The Road To Healthier Skin Begins At Rite Aid Stores

Healthy Skin TourSkin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. About 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers and nearly two-thirds of all melanoma cases are associated with exposure to UV rays. And risks for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, double when a person has five or more sunburns during their lifetime.

That is why Rite Aid and the Skin Cancer Foundation have once again teamed up to raise awareness about skin care across the country.

Rite Aid is again sponsoring the Road to Healthy Skin Tour, which began in April and will visit more than 35 Rite Aid stores by the time the tour concludes in October.

A 38-foot customized RV will visit each participating store and offer free full-body skin cancer screenings by a local board-certified dermatologist. Helpful information on skin treatments and products are also available to those who attend.

In addition, Rite Aid is providing information about skin care to customers at all stores through its Skin Care Health Education Program, which runs May 31-July 25.

Customers can pick up a free Skin Care Health Guide at front-end or pharmacy counters. The guide offers tips on what to look for in a sunscreen, how to pick protective sunglasses, the benefits of mineral cosmetics and much more.

Customers can also receive a free gift bag filled with samples and coupons ($40 value) by purchasing $20 in specially-marked skin care products. Products must be purchased from May 31-July 25 and entered through the Single Check Rebate program.

In addition, Rite Aid recently introduced an exclusive brand of skin care products that the Skin Cancer Foundation has recommended as an effective sunscreen. The new eight-product Rx Suncare line has items priced as low as $2.49.
