Protect you and your kids skin this summer to avoid sunburn and heat exhaustion.
Here are answers to the most common sun safety questions.
What sun protection factor (SPF) should I use?
Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. The higher the SPF, the better. Puchasing a natural sunscreen or use sun protective clothing is a very good way to avoid unnecessary chemical exposure from sunscreens.
How long can I stay in the sun?
Don’t stay any longer in the sun than you would without sunscreen. Sunscreen offers protection when exposure is unavoidable it should not be used as an excuse to spend more time in the sun. The sun is most damaging to your skin in the middle of the day so stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm.
Should I reapply sunscreen if I swim?
The fastest and most important fix to dry skin is to moisturize.
But for many people with dry skin regular moisturizers are not enough. At first you feel a little bit better but the positive effect is short and sometimes you feel even more dry afterward. That’s when it’s better to switch to a body oil.
You take a shower, fix your hair and put on make-up.
It’s supposed to make you feel clean and renewed. But this might give you the opposite feeling.
The shower might have added 475 toxic chemicals to your body. Unfortunately, the skin absorbs what you put on in. That is just from one shower!
A lot of people apply lipstic and lotion several times a day. At night we wash of all the excess make-up and lotion but what happens to the toxins? Many of the absorbed, potentially toxic chemicals aren’t flushed out of the body. Instead they build up day after day, year after year, compromising your health.
The harsh cold weather during winter can really damage your skin. If you don’t take good care of your skin, you will likely have chapped and very dry skin.
But this can be avoided if you make sure that your skin is sufficiently moisturized.
Tea tree oil is a pure essential oil from the leaves of the Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia). It is is a potent antiseptic and anti-bacterial that is excellent for the treatment of acne.
Fall is here and it is calling for new skin care routines.
Cold temperature and dry air can definitely bring changes to your skin’s health and appearance. The most common skin care problems this season are dryness, wrinkles and pigmentation. So how can we naturally combat nature’s effect upon our skin?
