I can’t believe it’s already May – and that means that the sun and warm weather are right around the corner. Today marks Melanoma Monday, a day dedicated to raise awareness of this potentially deadly disease. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and it’s reported that one person dies from melanoma every hour. It’s SO important to understand that awareness can help spread the word about the importance of sun protection.
La Roche-Posay, global leader in beauty and UV protection, has officially launched a new campaign to help educate Canadians on the importance of being a #SkinChecker. Asides from the adorable video above, the fact remains that we need to be mindful of our bodies – being healthy means being informed. “In addition, the brand is known for its highly efficacious and advanced formulas, revolutionary textures and added skincare benefits. No matter your skin tone or age, it’s absolutely necessary to protect your skin from the sun.”
Not to mention that Julio reminds me daily that the sun will age me so it’s important to be mindful that the one desirable bronzed skin I sought after in my youth might not always be the best option for my skin health. Here are just a few of the options available to help protect my skin & my health.
ANTHELIOS XL MELT-IN CREAM SPF 60 – FAST ABSORBING, VELVET FINISH. FRAGRANCE-FREE.
WATER RESISTANT. Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
ANTHELIOS MINERAL TINTED ULTRA-FLUID LOTION SPF 50 – 100% MINERAL SUNSCREEN + UNIVERSAL SHADE FOR AN INSTANT NATURAL GLOW. Broad spectrum UVA/UVB high protection.
Quick absorbing. Natural glow. Fragance-free. Paraben-free. Non-comedogenic. Water-resistant.
OMG I’m a sucker for tinted moisturizer to help keep me looking my best – hands down the top of my shopping list from the new products by La Roche-Posay.
