Simple Sun Solutions

Skin protection

Sun exposure speeds up the aging process by damaging DNA, which may deform cells, contributing to cancer. We often apply sunscreen to children first, then monitor their sun exposure, redness, and play-time, leaving ourselves unprotected and victims to environmental factors like UVB and UVA rays, which can cause immediate sunburn and long-term damage to our skin.

Starting today, care for yourself as well, apply sunscreen to your face, neck, chest, hands, feet, and all over the body. Stay in the shade if possible, use hats and sunglasses, protect yourself, stop the premature aging process now!

According to studies, a regular T-shirt has only an SPF ranging from 3 to 7? Did you know eyelids and the top of your ears are in danger of sunburn as well? When shopping for sunscreen products choose an SPF of 30 or greater, depending on exposure and activity. Look for products with UVA and UVB protection containing Parson.

Lacking Radiance?

The Truth of Fruit Acid/Enzyme Treatments

Fruit Acid/Enzyme treatments may be the answer to a fresher more vibrant complexion. An acid or enzyme compound can help purify follicles from debris by removing dead skin from the surface of the epidermis.

Beautiful, radiant complexion stems from healthy cells; clogged pores impede skin renewal, therefore, fruit acids/enzyme treatments may improve skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyper-pigmented areas, dark spots, skin care products penetration, and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • When using products containing fruit or enzyme acids use caution, it may thin the surface of the skin and some individuals may experience excessive irritation, and/or peeling of treated area when waxing.
  • Sunscreen use is imperative, fruit or enzyme acids make the skin more sensitive and prone to sunburns, use a SPF-30 for protection.
  • A series of treatments may be beneficial depending on skin type, someone with sensitive skin may need less than a person who has nonsensitive skin, always consult with a professional before choosing.
  • Check with your dermatologist and skin care specialist before using any products containing alpha-hydroxy acids or enzymes.

Don’t waste another minute! Achieving a luminous complexion has never been easier! Book a treatment today!

Favorite Products

My number 1 picks of the week

The skin care industry is saturated with product lines, not knowing what works and doesn’t can become costly and aggravating, not only to your wallet, but your face as well. Have you ever wondered if your current products are as effective as they claim to be? If this is your question, then the natural answer is “NO” they don’t work, and by piling up more, they will work less. Out with the old and on to the new!!! Keep your cabinet simple and clear, the way your skin should look, less is more!

First, inspect the expiration dates, then check the products, if separated, toss it! Stat fresh, part from old habits, begin your new regimen to a more radiant you! Have fun doing it.

This week, I would like to feature some of my favorite products, hopefully this will help your next purchase.
