Skin cancer is America's most common cancer with over 5 million cases every year. It is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer with the majority of cases being directly related to UV radiation exposure. More people are diagnosed with skin cancer in the United States than any other form of cancer.

“Part of the reason why I wanted to develop a sunless tanning foam was because I’ve had pre-cancerous cells and moles on my body. Skin cancer also runs in my family with my mom, dad, sister, and grandparents all having skin cancer. It was important for me to develop a sunless tanning foam that was organic and vegan. Whenever I was in college I lived in tanning beds and I had no idea that I was damaging my skin and increasing my chances of getting skin cancer. Facealauteur Luxury Tan is such a safe alternative to getting out in the sun.”

Decrease your Risk for Skin Cancer

Skipping the tanning bed also means you decrease your risk of skin cancer by avoiding unnecessary exposure to UV radiation.

Sunless is Safer

No UV radiation from the sun means less chance of premature aging, wrinkles, or sunspots!

 

    Ways to Protect your Skin from the Sun:

    Use Sunscreen

    Always wear sunscreen when you are outside in the sunlight. Apply it on your skin everyday and reapply frequently throughout the day.

    Avoid the Sun Specifically from 10 AM - 3 PM

    The sun’s ultraviolet rays are strongest during this time period. It is best to avoid direct sunlight for long periods of time.

    Wear a Hat

    Wearing a hat provides instant shade which increases your total sun protection! Wide brimmed hats are the best option.

    UV Sunglasses

    Sunglasses can help block the sun’s UV rays from damaging your eyes. Not all sunglasses block UV rays, so make sure you check!

    Seek Shade

    Seeking shade can reduce your UV exposure greatly, but it shouldn’t be your sole protection method because rays can bounce around.

    Sunless Tanning

    Sunbathing and tanning beds can lead to wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer. Facealauteur Luxury Tan is the best way to get that golden glow!
