"The best anti-wrinkle cream is sunscreen" - Dr. Victor Clatici, primary dermatologist.
La Roche-Posay launches the Save Your Skin campaign! At its third world edition, Save Your Skin is a public awareness campaign about skin cancer prevention and the importance of using sun protection.
At national level, La Roche-Posay Romania has been running a free dermatological testing campaign for the general public since 2013, for the verification of moles.
The novelty of this year is the launch of the first UV patch, connected to the smartphone through the My UV Patch application, which measures the level of UV radiation.
Save Your Skin! It's as simple as 1, 2, 3
1. Test yourself!
Until June 30, 2017, you can benefit from a free consultation (within the available places) with the dermatologist to check the moles. Over 250 dermatologists from over 40 cities participate in the Days of Sun Protection, a national education event on the risks of unprotected sun exposure.
Information about the participating doctors and the phone numbers where you can make your software is available on www.protectiasolara.ro.
Sun Protection Days have been running since 2013. Since the first edition, over 20,000 people have come in contact with the campaign, over 10,700 patients have been consulted and over 280 suspected lesions have been detected.
Doctors recommend an annual dermatological check or whenever there are suspicions regarding moles.
If you do not get to check your moles with the dermatologist, you can become SkinChecker yourself by a very handy method of self-evaluation of the moles:
It's as simple as A, B, C, D, E:
Asymmetry - the mole is not symmetrical
Borders - the mole has an irregular and fringed shape
Color - molten has an uneven distribution of colors: from light brown to black
Diameter - mole is large (> 6mm)
Evolution - the mole changes its size, color and / or thickness over time.
2. Protect yourself from the sun!
90% of skin cancers are curable if detected early (IPSOS study 2014-2015, 23 countries, 19569 persons (women and men), between the ages of 16-65).
The new La Roche-Posay products from the Anthelios range use state-of-the-art technologies, XL-PROTECT ™ TECHNOLOGY: very high protection against the negative effects of UVA, UVB, IR and pollution. The products contain state-of-the-art antioxidants that act in depth: Vitamin E and Baicalin.
ANTHELIOS XL is the number 1 brand of sun protection products, recommended by dermatologists in Romania.
For years, Anthelios XL has been protecting sensitive skin and skin from sun allergies, offering:

3. Be responsible under the sun!
La Roche-Posay launches in 2017 the first device in the form of a patch connected to an application to measure the level of UV radiation.
