As you know, May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
Now, the source of skin cancer, in the vast majority of cases, is the sun - or ultraviolet rays, so tanning beds contribute, too. But, as a skincare line, Yu-Be cannot ignore this opportunity to get us all really thinking about our skin. A few simple steps and products can keep your skin healthy, and you just can't understate how important healthy skin is. There are the cosmetic reasons, yes - smooth, attractive skin, younger skin without lines and wrinkles, even and soft skin that barely needs makeup and never needs to be covered up. But the health reasons are even more important. We can help avoid skin cancer by using sun block, and we can avoid skin conditions like eczema and acne by maintaining skin that is moisturized but never oily. Yu-Be's products achieve that balance by moisturizing skin, and infusing skin with glycerin and vitamin E to heal and rejuvenate - but these products never weigh skin down with oily ingredients or leave skin greasy.
Having a sun block with a high enough SPF for your skin (ask your dermatologist) and Yu-Be's products to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize in your skincare arsenal promises healthy skin for life.
Consider a few facts about skin cancer...
- Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US.
- 3.5 million cases are diagnosed in 2 million people every year.
- One in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime.
And one about skin cancer AND aging:
- 90% of the visible changes to skin due to aging are caused by the sun.
These facts are from The Skin Cancer Organization's site. You can read more about skin cancer there, like the different forms and treatments.
Arm yourself with beautiful, healthy skin! Why not? The products you need are affordable and the applications take mere minutes. Keep yourself from being that one person of five - you'll be glad you did.
