    Skin Cancer, My Story.

    I was diagnosed with skin cancer a month ago. I've never been one to spend time in the sun, and living in the UK I rarely get the opportunity! I had an op to remove my basal cell carcinoma two weeks ago. It has left me with an 'interesting' scar on my right forearm. My ever...

    Much of my work for many years was doing field studies out in Africa's blistering heat. Sunscreens were not yet available and I did all I could to cover my arms and wear a hat. I even wore two pairs of sunglasses to protect my eyes from the glare of the paper and used green paper...

    _

    I've always been faired skinned but I only recently took interest into preventing aging and taking care of my skin rather than applying make-up. I started to apply sunscreen on a daily basis and yes, it makes a difference. My skin is so soft, and I don't even need to wear...

    I live in Vancouver - it's raining eight months

    It's A Must!

    I keep a can of Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock near my front door so that I remember to give my face a good spraying every time I leave the house. I have my dad's sensitive skin- it's pale, never tans, and burns quickly! If I don't use sunblock daily, my skin gets...
