Choosing Healthy Skin: Neutrogena

Health
One thing I have always used almost everyday since I was 17 is Neutrogena.  Since 17 years old! Oh the good ol’ days! I remember coming back home from my Volleyball practices and going straight home to wash my face. My mom always had my little pump in the bathroom therefore it has been a part of how my face looks for the past 13 years. Now, I’m 30. I come home from work and the first thing I do is wash my place. It is just a part of who I am. I don’t think I would change that little routine even if I wanted to. It’s been practice for 13 years after all.
This summer, I’m headed to Hawaii.  Hawaii is a beautiful place, where beauty and Jes just make sense.  AND Guess what …  You got it! I’m taking my Neutrogena. So Why is Neutrogena a Must in my packing list? 
“Quick Facts
–        People who tan indoors just four times a year increase their risk of developing melanoma by 11 percent.
–        The incidence of melanoma among Latinos has increased at an annual rate of 2.9% in the past 15 years, which is about the same amount as the annual increase among Caucasians.
–        Compared to Caucasian women, fewer Hispanic women always/often wear sunscreen or believe it is important to wear sunscreen daily. “Darker-skinned individuals perceive themselves as having low or no risk for melanoma”, states Dr. Rendón.”
Yes… I already had a scare of cancer earlier this month. So, I defiantly do not want to risk having melanoma. Melanoma is defiantly not the business. But I DO want to go outside, enjoy the beach, gather some Rays and allow the Vitamin D in my Body to increase with out getting future repercussions (Melanoma).  Hence, I care for my face and I use Neutrogena.
Did you also know that in 2009, Neutrogena launched a Choose Skin Health Campaign?  YES! Another amazing reason why I use them. Their mission, as mine has been since I was young, is to educate and empower the public to follow healthy and safe skin behaviors to help against sun damage. Would you like to have a free screening? If so, visit www.chooseskinhealth.com.  This is “The initiative was made possible through a partnership between Neutrogena® and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), in their commitment with educating the community on sun-related issues.”
Enjoy your beautiful Face.  I enjoy mine. 
2011 Summer Trip to Hawaii! And yes, I had my Neutrogena sunblock on!
