    Sunscreen

    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...

    I live in Vancouver - it's raining eight months

    of the year. But I slap some 45 on my face first thing after showering. Prevention through protection is the only scientifically proven form of "anti-aging."

    Why Does Everything Work Better Than Lotion?

    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...

    That Bad Old Sun! ! !

    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...
