It’s that time of the year when we begin got spend more and more time out in the sun. If you’re like me, that means I start paying more attention to my toes and those dry patches on my skin. AND, I start thinking more about skin protection.
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month! I’m a little crazy about skin cancer screening and protecting my skin from over-exposure to the sun. On our latest episode on the podcast, we talk all about how to protect your skin from the sun, including the different kinds of sun protection products and what does that number on the sunscreen even mean? We also get the skinny on which products we should drop the big $bucks$ on versus the ones we can pick up at the drugstore. In addition, if you’re like me and you get lazy about your skin, we talk about how to create a simple skin care routine that’s truly doable for our busy lives.
