Practice Safe Sun: It’s Melanoma Awareness Month

As skincare professionals, we should all be living by these three words every single day: Practice Safe Sun. Just in case you have trouble convincing your clients to do the same, take a look at the hard, dangerous facts according to the Melanoma Research Alliance:

  • Melanoma is the deadliest of skin cancers, and the rates of diagnosis for the disease are outpacing almost all other cancers.
  • Today, Melanoma is one of the most common cancers found among young adults in the U.S.
  • One person dies of Melanoma every hour, every day.
  • Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is in most cases related to UV-induced damage. This includes tanning beds and the sun. Sunburns, especially at a young age, are linked to melanoma.

That’s why at Tuel we are asking you to join us as we celebrate National Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month in May with our featured sunscreen product: Daily Protect SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer. For every Daily Protect we sell, Tuel|Berodin will donate $1.00 to the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Care Center. Plus, every skincare purchase includes a bracelet to help spread the word and remind everyone to practice safe sun every day.

Looking for some tips to tell your clients? Break it down by reminding them while skin cancer may be one of the deadliest, it’s also one of the most preventable...just by making sunscreen a daily habit. Also, talk to them about using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of at least 30, and go beyond their face and body, and slather it on their hands, ears, and neck too. They can also cover up with protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses, and avoid those peak mid-day sun rays.
