It’s Theme Day across the b5media Beauty & Style Channel, and this month is all about Skin Cancer Awareness. Not a fun thing to talk about, but one that is vitally important, for sure.
Two fabulous celebs, Kristen Bell (of Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Marcia Cross (of Desperate Housewives, duh) are two pretty ladies who have sworn to shun the sun and get their glow elsewhere (or not at all).
Ms. Bell signed on to the Glow in the Dark campaign, sponsored by Jergens.com. Jergens will donate $1 for every similar pledge made by the public toward The Skin Cancer Foundation. Jergens, of course, is quite well-known for their Natural Glow self-tanning products.
And the gorgeously porcelain Ms. Cross is embarking on her second year as the spokeswoman for the Olay and ASDS-sponsored program which offers free skin-cancer screenings during May, June and July. For more info on these screenings, which are held at participating dermatologist offices, visit skincancertakesfriends.org.
Now, I’m admittedly a sun-worshipper, my dahlings, but through the years I have begun to add more and more sun protection to my summer beauty routine. It’s quite scary how skin cancer can affect the palest of pale and the tannest of tan. It’s not choosy. So you need to be. Make one of these fabulous celebs your sun-care role model and consider taking part in one of these programs today.
Oh, and spread the word…and the sunscreen.
