Sephora's Sun Safety Kit benefits you and others

The recent issue of Fitness magazine had an article on sun safety, and every year the news seems to more alarming. Here are a couple excerpts from the article "7 New Ways to Protect Your Skin from the Sun" that shine light on the growing need for good sun protection:

  • A recent survey from the Skin Cancer Foundation showed 34 percent of women never use sunscreen
  • The percentage of women under age 40 with basal cell carcinoma has tripled in the last 30 years
  • Driving may put you at in increased risk for skin cancer (people had more cancers on the left side of their bodies)
  • Lipstick and lip gloss may increase your risk of lip cancer
With all those "sunny" (and definitely not funny) statistics you'll love today's that's hot! thursday. To help you fight those harmful rays check out Sephora's Sun Safety Kit. This fab kit includes travel-size sunscreens from Peter Thomas Roth, MD Skincare, Clarins, Juice Beauty, Cosmedicine, DDF, Shiseido and Korres; SPF primer by Smashbox; protective lip balm from Tarte; and firming bronzer by Murad--all for only $25!

And while protecting yourself with your Sun Safety Kit, you'll be benefiting cancer research because 100% of the net profits ($21.55 per kit) will go to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Note: supplies of the kit are limited and are only available through June, 2008 or while supplies last. Don't underestimate those harmful UVA/UVB rays; they can really ruin your outdoor fun if you're diagnosed with skin cancer. --Emily
