La Roche-Posay Skin Checker
I don’t write about skin care as much as I used to (or should), but last month I met with the lovely team from La Roche-Posay for Melanoma Monday — an event designed to educate men, women and children on one of the most increased Cancers in Canada and their Skin Checker campaign.
I’ve always been an indoor kid, but I can still see the nasty affects the sun has had on my skin — especially age spots and moles. And because there’s a history of skin cancer in my family, I’m becoming a little more concerned that those moles might be something more. But even though I’ve written a million articles about sun protection and skin cancer, I still put off going to have them checked by the doctor. Which is what I like about the SKin Checker project:La Roche-Posay, commended by the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA), is urging people to adopt a sort of buddy system to get folks to check their freckles and encourage and educate people to take a more active role in the early detection of skin cancer.
La Roche-Posay has also updated their Anthelios product line. It was already one of my favourite sun protection lines, but now they have made it even more minimalist, offering only high protection or very high protection, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic products tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control. In a nutshell, they work for everybody and they also come with a variety of applications and textures so you’re sure to find a formula that works for you.
