ACS teams up with CVS Pharmacy and Johnson & Johnson to save your skin

From ​June ​18-‍24, when people buy any NEUTROGENA® or AVEENO® product with SPF 15 or higher at CVS Pharmacy or CVS.com, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. will contribute $1 to the American Cancer Society, up to $100,000, to help prevent skin cancer. (Trial and travel sizes are excluded from this offer.)

CVS announced recently that the drugstore chain will only carry products with an SPF of 15 or higher. It also says it will be offering more dermatologist-approved options, along with natural and organic choices.

The American Cancer Society recommends that people use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Ideally, about 1 ounce, about a shot glass or palmful, should be used to cover the arms, legs, neck, and face of the average adult. Sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least every two hours to maintain protection.

National Men’s Health Week, June 12-18

Help the men in your life protect themselves and their loved ones from cancer.

  • During National Men’s Health Week, June 12-18, and Father’s Day, June 18, let the men in your life know how much you care by encouraging them to learn about the types of cancer that affect men, and what they can do to reduce their risk or find cancer early, when it’s easiest to treat.
  • About half of all cancer deaths could be prevented by doing what we know works, including not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, being active, eating healthy, and getting recommended cancer screenings.
  • Learn more at cancer.org/menshealth or by calling the American Cancer Society any time at 1-800-227-2345.
