Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin Cancer Awareness Month

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month


The Skin Cancer Foundation states that “skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States (with over five million cases diagnosed in the United States each year) and is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer.”[1]  Even though skin cancer is clearly an epidemic, many people still refuse to wear sunscreen regularly. DFN would like to keep you safe this summer, so we will be recommending various sunscreen products that we have tested and approve of. DFN would also like to acknowledge that there are many sunscreen products that will leave dark skin very ashy. Therefore, we have made sure that all of our recommendations in this article will be amazing for all skin types and on all skin colors.

Cetaphil®: PRO Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30Cetaphil

This moisturizer (that has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation) is one of DFN’s favorite beauty products! This moisturizer helps to absorb oil, reduce shine, hydrate and provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It even contains Oleosome technology™ which uses a lower concentration of sunscreen filters for less irritation and greater hydration. This product is the perfect multitasking product!

Murad: Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

MuradThere are some people who avoid wearing sunscreen because they believe that sunscreen will mess up their foundation and overall makeup look. Thankfully, this sunscreen (that includes ingredients to prevent aging) is lightweight, clear, and is also a primer. Therefore, this product is perfect underneath your makeup!

Murad: City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++

Murad environmental orange sunscreen

This Murad sunscreen is also lightweight but comes with some pretty unique perks. This sunscreen (which contains Environmental Protection technology) protects skin from not two but five of the main causes of damage that accelerate signs of aging. The product protects against blue light from devices, pollution, infrared radiation, UVA rays, and UVB rays.

SUPERGOOP!: AcaiFusion Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30
