The sun is shining and even if it does not feel warm outside yet, it’s important to practice sun safety all the time. Now is the time to get ready to protect yourself and your family from the dangerous rays of the sun as we approach the summer months ahead.
Howard Murad, M.D. wants to spread the word that “Sun exposure is one of the most preventable risk factors for all skin cancers. Sun safety is the key to prevent premature aging and skin cancers.” Murad has teamed up with the American Academy of Dermatology with the goal to shade 1 million children over the next 5 years by building shade structures in parks and playgrounds across America.
Here is Dr. Murad’s simple Sun Safety Checklist to follow and stay sun-smart year-round.
• Seek shade when outdoors.
• Use extra caution near water, snow and sand.
• Wear protective clothing and sunglasses.
• Generously apply a broad spectrum SPF Sunscreen and Re-apply every 2 hours.
• Never use tanning beds.
Here is one more thing you can add to the checklist: Try Murad’s Shade America Sun Safety Set! This 3-piece set is offered for only $68 (a $105 value). It includes Murad’s bestselling SPF 30 moisturizer and their top sun-damage and radiance-restoration treatment in an exclusive, full-size cosmetic bag featuring an original painting by Dr. Murad reproduced on fabric and printed on the inside. Murad will donate $125,000 to the American Academy of Dermatology to build shade structures across America through the sales of this set! I have been using the serum and moisturizer for the last few weeks and both are non-greasy and have a subtle fragrance of fresh squeezed oranges. I have very dry skin and I feel nourished and protected but I can tell is will work for oily skin, too. This kit is a great sun-safe gift for everyone!
