Have you ever said to yourself, "if I knew then what I know now". It would be incredible how focused and brilliant we would all be. We have undoubtedly come along way, each and every one of us. We need to celebrate those successes and failures and move on.
Let me give you and example of something I wish I knew then.......if I knew that sitting in the sun with baby oil all over my skin and aluminum reflectors under my chin was not good for my skin, I think I would have protected my skin from the sun. As a result of this activity as a teenager, I developed Melanoma in 2006, the worse kind of skin cancer. I underwent a skin graft on my leg and spent many weeks recovering. I was lucky then and every year at my check up I feel very fortunate.
I remember that summer of 2006 as I was afraid to go outside. If I did I worn long sleeves, pants and a hat! I am still very careful in the sun, especially as I love to be outdoors! When I golf in the summer or ski in the winter I have my skin protected. Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? When you think about that it’s important to protect the skin you are in :)
I thought I would share this story with you to let you know that my product partner USANA has developed a high performing skincare line called Celavive. I trust my skin to this product, especially knowing that the day cream has SPF 30. My dermatologist told me years ago that SPF 30 was all I needed. It also has a self preserving function to help your skin battle the most common signs of skin ageing, including wrinkles, dryness and loss of elasticity! It’s never too late to protect your largest organ. That is definitely important to me.
