Today is Melanoma Monday, are you protecting your skin? Prevention Tips and My Favorite Sunscreen products

Melanoma Monday Prevention Tips

In an effort to increase awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancer, the American Academy of Dermatology has designated the first Monday in May as Melanoma Monday. According to the AAD, melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and the most common cancer for 25-to 29-year-olds. Most people know the importance of sunscreen and what it can mean for skincare and sun safety, but products still end up being misused, leaving many at risk for permanent skin damage and skin aging. Below is a list of five sunscreen mistakes to avoid at all costs.
1. Thinking you’re exempt from sunscreen because you have dark or olive skin.
2. Not applying sunblock often enough.
3. Neglecting to wear sunscreen while driving or working indoors.
4. Using a sunscreen that blocks only UVB rays.
5. Using a sunscreen that has expired.
To keep skin protected, La Roche-Posay Anthelios offers sunscreens which block both UVA and UVB rays. And always remember… apply and re-apply!

Winter is finally coming to an end, and after months of harsh conditions, spring is here! With warm weather just around the corner, it’s time for skin to get a fresh start! Try the very best in face cleansers for smooth and moisturized skin this spring!

La Roche-Posay’s Physiological Cleansing Gel has a unique formula with a cooling effect for a refreshing, deep clean feel. The rinse-off gel efficiently cleanses the skin without causing dryness or irritation and is safe for all skin types.

I’ve been using this Cleansing Gel for the last couple week, and have paired it with the Micellar Solution.

Micelles – micro-encapsulate dirt on skin’s surface and lift it up without rubbing, thereby maintaining skin’s physiological balance. Optimal safety on sensitive skin with Poloxamer, a cleansing ingredient so mild it is used in contact lens solutions. Effective to remove impurities while respecting skin’s natural balance.
Description
Cleanses, tones and calms skin, while respecting its physiological balance.

Physiological Micellar Solution has won the following Awards:

  • 2012 Allure Best of Beauty: Sensitive Skin
  • 2011 Allure Best of Beauty: Sensitive Skin

These two together are absolutely AMAZING! My pores are almost non-existent anymore. It cleans, and tightens, and doesn’t dry out your skin! I’m in love, and you will be to! The products are both affordable ($20 or so each), and they will last you months! I’ve been using them for a couple weeks, and I’ve barely made a dent! Love it!
