That’s our mission here at skinso, because we believe that healthy skin is happy skin. Too often, guys put their mental health on the back burner. We’ve been there too. But did you know that taking care of your skin improves self-esteem and boosts confidence? That’s right — your mental health matters.
At skinso, we make prioritizing your health fun, fresh, and easy. We care about men’s mental health awareness, and that’s why we’re donating a portion of our sales to the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation. Their mission, like ours, is to help men live healthier!
What is the Canadian’s Men’s Health Foundation?
Canadian’s Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) is a national, not-for-profit organization established in 2014. It’s founders, Dr. Larry Goldenberg and Wayne Hartrick, are champions of men’s health and advocates of healthier lifestyles.
Did you know that men are 40% more likely to die from cancer, 70% more likely to die from heart disease, and live an average of nine years of their lives in extremely poor health? According to CMHF, 70% of men’s health problems can be prevented by adopting healthy lifestyles.
At skinso, we love that CMHF aims to raise awareness of men’s health and change attitudes. It’s about time us fathers, husbands, boyfriends, and just regular dudes begin caring about our health! After all, it’ll not only make us feel happier and healthier, but our families and communities benefit as well.
How does our support help CMHF’s mission?
Supporting CMHF helps their team bring credible information and a host of resources, tips, and stories from real men to other men. Building healthy habits is easy! It all starts with small steps and simple changes.
CMHF’s national campaign, “Don’t Change Much,” shows that it doesn’t take much to improve overall health and lifestyle. A regular eNewsletter is available over email and social media to increase men’s knowledge about living healthier. Another tool that the Foundation provides is called “You Check,” which allows men to assess their own risk for developing illnesses, and directs them to healthcare providers if a serious problem is indicated. Our support also helps CMHF publish research on topics from health stigmas, to smoking tobacco, to how men’s health compares across the globe.
