The month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. During this time, we want to speak up about the dangers of skin cancer, share the facts, and help transform people’s skin. Skin cancer is the most common type of skin cancer in the United States affecting five million people each year (SkinCancer.org, 2021).
NeoGenesis strives to educate people about healthy skin choices and the importance of caring for your skin. Having healthy skin habits can help people watch out for the warning signs of cancer or other chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and much more.
A life-changing diagnosis like cancer doesn’t mean the end of hope. During this difficult time for you or your loved one, there are action steps you can take to prevent various skin cancers and help mitigate broken or damaged skin from oncology treatments. NeoGenesis skincare is one of the most trusted oncology-safe skincare brands with no contraindications!
The various types of skin cancers include melanoma, basal, and squamous cell carcinomas. Checking your skin periodically will ensure that you’re aware of any changes in your skin. This can consist of new or enlarged moles, skin blotches, or small lesions with an irregular border. Keeping an eye on your skin is practicing good skin habits.
Another important habit to practice is always wearing sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy outside. Being exposed to the sun even for 15 minutes can damage your skin. Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays causes most cases of melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer (CDC, 2022). Always wear a hat when possible and reapply sunscreen in the afternoon. Remember, anyone is at risk for skin cancer, even people with darker complexions.
NeoGenesis offers oncology safe skincare products for those undergoing oncology treatments. Cancer treatments such as radiation, chemo or cancer surgery can leave burns, sores and scars, causing damaged, compromised, or irritated skin. Our hero skincare product, Recovery, naturally calms and soothes the skin where side effects exist. This safe and effective skincare product can be used by almost anyone undergoing oncology treatments.
NeoGenesis oncology safe products are designed to support you wherever you are in your journey. Our patented S²RM® technology aids in strengthening the skin prior to treatment, and rejuvenates it during and post-treatment. This technology mimics the healing process in our bodies naturally, by simply returning to the damaged tissue the molecules that were present in greater abundance when it was young and healthy. NeoGenesis products naturally support the skin, delivering nutrient-rich molecules to areas that are inflamed, sunburned, and peeling from the effects of cancer treatments. Simple topical application of these products may help mitigate redness, irritation, and pain.
Beautiful and healthy skin is important to everyone. It’s an external organ that plays a vital role in your confidence and self-esteem. Taking care of our skin with high-quality ingredients can transform the way you feel in your skin. How are you practicing Skin Cancer Awareness Month this May?
