May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. As someone who has had skin cancer, I can tell you that you need to make sure you taking the appropriate steps to avoid skin cancer. I have had two instances of it by the age of 48. Yes, I had a lot of sunburns when I was little but I never could tan. I never could stay out in the sun either. It is not something for me. My number on the Fitzpatrick skin cancer scale is a I which means I am highly likely to get skin cancer because I burn, have blonde hair and blue/green eyes. To avoid skin cancer at all times one needs to wear a SPF30 all year long, that's right I said all year long and that means on the face and body. One of my skin cancers was on the tip of my nose and the other was on the upper arm. It can happen anywhere.

These sunscreens are great to use under makeup or instead of makeup in the summer. They give the face a little bit of color, which is nice and they give a lot of sunscreen protection that reflects the UVA/UVB rays. These are great ways to wear sunscreen that is reef safe, meaning it won't harm ocean reefs with its ingredients.
