May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and with the warm weather and sunny days approaching (or our year-round glorious sunshine), we need to be mindful about sun protection and skin cancer prevention.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States with melanoma being the deadliest. On average, one American dies every hour from melanoma and one in 50 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime. Fortunately, skin cancer is the most preventable form of cancer! As ultraviolet (UV) rays cause skin cancer, be sure to follow these prevention guidelines:
One of my top selling sunscreens is Reflect (pictured). Reflect is a natural SPF 30 sunscreen containing non-irritating titanium dioxide which protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. Reflect also infuses the skin with antioxidants and peptides which protect the cells from DNA damage and the stimulation of melanin (melanin is the pigment that darkens the skin). Not only does this sunscreen protect you from the damaging rays, its spray-on convenience makes it perfect to throw in your bag for easy reapplication throughout the day!
In my facial treatments, I will always take a deeper look at your skin under the magnifying lamp, whether you need extractions or not. It's extremely important for an Esthetician to look and feel for suspicious spots. I have referred dozens of clients to dermatologists if I see a questionable growth or mole and have had much success with early detection. Your skin is your largest organ which protects your immunity so it's vital to take these precautionary steps to prevent skin cancer!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Use up any leftover avocados today and treat your skin to a facial mask! Knowing myself, leftover avocados just don't exist (I just love their fatty goodness!) but this mask is fantastic for a little rejuvenation even if you have to run to the store.
Avocados contain more than 20 vital nutrients, including potent Vitamin A and C, which regenerate cells for more youthful skin. Avocados with their lush fatty oils will also moisturize, heal, and allow your skin to replenish its natural moisture barrier!
Just mash the fruit with a tablespoon of raw honey into a paste and spread evenly onto the skin. Leave on for 10-20 minutes and gently wipe away. Apply your moisturize and that's it! Use this mask when you're feeling dull and flakey and you'll feel the difference instantly! Nothing better to treat yourself than an at-home facial mask with real ingredients!

Thinking it's time to add an age-defying treatment into your skincare regimen? Retinol, a Vitamin A derivative, is the anti-age powerhouse, however, it is traditionally known to cause irritation and unwanted side effects like redness and inflammation. Define, my favorite starter retinol treatment, is created with AGP Complex, a retinol alternative unique to CosMedix. This trans-retinol delivers the skin all of the incredible benefits of retinol including cell growth and renewal, reduction of acne and scarring, and the gentle remodeling of your skin's layers for more youthful skin without those adverse effects! The soothing and hydrating benefits of chamomile and aloe vera keep the skin supple and healed, while the addition of grapefruit and peach oils give Define a bit more yumminess, also! Define is perfect for all skin types and conditions. This is the best CosMedix retinol to begin treatment, followed by stronger creams when you're ready to boost your anti-aging regimen even further!
