Elave Skincare Sponsoring Rory Best's Miles 2 Mayo - Day Three

Rugby great Rory Best is stepping out on a mammoth challenge – and Elave Skincare are backing him every step of the way!

The former Ulster, Ireland, British and Irish Lions Captain is walking an epic 180 miles to raise funds for a therapeutic centre for children with cancer in Co Mayo.

Elave Skincare  will be supporting Rory and the Cancer Fund for Children as he sets out from their respite centre at Daisy Lodge outside Newcastle, Co Down, and heads for Cong.

Rory aims to raise €500,000 during his walk from 8-17th September so that a second restorative facility for sick children and their families can be built on the shores of Lough Corrib.

“I’m taking on the challenge in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to shine a light on the impact a cancer diagnosis has on children, young people and their families,” he said. 

“Families need vital support and respite from hospital visits and the worry and stress they face every day…. I hope you will get behind my challenge to help make a real difference to the lives of children with cancer.”

CFC CEO, Phil Alexander said that for every family they currently help, there are another six who cannot be accommodated.

“A new therapeutic centre will help ensure no child faces cancer alone,” he said. “We are looking forward to working with Rory and our Day 3 sponsor, Elave Skincare, to make this happen.”

It’s never too soon for tweeners to start a sensible skincare routine

The first six months of life are particularly important for delicate young skin. When a child is born its skin is anatomically mature, but functional maturity continues during the first year of life and is often not complete until around the age of two.  

From the age of two until puberty, children’s skin is naturally soft, smooth and full of water, but it is also a lot thinner and more vulnerable than adult skin and is therefore  more liable to be affected by environmental pollutants and irritants.

Aloe vera – a skincare remedy straight from Mother Nature

The gel-like component of the aloe vera plant is known to help with a variety of skin issues like sunburn, small cuts and abrasions.   The name derives from the Arabic word ‘alloeh’ - meaning shining bitter substance – and the Latin word ‘vera’ – meaning true. References to the use of aloe vera can be found in Chinese and Sumerian writings dating back to 3000BC
