An esthetician explores skincare issues and concerns

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month May 4, 2010

So I’ve already written a lot in this blog about proper and consistent sun protection from head to toe, staying away from tanning bed (or cancer beds), and scary increase in skin cancer rates in this country.  But since May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month I thought it important to raise all those issues yet again.

There are lots and lots of great sunscreens on the market.  But if you are not sure what to buy consider purchasing Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit.  For only $25 you can try 11 different products, and all the proceeds go to The Skin Cancer Foundation.


And lastly, go see a dermatologist for a skin exam!  One appointment could save your life.

    Good to see this post spreading the good word on sunscreens! I’m always on the lookout for sunscreens that are kind to sensitive skin, so that starter pack sounds like an ideal way to try a few different brands.
