May is Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness month and here at Larkly Suncare that’s a very important month on our calendar! We have many in our lives who have been touched by skin cancer and thanks to early detection we are able to celebrate their victories today! In fact, many of these survivors are the inspiration to founding Larkly. One particular warrior who is near and dear to one of our Co-founder’s heart is Piper, Kerri Faber’s Mother.
“I am grateful to have conquered stage IV melanoma, which was actually first noticed on my ankle by Kerri during a girls’ pedicure! My main focus now is to stay vigilant to any skin changes, see my dermatologist every 3 months, and to use Larkly on a daily basis, even when taking a walk. In the past, I’ve had a few precancerous growths appear on those overlooked areas – my scalp, the folds of my ears and my eyebrows. Larkly makes it easy to stay covered and to keep my healthy skin routine!” shared Piper.
According to the American Association of Cancer Research, Melanoma is an aggressive form of skin cancer. It is more likely to invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body than the more common forms of skin cancer. Annual screenings are highly recommended by experts and we encourage everyone to take these matters seriously and mark your calendar every year the first Monday in May for #MelanomaMonday. Per the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 out of every 50 Americans is diagnosed at some point in their lifetime. Larkly Suncare holds an SPF30 rating and doesn’t put additional chemicals into your body with all natural minerals including zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. We are proud to be chemical free.
Reef friendly and sustainable suncare, Larkly is designed with using mineral powder with a brush applicator, easy to keep in any purse or travel bag – with a reusable brush you can easily replace with a refill when you run out! It is easy to apply and the wand and brush make it fun for kids to use. Children are so vulnerable to sun damage so toss one into their backpacks too! As moms we are always trying to spray or rub sunscreen on our kids, we knew the challenges by the time we got ALL the kids sun ready, so the Larkly brush applicator makes applying sunscreen fun for all ages! Now there are no excuses to protect yourself from the harsh damage the sun can do. Plus one of our favorite reasons for staying out of the sun is that in itself proves to be anti-aging! No one is immune to the dangers of the sun, that’s why it is so important to keep Larkly in your bag – whether it’s your way to a picnic, or just a stroll to the car in the blazing sun!
