I’ve been telling you to apply sunscreen every single day for years. You probably get absolutely sick of hearing me say things about it and maybe you’ve decided to tune me out. Well, for those that still care deeply about their skin and living a healthy life, then listen up!
CVS Is Pulling All Tanning Oils From Stores For Good
If you’re not wearing sunscreen daily, then you’re damaging your skin on a daily basis. In fact, it’s most likely going to look like a leather handbag or maybe that ladies’ skin from Something About Mary (1998). I know, you’re just not jumping on the bandwagon and that’s totally your call. However, those that have committed to avoiding |sunscreen on a daily basis may need to find another place to purchase their tanning oils. That is if you’re shopping at the pharmacy giant CVS.
Basically, what they are doing is removing all sun care lotions, oils, and any other types of products that contain an SPF of 14 or lower. Instead, CVS will be offering a range of 30 new SPF products that have been “standardized” by the FDA.
Why are they doing this? Well, my guess is that they don’t want to promote bad skin care practice and they also don’t want to get sued by consumers testing positive for skin cancer issues after purchasing products from the store.
It’s much deeper than that though. CVS has a company-wide campaign that they are running called the, “Long Live Skin” campaign and it’s one that they’ve set out to run in an attempt to educate consumers on good skin care and overall healthy living.
If you’re starting to develop wrinkles or even lines, especially at a young age, then you need to make some drastic changes to your skin care regimen. Here’s a better way to look at it…
If you’re spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars on skin treatment sessions such as Botox, laser, cool sculpting and more, think of all the money you’ll save if you just wear a sunscreen that actually protects your skin from damage?
It is literally an investment that you cannot pass up. If the retail giant CVS can take a stand again skin cancer, then you can too.
Some people have asked me if it matters where you live. The answer to that questions is absolutely not! I don’t care if you’re living in Boston, Massachusetts or Vail, Colorado. If you are not wearing sunscreen on a daily basis then you are putting your skin at high risk.
Trust me, I spend most of my time in Miami, FL so I know just how important it is to protect your skin from the sun. Too often I hear about college students spending all their time at the pool and beach during days off and they do so without taking precaution.
Guess what, that typically leads nowhere fast other than the dermatologist office to get your skin checked out. It’s incredible how spending less than $10.00 per month on a bottle of sunscreen can actually help save your thousands of dollars in skin cancer treatments.
