Summer is here and the first thing that comes to our minds is to hit the beach or pool and get our tans on! We rarely think about the damage the sun's rays can have on our Latina skin. With so many myths out there about sun care, its important to know the truth before we head out the door without any protection. Read what some of our Neutrogena Sun Up Sun Down campaigns bloggers wrote about and don't forget to #ChooseSkinHealth.
"According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in FIVE Americans will develop skin cancer in their life. I was shocked to hear such studies especially when it can be prevented by just applying sunscreen before we leave our homes."
"Being Latina I’ve always been able to get away with staying out in the sun for hours without getting a bad sun burn. Little did I know that even though I wasn’t getting burned, the sun was still harming my skin."
"I spent the better part of my young adult life striving for that perfect tan. I would literally bake outdoors dripping my body in tanning solutions. It wasn’t until I had my babies that I truly gave caution to skin care."
"I use to think that sunscreen was only needed when going to the pool and beach. Boy was I wrong! Any time you step outside the sun will hit your skin and it is important to be protected."
