Do you only wear sunscreen when you go outside for an activity? It makes sense to most of us to say HEY, I'm going out biking...grab the sunscreen, No brainer for the beach or a round of golf BUT did you know the NUMBER ONE cause of skin cancer and aging skin is from small dose chronic exposure to the damaging UV rays of the sun and artificial sun tan beds? What is small dose?....that 10-15 min visit with your neighbor, a 20 min walk to the store or post office, driving in your car (yep, side windows do not offer protection from UV-A rays!). Chronic=daily which equals a long term slow build up of photo-damage to your precious skin cells causing permanent damage to your elastin and collagen which keep your skin from wrinkling and sagging, an excess accumulation of melanin--hello age spots and dark patches and most importantly the increase of skin cancer! As an aesthetician....I am passionate about educating my clients on proper skin care. As a woman who has lost 2 friends to malignant melanoma (both under the age of 41 !) I am adamant about educating everyone! Use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with no less than SPF 30 every day! Make sure yours is not expired (it should be listed on your product) There are amazing chemical-free formulas out there for everyone from sensitive skin, oil-free, non-greasy, sheer, matte (my oily skin clients and men love!), hydrating and anti-aging to tinted w/natural minerals for a sun-kissed glow without the damage! We even have a healthy skin flawless foundation/concealer in one that includes anti-aging ingredients and SPF 30 at our spa! Find something you love and use it every day! I promise not only will it be MUCH cheaper now than the doctor bills later but your healthy skin will thank you in years to come! NOW YOU KNOW. DON'T MAKE ME PUT SUNSCREEN ON YOU!
