Occasionally, I try to remember just how youthful, soft and beautiful my skin must have been when I was a little girl.
Only now do I realize that my healthy childhood skin was something I took for granted. I remember smothering it with sloppy suntan oil before spending hours at the pool. I would draw on it with Magic Markers. I would even use school glue to stick glitter and other sparkly things to my hands and face.
In short, at the time I didn’t think twice about preserving the youthful, healthy skin I was born with. As long as my skin was tan, I was happy. Real happy. And the darker my tan was, the happier I felt. It amazes me that at one point in my life having a sharp tan line was a status symbol among my friends.
I admit I was always a bit jealous of the girl whose tan line was darker than mine. Back then, I might have been forever golden brown — but was I ever clueless. Everyone was. The fact that extended exposure to sunlight could cause skin cancer wasn’t widely known even as recently as a few decades ago.
Now, we know better.
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation:
■ One in five Americans will develop Melanoma during their lives.
■ All it takes is just five severe sunburns to double your risk of Melanoma.
■ 80% of the sun damage your skin will ever receive will occur by the time you’re 16 years old.
These are scary statistics. Facts like these are also the reasons why my husband and I have spent the last eight years working with a team of dermatologists, skin specialists and researchers developing a bold new approach to children’s skincare.
Introducing the DermalYouth Children’s Skincare System. It’s a simple yet effective way to protect young skin from the harmful effects of the sun every single day — while also providing natural moisturizers, antioxidants, and vital skin nourishment each night.
The DermalYouth Daytime/Nighttime formulas are made with only the highest quality natural ingredients like Aloe Vera Gel, Shea Butter, Borage Seed Oil and Cucumber Melon Extract. Ingredients from nature that help nourish and protect your child’s flawless young skin. You may have noticed our ingredients have names you can pronounce — unlike many of the chemicals you’ll find listed on the backs of those partially used skin lotion bottles gathering dust in your bathroom cabinet.
Each DermalYouth Children’s Skincare System comes with two fast-absorbing lotions. One specifically blended with natural moisturizers and SPF 23 protection. It takes just 10 seconds to apply this every morning. The other contains natural emollients plus nature’s finest antioxidants to nourish and rejuvenate children’s skin each night while they sleep.
Teach the young people in your life to apply DermalYouth twice a day right after they brush their teeth, and you’ll be confident their skin is protected for all those daily moments when sun damage can sneak up on them. Like when they are waiting for that notoriously slow school bus to arrive, or when their P.E. teacher decides to take the class outside for an hour to practice soccer skills, or when they are just hanging out with their friends on the benches near the coffee shop endlessly texting one another.
Do you have an effective skin care regimen in place for your children?
When used daily, the DermalYouth Children’s Skincare Day & Night formulas provide a natural, well-balanced skin protection plan for all the young people in your life. Daily use helps preserve their natural, youthful-looking skin well beyond their teen years.
Help your kids & teenagers retain their beautiful, youthful, healthy skin longer by sharing the natural daily skincare regimen of the DermalYouth Children’s Skincare System with them. Who knows, you may want to use it every day too.
Regardless of how old they are when you start them on the System; their future selves will thank you for it.
