Melanoma Monday

Before I moved New York, I spent most of my adolescent and college years by the beach at all times. I wasn't always the most faithful sunscreen wearer until I began taking interest in the beauty industry. When I worked at Too Faced, each season the team would create a new palette honoring the founder's sister who battled skin cancer, with proceeds benefiting the Melanoma Research Foundation.  These days, I'm addicted to trying new self tanning options,  and religiously applying sunscreen (even if it's not sunny!). If you are a bronzer fan like myself, be sure to purchase one from Too Faced-- they will donate $1 for every bronzer sold to the foundation for a total of $30,000. When it comes to sunscreen, Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid with SPF 70 is hands down the BEST for daily use on the face. The water and sweat resistant formula is totally weightless and goes on invisibly, making it ideal for wear under makeup. Plus, from May to June 2014, Neutrogena will donate one SPF product to a family in need when any product with SPF is purchased from the brand. Read more about the Buy 1 + Donate 1 program here.
