One of my personal favorite drugstore skin care and sunscreen brands, La Roche-Posay, is throwing a little shade on the first day of summer this year. On Friday, June 21, Jamie-Lynn Sigler - best known to the world for her role in The Sopranos, best known to me as Turtle's girlfriend in Entourage- will be hosting the 'Parasols of Protection' event as La Roche-Posay brings sun safety awareness to Madison Square Park on June 21st and 22nd as part of their SOS- Save our Skin campaign.
A collaboration with La Roche-Posay, Duane Reade and the Women's Dermatologic Society, the event will bring awareness to sun safety with a one-of-a-kind suspended umbrella art installation in the park, celebrity appearances, free sunscreen samples and free skin checks with dermatologists. If you can't make it to the 'Parasols of Protection' event, Duane Reade will be offering free skin checks at select Duane Reade locations on July 12th and 13th.
