Beauty and the Beast...the prevention of Skin Cancer is possible.

Tanning beds.  For years as a Master Esthetician I've called them 'cancer beds', and then I found this cartoon by Dave Granlund, which is more truthful than funny.  After years of being in the skin care field, I can find very little exception for needing to lay in a "cancer" tanning bed, or in the sun for that "tan".

With early prevention of healthy living, most of these deaths can be prevented. The best prevention is taking care of your body. 

One of the best preventions is to study how the many plants and herbs on this earth can help your body, from the inside out, to protect every cell in your body. 

Sun is necessary for proper uptake of many nutrients. It can also cause an un-healthy body to age faster if there is "too much" of a good thing.  

Winter months especially can be harsh. The snow is very reflective...bouncing as much as 30% more rays back onto your skin. Make sure to apply an SPF 30 to all exposed skin. 

One of the most neglected areas are the ears.  Children, men, and women with short hair should apply sun protection every day to this thin skinned area.

Practice safe sun every day.  Your skin is your largest exposed organ...take care of it!

Know the signs of skin cancer. If you have any doubts, it is best to consult a physician, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon. Have your skin checked professionally for cancer. 


Post Cancer Treatment:  After cancer is removed there will be signs of scarring.  RuthAnn Holloway utilizes various treatment modalities to help the skin take on a more natural appearance, along with lessening pigmentation issues that often accompany scar tissue.  Feeling confident, and happy, about your skin is important. We will work together to find the right solution for you. 

Skin deep truth...cancer can kill.
