Most of us are led to believe that if we slather on sunscreen in the morning and then stay out on the beach all day long, our skin is protected. Unfortunately, this is incorrect. Learning about proper sun protection and sunscreens will keep you and your skin safe!
Myth 1: The sun is bad for you
Fact: No, the sun is NOT BAD for you.
In fact, the sun is healthy if you take precautions. Ultraviolet light from the sun comes in two main wavelengths: UVA and UVB. They are quite different in respect of the risk they create for your health. UVB is the “good” sunlight and UVA is the “bad” one. UVB helps you produce vitamin D that is extremely important for your overall wellbeing, supporting the health of your bones, muscles, skin, eyesight, heart and immune system. UVA can cause free radical damage.

Take your Skin to the Spa (at Home!) Try to do the following treatments at least twice before Tuesday, and in this order; steam first, followed by the astringent, lastly the rejuvenation.
Steam Bath: Steaming is very good to keep skin clean and blemish free, as it can remove excess sebum and dirt and deeply cleanse clogged pores. It also allows the black heads and whiteheads to be pushed out easily and therefore avoid pimples. Steam will also improve circulation, giving you a healthy glow. Do the steam facial once before Valentine’s Day, but NOT on the big day.
