“Thank you ALL for the love. I feel it!” he writes on his Instagram stories. “And to the media for getting this very important message out. PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR SUNSCREEN WITH A HIGH LEVEL OF SPF (NO MATTER THE SEASON). Love, HJ.”

“Please wear sunscreen. No matter how much you want a tan, trust me, trust me, trust me, please wear sunscreen. It’s just not worth it” he says in the clip.

According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and most can be treated when caught early.
