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.
What are some of the SPF guidelines when using sunscreen? Why should we be interested and concerned? What are the methods we can use to soothe and alleviate the effects of sunburn, if we find ourselves in this unfortunate situation?
Listen to my recent podcast on this topic and then use the links in this post for detailed information about sunscreen, spf, and remedies for sunburn.
Aloe Vera, for example, has been used for sunburn remedies. Apple cider vinegar and other remedies with recipes can also be found at the link below.
Episode #14 of the Wellness Connections introduces you to a conversation I had with some people who think that Sunscreen is an “American“ thing. This conversation informs those who think that this is true that there is evidence to the contrary.
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!
A tinted moisturizer can actually be good for mature skin.
As I searched the www for opinions and ‘expert ‘ advice about the “no Makeup” choice , it became evident that the Makeup choice is – as you may have suspected – ultimately a personal decision, because ‘one size does not fit everybody’. What also became evident is that, as we age, our skin does change. It may become more dry, less smooth and thinner. There is also loss of skin elasticity. 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.
What do you know about skin serums? Do they work? Are they worth the cost? Are they good/bad for your skin?
According to some of the research I did, serums can help with various kinds of skin problems like, wrinkles, acne, redness, or dryness. They can produce powerful results, compared to other skin care products. Since they are water-based, your skin absorbs them quickly. Also, they don’t have petrolatum, or other kinds of oil. Serums have nutrients, (like retinol and vitamin C), which are good for your skin.
