Getting regular skin screenings is one of the best ways to catch skin cancer before it becomes serious or even deadly. And there is no excuse not to get one, even if you are a little cash stressed. Skincare company La Roche-Posay is sponsoring free skin cancer screenings in 16 US cities this summer as part of its commitment to keep our skin safe.
If you are in New York this week, check out Parasols of Protection, on Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22, from 11 am to 7 pm at Madison Square Park. You won’t be able to miss the event because La Roche-Posay has sponsored an art installation of suspended umbrellas over the park as a symbol of skin safety. Doctors from the Women’s Dermatologic Society will be on hand to provide free skin cancer screenings, and visitors will get the chance to receive free sunscreen.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen products, a UVA and UVB protection line that is recommended by many dermatologists, will be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds of these sales will benefit skin cancer research.
But New York is not the only locale for free screenings. La Roche-Posay will be sponsoring skin checks at Ulta stores in California, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Check with your local Ulta store for more information, or visit the La Roche-Posay Facebook page for upcoming Save Our Skin events in your area.
