Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin Cancer Awareness Month Dr. Kjar & Candessa

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know? With 5.4 million cases and more than 3.3 million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and highly treatable when detected early. These are the most recent statistics from The Skin Cancer Foundation.
 
Jane Iredale has seven SPF products approved by The Skin Cancer Foundation. Here are some tips and tricks:
PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, SPF 20 or SPF 15: For a soft natural matte bronzing powder with an SPF, choose a deeper shade of PurePressed Base. You will achieve a natural sun-kissed complexion, without the harmful effects of the sun.
Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder, SPF 20: By adding a mist of POMMIST Hydration Spray, you will provide a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free radical production caused by sun exposure.
Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream, SPF 25 or SPF 17: Achieve paparazzi ready complexion, for any indoor or outdoor event with our new Blending/Contouring Brush for a velvety finish. Extremely water-resistant, making this the perfect wedding foundation.
Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 15: For complexion, so smooth it glows, mix Dream Tint and a dime size amount of Golden Shimmer, apply with Blending Brush for a sophisticated radiant effect.
* Are you beach ready? Not unless Powder-Me SPF is in your tote bag! Protect your skin from the harmful sun rays, and enjoy your swim knowing it is water resistant up to 40 minutes *
Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen, SPF 30: Make the application of your sunscreen fun and more glamorous. Add some 24-Karat Gold Dust into the powder to achieve an all-over glistening effect or mix with Tantasia for an instant bronzing to your skin.
Your moisturizer or body lotion has no SPF? Create it by adding a little Powder-Me SPF into your moisturizer or body lotion. Your skin will appear smoother.
Forgot to apply sunscreen, and now you are sunburned? Apply Powder-Me SPF to help calm and soothe the skin.
HandDrink Hand Cream, SPF 15: It is the perfect companion for your handbag, especially when getting your manicure. Let the nail technician perform the hand massage with only the best.
Looking to show off those fabulous sandals or stilettos? Let HandDrink do more than just hands; it is also great for your feet. Next time you are due for a pedicure, have your nail technician massage the cream with a little 24-Karat Gold Dust. The result is an elegant visual effect to your legs and feet.
Lip Drink Lip Balm, SPF 15: Did you know? Lips have no oil-producing glands, which leaves them unprotected against the elements, causing dryness and aging effects.
In love with a particular shade of eyeshadow or blush, and wish, you could find it in a PureMoist Lipstick? Let LipDrink transform any eyeshadow or blush into a long-lasting SPF lip shade. Apply LipDrink in Sheer and lightly tap the color of your choice on top, seal it with a touch of lipgloss. Our personal favorite is Violet Eyes as a lip shade topped with Kir Royale PureGloss Lip Gloss, for a sparkling effect.
PureMoist Lipstick: Did you know? The average woman spends $15,000 on makeup in her lifetime- and of that amount, $1,780 goes toward lipstick. From lipsource.com, women will use up to 9 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime.
When choosing the perfect shade for spring, base it on your natural lip color, not your skin tone. 

  • Pale lips look great in cherry, red or coral. Give Gwen a try!
  • For naturally reddish lips, try a hot pink or vivid orange, like Renee.
  • For dark lips, you can have a lot of fun with deep vampy shade like Cindy or Margi. 

You can make your lipstick last longer if you blot with a tissue and reapply the lipstick again. A second coat will add shine and coverage.
Our aesthetician’s are always happy to do a complimentary color match for you to find a foundation, lipstick or gloss that you will want to wear all summer long! Stop in to try something new, or to pick up more of your summer makeup favorites!
