Skin Cancer Statistics

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation ....

  • The diagnosis and treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancers in the U.S. increased by 77 percent between 1994 and 2014.6
  • About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer. An estimated 3.6 million cases of BCC are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of skin cancer. An estimated 1.8 million cases of SCC are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.

Take protecting your skin from the sun seriously.

Anytime you head to the pool (or time spent in the sun) make it a practice to apply a tinted face moisturizer with an SPF.  You'll accomplish three purposes: 

1.  Hydrate and Moisturize

2.  Provide tinted coverage

3.  Protect from the sun

But did you know that some sunscreen ingredients can actually cause harm, like Retinol A, and unfortunately you'll find this chemical in most face sunscreens.  

So skip the toxins and choose safer face products with Beautycounter, a company that is committed to using safer ingredients through third party testing, banning over 1400 harmful chemicals and using ingredients that really work.

Did you know that "one and done" doesn't work when it comes to protecting your skin from UV damage.  

The two most important sunscreen application tips are to apply liberally and to apply often.  Which is why I like this sunscreen stick by Beautycounter.  

Your hands stay nice and clean while you can make a quick swipe of your nose, cheeks, chin and forehead.  The best part? You get skin protection without the harmful ingredients.

Face Moisturizer for Dry Skin

Because I spend a lot of time outdoors by the pool and working in the yard, I have to work at keeping my dry skin moisturized.  I've tried several simple organic oils like coconut oil and jojoba oil but they were too greasy for me and didn't seem to really penetrate my skin. My skin experienced a real game changer when I started using the Countermarch moisturizers.

Face Sun Protection Around Your Eyes

Wrap around sunglasses aren't just for protecting your vision, they also protect the delicate skin around your eyes helping to prevent wrinkles and skin dryness.

Did you know that one of the most common places to get skin cancer is your eyelids?

So instead of taking off your sunglasses to put on your reading glasses get a pair of Peepers that will allow your magnify text so you can read your books, magazines or phone text without having to take off your sunglasses.

Face Sun Protection with Shade

An added strategy for protecting your face from the sun is to use some kind of patio umbrella for shade whether it's a clamp on umbrella or a free standing market umbrella

Face Sun Protection with Hats and Visors

Use a triple strategy to protect your face from the sun with sunscreen, shade and a wide brimmed hat. 

This hat with sun protection has a UPF of 50+ and a removable neck flap.   It's lightweight and dries quickly if you want to wear it in the pool.

Moisturize with Mists

Moisturize your face while you are at the pool with a refreshing rosewater face mist.  Skin dries out quickly from pool chlorine water, reflective sun, and wind. So give your skin some help.

It's never too early or too late to protect your face from the sun and UV damage.  Keep your face looking it's best with triple UV protection strategy and follow up moisturizers.
