The Bronzed Goddess

May was Skin Cancer Awareness Month and because we have all probably been touched in some way by the disease, plus the fact that spring has finally sprung, it's a good idea to do everything in our power to protect our very first fashion item...the birthday suit!

Also during the month of May, I had the opportunity to travel to Jamaica and bask in the sun but I couldn't have felt at ease on the beach without my Australian Gold products. Here's what I packed...

Australian Gold® Spray Sheer Coverage Sunscreen With InvisiDry™ Technology combines superior sun protection and a quick-dry formula with the convenience of spray application. Features I love...
  • Oil-free formula
  • Photostabilized formula won’t break down in heat
  • Signature tropical fragrance
  • UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection
  • Water resistant for 80 minutes
  • Available in SPF 15 and SPF 30

Australian Gold Sheer Coverage SPF 45  Faces with Self-Tanner shields delicate facial skin with UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection while a built in self-tanner builds a sun-kissed glow. This...I LOVE! Skin also receives antioxidant benefits from a native Australian extract, Kakadu Plum, known for exceptional levels of vitamin C.

AND to keep my beautiful bronze tan once I returned back to the states as well as while I vacationed, I used the Australian Gold SPF Lotion with Kona Coffee Bronzers. There's nothing like having a sun-kissed glow even on my first day at the beach!  Meanwhile, the natural-looking color still looks fab two weeks later!  

Just a few facts to keep you in the know...

·         Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually
·         One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime
·         More than 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun
·          About 86 percent of melanomas can be attributed to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun
·         About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun

Now here’s the good news. Sunscreen actually works!
·         Regular daily use of an SPF 15 or higher sunscreen reduces the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 40 percent and the risk of developing melanoma by 50 percent

·         People who use sunscreen daily show 24 percent less skin aging than those who do not use sunscreen daily

Now that's what I call great information! So as you get out and enjoy the sun this summer, be sure to pick up some Australian Gold. Oh and don't forget to protect your pucker! I chose TURO SKIN Protective Lip Balm SPF 15

It's loaded with shea butter, soline, sunflower oil, sweet almond oil and menthol. The perfect combination!
