Healthy Skin Campaign: Skin Type IV

Hilary Barnett, Office Coordinator

Let me paint a picture for you. It’s July 2004 and I am 16 years old. I am laying by the pool in my bikini, Afrosheen in hand, and my biggest concern is how tan I can get before school started in August. Dousing my body in Afrosheen for weeks, I finally achieve the color of “Perfection”. Fast forward to now and my biggest regret is the hours I wasted harming my skin. Luckily, my darker skin complexion has a little more natural protection from skin cancer, although I still get my yearly skin checks! Not everyone is lucky enough to work at a Dermatology office and have their eyes opened up to the insurmountable levels of knowledge and importance of protecting and taking care of our skin daily. My greatest hope is that this blog will reach someone whose biggest concern is what mine was years ago. That they too, will come to see the importance of a daily skin care routine and kiss the greasy life goodbye!
