant to help clear up confusion about the meaning of “sun protection factor,” or SPF, and other terms like “waterproof.” (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
