Skin Cancer Takes Friends

By Christina

Olay and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery have joined efforts this month, in honor of Skin Cancer Awareness month, and they are inviting you and a friend to get a free skin cancer screening.

Their premise is that if you have a friend there with you to hold each others hand and be brave together, you will get a screening done, whereas if left to your own devices, you might not do this important task. And did I mention it was FREE? There are 3000 dermatologists participating across the country, you can find one near you right here. I hope you will take advantage of this, and remember to just look and be aware of the skin you’re in - you might notice something wrong WAY before it becomes a huge problem.

If you haven’t read it before, here is my skin cancer story. I was 36 when I got it - this is not a problem just for older folks. Pay attention, wear that sunscreen, and embrace self tanner!
