( – A New York Post reported that, on Tuesday, President Joe Biden had been spotted as he finished his seven-day St. Croix vacation in the U.S. Virgin Islands with a sunburn.

The report pointed out that the President, 81, appeared to be burned from his forehead all the way to his neck, which his partially unbuttoned shirt left exposed. This sunburn comes almost a year after the President had to remove a cancerous lesion from his chest. In November 2021, he also had a precancerous lesion excised from his colon.

Scientific research has shown that there is an increased risk of developing skin cancer caused by tanning. In the United States, over 1 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year which are seen as connected to sun exposure.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also noted that long-term UV exposure could also cause premature aging. The agency specifically notes that it could take years for the damage to be visible. As the FDA points out, avoiding UV exposure is the first step to maintaining healthy skin.

The Bidens, along with their granddaughter Natalie, had vacationed in the home of Bill and Connie Neville for a week. The property is usually available as a VRBO rental and includes an offshore island, in-ground pool, and great views of the Caribbean Sea.

The House GOP slammed Biden for taking a vacation while the crisis at the southern border has worsened. In his New Year’s resolution, Biden chose to not make any mention of the border crisis, arguing instead that he would be coming back next year.
