Show Love For Your Skin Giveaway {$100 Visa Gift Card, $50 Sun Glass Hut, Eucerin Lotion}

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with more than two million people diagnosed annually. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Eucerin wants to make sure everyone is doing what they can to protect their gorgeous skin and putting the health of their skin FIRST! Do you know that skin is the body’s largest organ?  It’s vital we keep it healthy, so for Skin Cancer Awareness month Eucerin would like to share some tips to help protect your skin from potential sun damage this month.

·         Skin Cancer doesn’t discriminate, it can affect anyone. Head to toe annual skin checks can help catch melanoma early – when it’s most curable.

·         Always remember to apply sunscreen 20-30 minutes before going outside and make sure to reapply it every two hours.

·         You can decrease your UV exposure by wearing protective clothing, sunglasses and avoiding the sun between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

·         Making sure your skin’s protective barrier is strong is also another great way to keep your skin healthy and safe.

·         Don’t forget to use SPF on days when it’s cloudy because the sun’s harmful UV rays can still cause damage and increase your risk of developing melanoma

Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream Collection {Review and Giveaway}

Did you know that Carmex makes skin care products? I didn’t! When Carmex sent me some healing lotion and cream to try I was interested to see how it would compare to their lip care line. I opened one of the tubes and smelled it. The lotion smelled pretty strong with a hint of vanilla. It reminded me of the vanilla lip product I had tried a couple months ago. I put it on my hand and discovered that when I rubbed it in it wasn’t greasy and the smell wasn’t as strong. The lotion also seemed to last after I washed my hands which is a great perk since, with two kids, I would be having to put it on constantly if it washed off.
