As some of you already know, sunscreen should be worn all year long and even on cloudy days.
In my neck of the woods most of us are paying attention to sunscreen when beach weather is upon us. However, it is important to know the guidelines for purchasing sunscreen in order to protect your skin properly.
Below is a link to a video that the Cancer Foundation has provided for your assistance.

A recent comment submitted to this Hairblues blog suggested that a person wearing no Makeup can be beautiful as well as a person who does. Of course, I agree. The always lovely Alicia Keys openly rejects makeup. Of course, all you have to do is look at her in the prime of her loveliness and youth, I can’t imagine this winning duo requires too much of a decision. Can you?
I thought that it might be useful to research whether Makeup has other purposes, and can be used for example, to enhance the longevity of how our skin ages and, additionally, help to protect it. Here are just two examples (maybe suggestions). Enjoy!

Our first example, therefore, is it may be important to use moisturizers daily for protection from the environment because they help to act against the dryness and add some elasticity.
As we transition from Summer to Fall it may be that you should consider tweaking your skincare routine. That’s what some of the dermatologist and other beauty consultants suggest. Here is a link to some guidelines for you.
