Where should your derm check for skin cancer?

by Bionic Beauty on 02.Jun.2014 · 0 comments

With summer almost upon us – or if you’re in the south like me, it has been here for a month now – gentle reminders on sunny skin care are always welcome.

For example, did you know that your family doctor or dermatologist should be checking between your toes for signs of skin cancer?
I didn’t.

On that note, this quickie guide detailing nine places your doc should be checking for skin cancer is worth a read through. Unless I truly am the only person out there who lacked the between-the-toes intel…

Skin cancer can hide in some awkward or weird places — but don’t let your embarrassment allow skin cancer to be overlooked. Your dermatologist should always check these nine places (yes, including your bum and even between your toes). If they aren’t, it’s time to get a new doctor.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Bionic Beauties!

And… I managed to squeeze in a teensy bit of *me* time last night for a minimalistic St. Valentine’s manicure!

Base color is Sally Hansen’s Pat on the Black; and the bitty hearts are done in the new Sally Hansen Purplexed (which is AWESOME by the way!).

Hope you all are having a marvelous day.
Lots of hugs, pink cupcakes, and candy hearts,

P.S. Please, pretty please, don’t pick on my beat up, short, stubby nails. We’re in the midst of a home reorganization, helping some family move across the country, and re-sodding our entire yard. So I’m just happy they are painted. *grin*

New Year, New You: The Price of Sight

Happy New Year, Bionic Beauties!

Now that we are a few days into the new year, you’ve either made your resolutions; or blown the idea off. I polled some close friends over this past week regarding what types of goals they set for themselves each year. Mine was as simple as getting a new hair cut and color; but some friends were interested in getting healthy, traveling, and… Lasik. I’ve always been interested in Lasik since my vision is horrible which means overly thick lenses in my glasses. I’ve even had a few family members get the procedure with great results. Price has always kept it on the back-burner for me though.

And then I came across this price-to-cost comparison…

Interesting, right? I guess I never thought about the long-term costs of glasses. Off to save my pennies.

Stay Bionic,
