Safe cosmetics or any products that we use to preserve, clean or energize our skin are important to consider, especially when it comes to unfriendly ingredients and skin cancer.
Being a “senior” and a male, I’ve never given it much consideration in my life.
My list of priorities has never before considered wrinkles or things like anti aging skincare and the best skincare products.
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! :)
If you've had skin cancer, you should apply the safest cosmetics and skin creams available.

"MELANOMA : “NO BIG DEAL ” IT'S JUST SKIN CANCER!
Hi! 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

The Weather Channel has done well posting this information and photos to help you spot skin cancer, including melanoma.
It can be hard to spot, even for a professional.
The bottom line is to get an expert's opinion about any suspicious mole or lesion on your skin. If necessary, get a second opinion and/or request a biopsy. it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
