Skin Cancer & Melanoma: Take action to protect your skin

It might not feel like the sun has made much of an appearance yet this year☔, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be protecting our skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

May is Melanoma & Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Here are some rather scary stats from Melanoma UK:

  • Every 9 minutes, one person dies of melanoma skin cancer
  • Your skin can burn after just 15 minutes of sun exposure – wherever you are
  • 82% of people don’t use sun protection, even though they know the sun damages their skin
  • Men under 49 are more likely to develop melanoma than any other cancer
  • 1/4 of people only use sun protection on holiday, but the sun doesn’t just shine on the beach
  • Melanoma incidence rates are rising around the world, up 27% in the last decade

The good news is that help is at hand

Using the right products, taking breaks from the sun and regularly checking your skin can all help keep you safe. I definitely love the sun and was lucky to escape to Portugal for some warmth a few weeks ago 😎. But I know how important it is to look after my skin and was pleased to have my AlumierMD sunscreen by my side.

Alumier offers a range of sunscreens tailored to your skin type

Their award-winning Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 40 is a sheer physical sunscreen that provides powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. It uses a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide while moisturising with vitamin E. This formula is also packed with free-radical-quenching antioxidants, including a stable vitamin C, resveratrol, grape seed extract, and glutathione.

Their tinted sunscreen products blend beautifully on the skin, creating a sheer, healthy glow.

If you’re prone to acne, the moisture matt products lightly moisturise to smooth and hydrate while absorbing excess oil to create a matte finish.

It’s not just about sun cream, though. Your everyday moisturiser can help counteract the drying and ageing effects of the sun

I love the AlumierMD Hydra Rich. Ideal for dry skin, this smooth, rich cream is packed with emollients and hydrators for the ultimate moisturiser experience.

If you fancy treating yourself, their Calming Collection set includes four carefully curated, essential home care products to support sensitive and redness-prone skin. They are housed together in a plush, white vegan leather cosmetic bag.

AlumierMD products are medical grade, so you will need to be prescribed any products.
