1 in every 5 Americans will be diagnosed with a form of skin cancer in their lifetime.

When we hear that statistic, our heart breaks.

In case you haven’t seen the awareness campaigns (and we really hope that you have by this point), May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. As the most common type of cancer in the United States, it is important that we educate ourselves and do our part to spread awareness so that those numbers decrease!

With summer quickly approaching, we understand the incessant desire to feel the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. Nature lovers, beach lovers, and travel lovers, we are looking at you!

A little Vitamin D from a little fun-in-the-sun is the best cure for the winter blues or a bad day. But it’s no excuse to forget to protect your skin!

Here are some skin care tips to remember this summer:

  1. Never use tanning beds. They can increase your chance of melanoma by 75%!
  2. Always wear sunscreen! The brand is based on your preference, but you should try to never go under 30 SPF. And reapply every couple of hours or right after you are in the water.
  3. Get checked! The good news about skin cancer is that, when caught early, it is curable.

Just as important as educating yourself is educating others. One way you can do that is with our special Skin Cancer Prevention Love Links that is available online for the entire month of May!

Each bracelet sold will donate 50% of proceeds to a cancer research organization! Our jewelry has more than just style… it has a story. And when people ask you about your one-of-a-kind bracelet, you can share our special mission with them.

If you know someone who has been affected by skin cancer, this is the perfect way to show them that you are supporting their journey! If you personally have been affected by skin cancer, our Love Links is a reminder of love, hope, and strength for your journey.

So, please, protect your skin! When you protect your skin, you protect your life.

Beauty is not measured by the color of your skin. Real beauty is when you protect yourself!

It’s THAT worth it.
