love it as much as you do. luckily i have a super secret weapon to help with that and she's stepping in to save the day for all of us. meet dr. whitney bowe, celebrity dermatologist. >> i love being outdoors, but i'm a dermatologist, a mom. so you have to be smart in the sun. >> reporter: shining a light on summer skin misconceptions. first of all, what are the biggest mistakes you see people making when they head outside in the middle of the summer? >> first of all, people don't reapply their sunscreen. you put it on in the morning, you have to reapply every two hours if your skin is dry, more frequently if you're swimming, getting wet, sweating. >> reporter: next up, don't be led astray by the spray. >> the only way that the sprays work is if you first spray it, then you have to rub it in. because when you just spray the skin, you end up missing large parts of the body. >> reporter: number three, your
sunscreen can go bad if it's not scored correctly. >> throw it in the bag, throw it on your towel, you leave it in the car. and those sunscreen ingredients are baking in that heat. and they're breaking down. >> reporter: another summer sun superstition? >> a major myth is that if you have skin of color, if you have a dark complexion, you don't need to use sunscreen or sun protection. that is just not true. >> reporter: luckily dr. bowe has options for everyone's summer skin. ideas to keep in mind in addition to the typical sunscreen routine. clothing with a upf or ultraviolet protection factor. >> there's fabrics, sun-protective fabrics. look for upf 50-plus. that means that fabric has been tested in the laboratory setting to actually block out 98% of uva and uvv rays. anywhere that your skin is covered by the fabric, you don't have to apply sunscreen. >> reporter: some of that clothing is stylish. who wasn't swap the sunscreen for this chic coverup? next from outerwear to protection from the inside out.
>> studies show that nicotinemide, a form of b-3, can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. this is the formulation i recommend, helio care advanced, order online. take this in the morning. it's not instead of sunscreen. but if you're applying sunscreen and you take this on top of it, it can dramatically reduce your risk of getting all that damage from the sun. >> reporter: but let's just say you forget to take your helio care or you didn't reapply your sunscreen. you fall asleep in the sun. one too many margaritas. it's happened. never to me. >> no, of course not. >> never to me. t no way. of a burn. what are our options if you don't have aloe on hand? dr. bowe's surprising solution? >> milk. we all have milk in our fridge. i have cold milk. mix it with ice cubes. put it in a bin.
take a wash cloth and just get that nice and covered with milk. you wring it out. and then you drape the milk onto -- it's very cooling. it basically draws out the heat from the burn. it also leaves a little film of healthy fats and proteins that really help to promote and speed the wound-healing process for a sunburn. it's actually very healthy. >> have a great summer! i did all the tricks at the end there. another option to treat sunburn is medical-grade honey. add a thin layer over the burn. it will promote a moisture-balanced environment that helps the burn heal faster. >> whole milk will save your life every time. even though that melanin be popping, put on your sun block. you still need it. >> that was your backyard, that was beautiful. >> that was not my backyard, that was dr. b.'s backyard and i'm very grateful for the invite to that poolal iismmer.

>> good night, andy. >> oh, my childhood nightmares are coming back fast. "child's play" is scoring 67% on rotten tomatoes but critics pointing out the high-tech twist is no match for the old school chucky. i would agree. one critic writes, the director and writer reduced chucky to a malevolent -- automation, his dialogue limited to parodying back someone else's catch praises. being an a.i. with faulty circuitry, chucky 2.0 doesn't have the soul that made the original chucky such an unnervingly human abomination. >> i get what they're saying. >> this high-tech twist, again we see an example when it just doesn't match with the old school. >> yeah. no, that makes sense. next to a highly anticipated sequel from our parent company, disney.

this morning on "world news now," breaking news. a military strike on iran stopped as it was being carried out. >> president trump had approved attacks on iranian targets, then reversed his decision. new details are just coming in. wicked weather. hail bigger than the size of baseballs are falling from the sky, and more storms are brewing today. we're tracking the severe weather forecast. plus it's summer summer summertime. summer begins in just a few hours. but there are dangers that come with the season. at the beach, at the pool, and even toys this time of the year. how to keep your family safe. and we're getting in summer shape. >> yeah, look at that. >> expert trainers are here in the studio with their best tips, including how to get your pump on. just before you get your suit on. because you gotta look good for the gram. it's friday, june 21st, the

>> sources tell abc news president trump ordered a military strike on iran, then called it off after a plan was already under way. publicly the president warned that the country will not stand for the shoot-down of the drone, but he also downplayed the attack, suggesting it may have been unintentional. iran released this video purportedly showing the moment its missile struck the drone, saying it took place in iranian air space. a claim the u.s. disputes. abc's martha raddatz has the details. >> reporter: iran claims they shot down that drone because it wandered into iranian territorial air space. but the pentagon and the white house have been very clear, they say that is categorically false. that the drone was in international air space when it was shot down. iran showed some pictures they say was their surface-to-air missile hitting that drone. that video has not been verified but it is a huge fireball seen on the screen.
president trump had an early warning for iran saying that they made a very big mistake. then he took a very strange twist saying, i find it hard to believe it was intentional, saying, if you want to know the truth, i think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid that did it, miscalculation has always been a fear during this incredibly tense time with iran. but iranian officials themselves made it very clear this wasn't some rogue iranian officer accidentally firing a missile, iran shot that drone down on purpose. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> our thanks to martha right there. she's been all over this and she'll have much more later on on "good morning america." iran claims the drone was shot down after ignoring repeated radio warnings not to enter its air space. >> as the president considers his next move, he huddled at the white house with senior officials and top lawmakers from both parties. some are calling on him to deescalate the situation. others are pushing for a military strike. abc's mary bruce has more.
>> reporter: president trump summoning congressional leaders to the situation room for an emergency briefing on iran. house speaker nancy pe think th wants to go to war. there's no appetite for going to war in our country. >> reporter: many republicans are also urging caution. >> continue doing what we're doing. military restraint. maximum pressure otherwise. >> reporter: but some of trump's top allies are encouraging the president to do more. senator lindsey graham says iran needs to get ready for some, quote, severe pain. >> all i can tell you, if you're not willing to stand up to aggression, you're going to get hurt. here's what i believe about donald trump. he's a dealmaker. he's trying to avoid conflict. but this is truly a defining moment for him. >> reporter: but the president says he's not being pressured into a conflict by his own team. >> are there members of your administration trying to push you into conflict? >> not at all, not at all. in many cases it's the opposite. i said i want to get out of
these endless wars. i campaigned on that. >> reporter: trump also campaigned on ending the iran nuclear deal, which he did last year. speaker pelosi says that's part of the problem. >> when we walked away from that, we lost some credibility with our allies. >> reporter: former vice president joe biden calls trump's iran strategy a self-inflicted disaster. now, coming out of that meeting, republican leader mitch mcconnell told reporters that the white house is engaged in measured responses. while democratic leader chuck schumer says he's worried that the president and his administration may, quote, bumble into a war. mary bruce, abc news, the white house. >> our thanks to mary there at the white house. administration lawyers blocked former white house communications director hope hicks from answering questions more than 150 times as she testified on capitol hill this week. >> that's according to the newly released transcript from the house judiciary committee, which is looking into possible obstruction by president trump. the lawyers claim hicks was immune from discussing her time working at the white house, but hicks told lawmakers she would
not accept dirt on a political opponent from a foreign government, contrary to trump's answer to our own george stephanopoulos. it's the first day of summer but for millions of americans the season kicks off with wind, rain, and hail. the national weather service in little rock offers proof. actual baseball-sized hail hit western arkansas. that ties a record for the largest hail ever there. the radar shows some rain lingering in the northeast, but conditions are expected to clear later today. also later today, severe storms are likely from the dakotas to the ohio valley and into the mississippi valley. some test trouble in a school district about 100 miles from charlotte, north carolina, has education officials apologizing. they say more than 400 high school juniors never got their a.c.t. scores back because their tests were never submitted. human error is being blamed. arrangements are being made for those kids to retake the tests free of charge. now to the nba draft. it seems the whole world, we knew former duke star zion williamson would be the number one pick the second he hit
campus last fall. >> last night it became a reality. the new orleans pelicans took williamson first overall, making the 18-year-old the face of the franchise. at number two former murray state star ja morant won't have to move far. he's now a memphis grizzly. with the number three pick the new york knicks took one of williamson's duke teammates, r.j. barrett. >> so exciting. again, i mean, so i was watching the video. i did not stay up to watch the draft. but seeing when they were talking to zion williamson right after, and he gets so emotional and was just thanking his mom and saying how much she sacrificed for him, it was a really sweet moment. his mom was there saying, we knew this was going to happen, we knew it was coming, but all that anticipation. seeing his hard work pay off. you see right there how excited he was. >> this is the moment so many of those athletes, their families, have been waiting for. and it came true last night for so many of them.
all that hard work, as you mentioned, just really paid off. and mom right there by his side. >> so much excitement ahead of them. for zion williamson, he seems like such a good guy. >> right. >> so we'll be cheering him all the way. >> new orleans, he can get muffuletta in new orleans. then beignets. go to that famous beignet place. cafe du monde. that's a good one. we're going to see zion with all that powder all over his face from the beignets. >> maybe. when in new orleans. brace yourself, barry mitchell. the barry mitchell. he's here for our live summer kickoff. >> polka! first, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. >> talk about a downer. later, if you're not exactly in tip top swimsuit shape, don't worry. we're checking in with a couple of experts who will show us how to get that last-minute burn. of experts who will show us how to get that last-minute burn. experts who will show us how

secretary of state mike pompeo and national security adviser john bolton. "the new york times" is reporting planes were in the air and ships were in position when they were told to stand down. >> tensions escalated when iran shot down a u.s. drone thursday morning claiming it had entered its air space and released this video purportedly showing the shoot-down. abc's martha raddatz has more. >> reporter: iran claims this is its surface-to-air missile streaking towards the u.s. drone at 7:30 p.m. eastern time, exploding on impact, a huge fireball filling the screen, the video is not verified. the u.s. military also releasing its own video of the stricken aircraft plummeting into the water. shortly after, iranian tv announces the shoot-down, claiming it was in iranian air space. its revolutionary guard corps stating, an enemy that violates our borders will not return and will be destroyed. the global hawk, one of america's most sophisticated
unmanned surveillance aircraft, its wing span as broad as a 737, took off from an air base in the uae hours earlier, monitoring the gulf of oman where recent attacks were carried out on oil tankers and over the strait of hormuz, that vital oil shipping waterway in international air space, says the u.s. when the drone was hit, the u.s. navy searching its partner through rough seas to the debris field to recover what they could of the classified aircraft. at 10:15 a.m., after president trump is briefed, he tweets this stern warning. iran made a very big mistake. just over an hour later, iran's foreign minister firing back on twitter, we don't seek war but we'll zealously defend our skies, land, and waters. at 12:15, the u.s. military weighs in, pinpointing where the drone was hit, some 21 miles from the iranian coast, well
away from the 12-mile territorial limit, in sharp contrast to the iranian claim the drone went down over its territorial waters. >> this was an unprovoked attack on a u.s. surveillance asset that had not violated iranian air space at any time during its mission. iranian reports that this aircraft was shot down over iran are categorically false. >> reporter: at 12:40, from the oval office, president trump with further warnings. >> they made a very bad mistake. >> reporter: but then a strange twist. the president seeming to question whether iran intended to shoot down the drone and even the significance of the attack. >> i would imagine it was a general or somebody that made a mistake in shooting that drone down. i find it hard to believe it was intentional, if you want to know the truth. i think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid that did it. >> reporter: miscalculation has always been a fear during this incredibly tense time with iran.
but iranian officials themselves have made it very clear, this wasn't some rogue iranian officer accidentally firing a missile. iran shot that drone down on purpose. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> our thanks to martha. president trump held an emergency meeting in the situation room with his top national security advisers and congressional leaders. >> the president insisted he's not being pressured into a conflict by his aides. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said the white house is engaged in measured responses, but democrats criticize the president for withdrawing from the iran nuclear deal and said they're deeply concerned. >> i don't think the president wants to go to war. there's no appetite for going to war in our country. >> all i can tell you, if you're not willing to stand up to aggression, you're going to get hurt. here's what i believe about donald trump. he's a dealmaker. he's trying to avoid conflict. but this is truly a defining moment for him. >> gop senator lindsey graham there also said if the iranians are itching for a fight, they're
going to get one. now to the campaign trail where former vice president joe biden is looking to make peace with fellow democratic presidential candidate cory booker. >> biden called senator booker after they clashed over biden's remarks about working with segregationist senators. biden had pushed back when booker said he should apologize. booker told msnbc overnight they had a constructive phone call and felt biden understood his position better. biden also met last night with members of the congressional black caucus, a meeting scheduled before the controversy erupted. some of the members say they're not bothered by his comments. philadelphia's police commissioner says 72 officers are now off the streets after a watchdog group claimed they posted racist comments on social media. the commissioner says several dozen will be disciplined and some may be fired, moves the police union calls premature. the group known as the plainview project says it has also identified racist social media postings b claim are police officers in seven other u.s. cities. navy prosecutors are not dropping murder charges against
a s.e.a.l. commander despite a stunning twist in his trial. special operations chief edward gallagher is being tried for the death of a captured isis fighter in iraq. on the stand yesterday navy s.e.a.l. corey scott testified for the prosecution and said he saw gallagher stab the isis member in the neck, then scott claimed he killed the victim by cutting off his airway. prosecutors accuse scott of lying because he's been granted immunity. gallagher is also facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly shooting at civilians. police in charlotte are asking for the public's help to find these two bank robbers. surveillance video shows them inside a wells fargo branch two weeks ago. one of the suspects was pointing two pistols at bank workers while the second collected money. police haven't said how much they got away with or if anyone was hurt during that robbery. newly released surveillance video shows a man trying to rush through a security checkpoint at sky harbor airport in phoenix, punching and kicking tsa officers as they tried to subdue him. phoenix police on duty at the airport arrested the man who police say gave no reason for his actions.

ea hawai n back in our summemm f matter wt time of the year it is. >> hawaii, i caught that. but the time of year, today, is summertime. with today's official start of summer we're checking out fun in the sun getaway ideas that will warm your toes without overheating your credit cards. june marks peak travel season. but your best bet is booking for july and august. as those months tend to offer the best deals. so let's start with where to go. because of course it's all about location, location, location. consider places that are off-peak during summer months like mexico and parts of the caribbean. and destinations where the american dollar is worth more than local currency so your money goes further. as far as getting there, aaa says gas prices are expected to be lower this summer than last year, driving more than half of americans to hit the open roads for a getaway. if you're looking to save time there's plenty to get a sweet deal on flights. before you start booking, enable
private browsing when searching flights online. travel sites can track visits and hike fares based on your search. and make sure you search city, not airport. for instance, flying to new york city, you can choose from jfk, laguardia, or newark. >> traveling to a place like new york, boston, san francisco, all have alternative airports. and those can really save you money. >> reporter: and consider nearby cities, like flying into orlando and driving to tampa or vice versa, depending on price. buying a one-way flight from one airline and flying back on another carrier can lower costs. the days you choose to travel can make a big difference in how much you save. >> it's not the day that you actually do the search, it's the day that you travel. it's the tuesday departure and the saturday return. that's what matters. >> reporter: also factor in how much you'll pay to stay. experts suggest booking hotel rooms two to three weeks in advance, but alternatives like airbnb and homeaway can save money. while booking weeks or months
ahead is suggested, don't be afraid to look last minute. trust me, my family and i scored a deal to grand cayman less than a week before traveling in january. for aruba we planned ahead and got a steal three weeks in advance. and we booked flights to brazil using credit card points less than a month before takeoff. with the dollar worth nearly four brazilian reals, it made for a thrifty trip. one thing i learned on that brazilian trip is when you're traveling, try to pack only a carry-on. that way you don't need the extra time to check and collect bags and you're flexible if you miss a flight or you need to reschedule. also, if you're a parent of kids, exhaust them, wear them out before getting on the flight. run them around the airport, whatever you have to do. >> it was smart to have you do this summer travel story because you travel a lot out of the country. >> we try to. >> and an excuse for you to show pictures of yourself. >> that's exactly it, uh-huh. >> just go to the gram for that. why do you have to show them on the air there? >> it's my instagram feed right
