May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, and there are more skin cancers than all other cancers combined. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and over 9,500 get diagnosed every single day according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). On average, one of us dies from a melanoma every hour. Think of it this way, in the time it takes to finish a Flywheel class, someone somewhere in the USA has died from this deadly form of skin cancer. Melanoma is the second most common form of cancer in females age 15-29, and the majority of skin cancer deaths are from melanoma.

PRODUCT: Skincare Kit
Sometimes the abundance of cleansers, moisturizers, serums, scrubs, lotions, potions and creams on the market can just set a girl’s head spinning when trying to decide upon a skincare regimen. That’s why I was so happy to try the Park Avenue Prescription starter kit ($70) from Sadick Dermatology Group, a three product anti-aging collection. All the guesswork has been taken away from dealing with signs of age with this lineup formulated for morning and evening use.
Start the day out with the set’s AM Protection Cream – a blend of antioxidants and amino acids that provide 24-hour hydration, broad UVA protection (SPF 20), detoxification and collagen support, and instantly improve your skin’s appearance.
The regimen contains two treatments to use in the evening. First, apply PM Reversal Serum - a cocktail of peptides, retinols and AHAs that stimulate natural collagen production, promote cellular turnover, decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture.
Follow with PM Rejuvenation Cream – a calming and relaxing cream that contains pigment and redness fighting agents that target melasma, brown spots, redness, irritation and rosacea. The cream works to fight inflammation and dark spots while hydrating and improving skin tone.
The Park Avenue Prescription starter kit is available now at Sephora and www.sephora.com. The products also are sold separately. When at Sephora, be sure to check out the QR code technology, which allows you to snap a picture of a special code with your Smart phone and immediately view a product training video created by the brand developers.
