You can get a free, full-body screening and a free sample of Aveeno sunblock. It only takes five minutes and could help save your life. Here's the release:
According to the EPA the UV Index in the Houston area is at number 11+, which means it has reached an EXTREME classification. With UV levels that high and with the news that that the rate of new melanoma cases in young women has jumped 50 percent since 1980, its more important than ever that the people in the Houston area take precautions to protect themselves from the harmful UV rays, including the use of sun protection on a daily basis, and visiting their dermatologists annually to get a skin cancer screening. It is crucial for everyone, no matter their skin color, to practice sun safety.
The Skin Cancer Foundation's Road to Healthy Skin Tour presented by AVEENO® and Rite Aid will be stopping by Houston in the Tour's 38-foot customized RV to offer free full body skin cancer screenings to the public. Local board-certified dermatologists are donating their time to offer the free screenings.
AVEENO® will be distributing free samples of its NEW POSITIVELY AGELESS Sunblock Lotion SPF 70 for Face as well as its line of CONTINUOUS PROTECTION suncare products, featuring the patented breakthrough sun protection technology, ACTIVE PHOTOBARRIER COMPLEX. It is specifically created to deliver optimal, broad and photostable UVA/UVB protection with proper use.
