I don’t talk about having #cancer all that often many people never know or find out that’s what most my scars are from. It doesn’t always look like much but #skincancersucks in the last decade the number of new #melanoma cases has increased 53%. This scar is from 2012 so no you are not too young to get cancer. #skincancerawarenessmonth is in May but if you spend a lot of time in the sun or have fair skin you should be getting checked twice a year. So please get checked ❤️
This patient came in for a different spot of concern. PA, Sam noticed this brown patch and the patient mentioned she had burned herself there a few months ago and wasn't concerned about it. There was a bluish hue under dermoscopy and PA,Sam felt it needed a biopsy. It’s a good thing she did because the results came back as melanoma and surgery had to be done.
🔍We can’t stress enough how important it is to see your dermatologist for annual skin checks.🔎
Aged just 27, Loti Jackson was diagnosed with the most serious form of skin cancer. She became aware that a few of her moles fitted the warning signs when she was working on a press campaign for a tanning brand. After monitoring every 3 months, Loti received a phone call saying she would have to have surgery to have it removed. "I was incredibly blasé about it, and I even tried to postpone it... The next thing I know, the surgeon is calling me saying, 'I don't think you understand the severity of this, and you need to be coming in'."

Real talk. This is my face, right now! Instagram is filled with pretty photos. Really gorgeous people. But, sometimes things don’t always go as planned. And we don’t always get to see the not-so-glam side of our favorite bloggers.
Over the weekend, I had my makeup done professionally, for an event. It was beautiful, flawless, airbrushed makeup. I was happy with the results. However, about 4 hours later, my face started to itch and by the end of the night I had puffy eyes and it felt like I had a sunburn. Fast forward 24 hours and this is what ya get. Swollen, redness, breakouts. My skin did NOT like this makeup.
I should’ve known better. There are things we can do to prevent problems like this!! 🖤Look for products with the fewest ingredients. This will lower your chance of a reaction.
🖤Do a patch test before using any product. Place a small amount on the inside of your elbow and wait 48 hours to 72 hours. If you have redness, swelling, itching, or burning, don't use that product. 🖤Just because a label says something is "hypoallergenic," "dermatologist tested," "sensitivity tested," or "non-irritating," that's no guarantee that the products will be kind to your skin. Some companies do the testing, others don't. There are no rules about how these terms can be used on a label. 💕
Learn from my mistake!! Be kind to your skin. In the meantime, I’ll refrain from posting any selfies! What emoji best represents my face right now?? I kind of think this 🍕sums it up!! #skincare#makeupblog#skincancerawarenessmonth#letscollaborate#looknatural#naturallook#fashionlifestyle#influencer#sunprotection#wearspf#skincaretips#perfektbeauty#protectyourskin#makeupbag#makeuptime#makeupguru#makeupfun#makeuphaul#clearskin#cleanskin#lookfresh#flawlesslook#flawlesscoverage#nofilter#allergicreaction#airbrushmakeup

When the heat is on and the UV index extreme the best sunscreen you can use to protect your skin is a broad spectrum, mineral based sunscreen of at least SPF 30. .
Not only are mineral sunscreens (those containing titanium dioxide or zinc oxide) ocean and reef safe, but they provide a physical barrier on the surface of the skin that reflect the UV rays away from the skin. Mineral sunscreens are also much less likely to cause your eyes to burn, and are a much cleaner and less toxic option than chemical based screens. .
Our Titanium Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a Patented 100% mineral sunscreen that not only protects the skin from harmful and aging UV rays, but also is the ONLY sunscreen that allows the skin to produce Vitamin D without UV exposure - for optimal skin health. This hi tech formulation is also your daily facial moisturizer, and with a pink tint illuminates and brightens all skin tones alone or under makeup. Clean, non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free and formulated for women of ALL skin types and ALL ethnicities 💯

Studies show that most people apply only half to a quarter of the recommended amount of sunscreen, which means they only achieve a half to a quarter of the protection that they are expecting. When you apply, remember more is better and that sunscreen alone isn’t enough. A complete sun protection strategy should also include seeking shade and covering up with sun-protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. #SkinCancerAwarenessMonth

Sending thoughts and good energy to my dad @bmoore6809 . If you’ve followed @vividhuehome for awhile, you’ve likely seen my posts each August celebrating my dad’s organ transplant anniversary. This year will be 24 years.
One aspect of organ transplantation I don't know if many understand, is that organ rejection is a constant threat. The transplant recipient's life is forever altered, requiring them to take daily combinations of anti-rejection medication for the rest of their lives.
Something I've only recently realized is that there is a higher incidence and risk of death from skin cancer in transplant patients.
My dad is a survivor and endures a tremendous amount of trials and tribulations with few complaints. However, In reality, he has literally had over 300 skin cancer medical biopsies and procedures over the course of the last 10 years. THREE HUNDRED. (As declared by his medical doctors at Bethesda naval hospital). So far we are talking squamous cell and basil cell. But his fight is never ending. And today, he had another 3 positive spots removed. His face is swollen with over 20 stitches. (This photo is not from today’s procedures but of the biopsies that then led to the positive results requiring their removal today). I want to raise awareness In all aspects #organdonation#cancerawareness#skincancer#organtransplant#organdonor#armylife#colonel
Thinking about you Dad.

Great reminder from @glowonthegospa —
According to @skincancerorg, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined, and
1/5 will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Watch your sun exposure, re-apply your SPF and get a spray tan!! ☀
