Safe cosmetics or any products that we use to preserve, clean or energize our skin are important to consider, especially when it comes to skin cancer.
Being a “senior” and a male, I’ve never given it much consideration in my life. Anti aging skincare, wrinkles and looking for the best skincare products hasn’t ever been on my list of priorities.
But it is now!
The skin is an organ and everything that’s put on our skin and rubbed into our skin, penetrates inside our body. Just think of it …deodorants, cosmetics, skin care products,
shampoo and even toothpaste containing toxic and carcinogenic ingredients is traveling inward to other parts.
If you do have
`sensitive skin,` you should know that your body may not be able to tolerate some of the ingredients contained in `sensitive skin products.`
Relax however, because there are many affordable safe skincare products available for men and women.
We just need to be paying attention to the labels and the manufacturers.
Before going any further, here’s a short video with a little insight about what’s in your cosmetics.
Having now seen that video, let’s ask the question, what should you look for in safe skincare?
Look at the label!
It may say “natural” or “hypoallergenic” …or even “organic”, but trust me, we’re dealing with many deceptive companies that do not have the consumer’s safety in mind.
Never just assume, by reading the label, that your looking at safe skincare products.
You should question the ingredients.
Here’s a website where you can go to question the safety of over 7,500 personal care products. Here’s another place you can go to check suspected health effects caused by hundreds of chemicals that may be in your cosmetics.
For a list of 75 natural skincare companies with organic products, click to this website. Look it over and you be the judge. I do recognize many of the names as being safe to use and have nothing negative to say about them at this point.
This information is very much intended for men as well as women. Of course we care about our skin, we just don't talk about it :)

Skin Cancer critical? Enjoy life? Gary does too!
Gary, the publisher, grew up during the 40’s and 50’s in
Massachusetts. Most people didn’t get any type of cancer until they were older.
There really wasn’t any focus on good health, prevention and being on an
exercise program. Like many, he enjoyed a more active lifestyle.
He spent lots of time in the sun and ate the mainstream American diet. In his 30’s, he began working out at the gym and taking a lot of vitamin supplements.
At age 47, he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma cancer, head and neck cancer or throat cancer.
This type of skin cancer can grow inside your body, although it originally appeared on his skin.
He was shocked, filled with fears, emotions and questions. “Will I survive?”..He determined YES!
He chose an alternative medicine approach focused on healthy eating/lifestyle with the guidance of several counselors.
However his cancer continued inside his throat and he feared that if it doesn’t stop soon, he may not survive.
At that critical and frightening point, he began to consent with all the conventional treatments the medical doctors were advising; chemotherapy, major surgery, followed by radiation.
The treatments almost killed him and to this day (since 1990) he deals with life-changing side effects.
Given 5 years to survive, later told 10, he’s been surviving since 1990.
He wants to awaken you to skin cancer and how serious any cancer can be. This site is his passion to share his experiences and the experiences of others who wish to share their stories.
You can find support, encouragement and help making decisions through him and others as well.
He believes a healthy diet and lifestyle are essential to all healing and prevention.
Gary believes that this should be the first choice when facing disease and conventional medicine as the alternative.
He strongly recommends seeing counselors (alternative and conventional) before deciding on your own.

"MELANOMA : “NO BIG DEAL ” IT'S JUST SKIN CANCER!
My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let
me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that
skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that
was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one
told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my
computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick
