all the fair ladies & gents!

Most of you know that I'm a stickler when it comes to skin protection from the sun. My father and his mother, my grandmother, both have had various forms of skin cancer through the years. Knowing this you'd think I would have always taken care of my skin. The simple embarrassing truth is that I have not. No need to beat yourself up over the past right? So the good news is that I now take super duper care of my skin, with daily SPF and routine {& mandated} dermatologist visits every 6-months.

When I look around I am astonished at the lack of knowledge when it comes to skin cancer, especially among the youth. So I'm making it my business to do my part to help educate & raise awareness when it comes to this disease. Because the truth is, 1 in 5 of us Americans will have some form of skin cancer in our lifetime. Bet you didn't know that did you? If you'd like to read up, click here. And stay tuned for details about how you can join me in my efforts to raise awareness about skin cancer...
