Don’t Hide in the Shade! Just Follow These Simple, Common Sense Do’s & Don’ts
CHICAGO – May 24, 2013 – You don’t have to plant yourself under the willow tree this summer to ensure healthy skin! Try these Top 5 ‘Do’s’ and ‘Don’t’s’ to make the most out of your summer, while protecting your beautiful outer covering:
DO use sunscreen!
There are so many to choose from—something for ALL ages and with specific degrees of protection based on your needs. Obviously, the very fair need more protection than those with more melanin in their skin; however, we ALL need protection so apply a little “common sense” with your sunscreen….it’ll go a long way! For those seeking natural UV protection, try using products that contain sea buckthorn (such as SeabuckWonders body lotion, facial cream and hydrating serum). The sea buckthorn berry contains natural UV properties…no need to apply any unnatural ingredients!
DON’T ignore changes in your skin
This is especially important if you see a change of color, size or shape of a mole! This could be a tell-tale warning sign that you may have a serious skin condition. Many lives can be saved by paying attention to these types of changes, and then taking immediate action. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), one in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer during their lifetime. Don’t take chances!
DO Treat Sunburned Skin
SeabuckWonders body lotion is a perfect solution due to its high content of the rare Omega 7. Omega-7 fatty acids promote tissue regeneration and anti-inflammatory action in the skin and mucosa. DON’T forget about your lips! The lip is a common site for skin and lip cancer due to extended sun exposure without any protective sunscreen. Look for lip-specific products that contain an SPF of 15 or higher.
DO Use Common Sense
Protecting your skin is not rocket science. If there is something you DON’T know, just hop on the internet. There are a plethora of resources that provide great information if you have ANY specific questions or concerns about summer skin protection.
