Market Street Dermatology wishes everyone a happy weekend! The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention has declared the Friday before Memorial Day as "Don't Fry Day". Enjoy the outdoors, but don't forget to protect your skin.
Be kind to your skin: It's Melanoma Monday!
Monday May 1st is "Melanoma Monday," a day devoted to melanoma awareness. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer int he US, and melanoma is the deadliest form. It can affect anyone, including young children. Though most often diagnosed in men over the age of 50, it's the leading cause of cancer death in young women aged 25-30.
It's common to find melanoma on the back, shoulders, and the back of legs- all places that can be hard to see yourself. The good news is that melanoma can be highly curable if caught in early stages, so if you're concerned, be sure to make an appointment sooner rather than later.
To help raise awareness, Market Street is offering free melanoma checks Monday, May 1st. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended to ensure you're seen promptly.
If you're planning on enjoying the summer sun, please remember these important tips to reduce your risk of melanoma:
Make sunscreen a daily habit.
Protect your body with sun-protective clothing, hat, and sunglasses.
Avoid peak rays. Seek shade during the mid-day sun.
Stay out of tanning beds. Indoor tanning can increase risk of melanoma up to 75%.
Protect children. Just one bad sunburn in childhood doubles a child's chances of developing melanoma later in life.
Epionce Daily Shield Lotion will be featured the month of April at Market Street Dermatology for 20% off. This tinted, UV protected lotion is formulated with rich antioxidant and anti-inflamitory properties including zinc oxide, sunflower, and saffron oil. With its sheer, natural looking coverage, this product will have your skin looking and feeling radiantly healthy.
Dry, cracked, or peeling lips? Skin Ceuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair can help. This treatment helps retain water to replenish lip tissue, leaving them hydrated and smooth. Market Street Dermatology will be offering 20% off now until Valentines day.
Winter air can be very dry and without proper moisture, your skin can become itchy, flaky or crack. The American Academy of Dermatology has some suggestions to help. If you do not find relief from this list, contact your dermatologist for further evaluation.
The first day of winter is officially here! With the extreme cold temperatures to come, it is important to protect your skin and stay warm. Here are some helpful tips to prevent frostbite.
Market Street Dermatology is proud to be an annual sponsor for the Miles for Melanoma 5k walk/run!
