Why is skincare important? Skin is the largest organ in the human body. It has many functions, including protection. Our skin protects us, so why wouldn’t we protect it?
The number one skincare necessity is SUNSCREEN, SPF 15 or higher. Why? Because the sun and its UV rays cause free radical damage to the skin. UV rays cause direct cell injury and DNA damage. Even when you are inside, UV light is penetrating glass and damaging your skin. The effects of sunlight are responsible for 80-90% of the visible signs of aging. Ex: wrinkles, pigmentation, sunspots, and reduced skin elasticity. UV radiation from the sun is with us year-round, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen year-round. We carry two great SPF products from Rhonda Allison. Ezinc Protection SPF22 is great choice for those who dislike the sunscreen feel and smell. It has a citrus scent, absorbs quickly, and feels velvety soft. Daytime Defense SPF30 and is more of a cream texture, with a higher spf rating. Both contain Zinc Oxide, which creates a physical barrier, rather than a chemical barrier, which is more effective at blocking UV rays, and better for your health. Don’t forget that members save 10%!
