I love the month of May! Depending where you live the weathers warming up a bit, the flowers are in bloom and spring really speaks to us.
Flowers are the perfect pick me up!
Sunshineon our shoulders brightens our day!
Fruit and veggies arrive and we can enjoy the freshest ones in season.
It is also a time to remember to ADD even more sunscreen into our daily ritual. A shot glass filled is a great start. If you’re spending time outdoors or at the beach you’ll need to apply it even more.
It is SKIN Cancer Awareness month and this is a reminder don’t forget to wear sunscreen. SPF is the skin care secret for less wrinkled and to stop damaging your skin. The sun 🌞 can give you skin cancer in rain ☔️ or shine.
As a skin cancer SURVIVOR I urge you to do this! Not for me but for YOU and the health of your skin too.
My clients always ask me the secret to having younger looking skin?
Sunscreen, a good nights rest and not going to sleep with makeup on is at the top of my list answer.
This used to be ME (minus THE tattoo) sunbathing 😎 in the summers in N.Y.C. Then I moved to Florida and sunbathed a bit more too.
UNTIL I got smarter. Sun smart to be exact.
I got squamous cell carcinoma and it wasn’t very beautiful or golden. I found a little brown raised spot ON my breast not in my breast. The Dr told me it isn’t very common. But common or rare I needed it gone.
I was terrified. Thousands of dollars $$$ in Drs. visits and a special surgery called Mohs to remove it at Mayo Clinic. It was a day I decided to never sunbathe again.
Just a reminder…Our clients can never be told this enough. “PLEASE wearsunscreen.”
In the past few weeks I have seen all kinds of sunburns and skin damage from the sun. I feel for the people from children to adults. RED as a beet!
I so LOVE the sun shining and miss it on a cloudy day. BUT.
I really and truly have learned since I moved for my husband from NYC to Florida that it is dangerous living here as we live so close to those beating rays. Oh and I do enjoy a bit of time in the sun walking on the beach and anyhere else. But I respect my body too much to bake my skin and body like a dozen cookies on a oven tray!!!
So as a skin cancer melanoma survivor...Take the time to share your skin care and makeup secrets and put sunscreen at the top of the list. Also remind your clients to see the dermatologist once a year for skin checkups.
Like I’ve done…you could just save another life! Or two!
