We’re packing away our boots and sweaters and whipping out our sundresses and sandals. This, of course, means that more of our skin is exposed to the elements. 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.

Did you know that more two million people are diagnosed annually with skin cancer? Eucerin shared a few great tips with me to help protect ourselves from this preventable disease:

  • 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

Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Body and Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion contain sunscreens so it moisturizing your skin one easy step.

If you are unsure of what Eucerin skin care products to use for your skin type, head over to Eucerin’s brand new Skindicator App that recommends a product based your Skindicator quiz results.
