The Anti-Aging Ingredient More Important Than Sunscreen

For the last few decades, scientists have been preaching to us to wear sunscreen to look younger.

New studies show: they were wrong! And we were stunned. Here’s what we learned about the latest evidence regarding sun damage.

An SPF isn’t enough to protect you from sun damage. Yes, they block UVA and UVB rays, but those rays only account for 7% of solar energy.

Now for the really interesting part:

New research finds that infrared radiation, which makes up 54% of solar energy, also causes aging AND may be worse than UV rays!

It seems that infrared radiation penetrates deeper than UV rays, producing those nasty free radicals that not only age you but also wreck your skin.

Now What?
So do you give up sunscreen? No way! We’ve always told you how important an antioxidant serum is to your overall skin care.

Now science is backing us up. In fact, wearing an antioxidant serum that has a combination of vitamins C, E, and ferulic acid, a naturally occurring antioxidant and sunscreen, is more important than sunscreen!

This antioxidant cocktail provides the missing link in preventing free radicals from robbing your skin of health and youth.

Wear the antioxidant serum under your sunscreen. Just make sure your sunscreen contains zinc and titanium dioxide, not Avobenzone and Octinoxate, which promote wrinkles!

Have You Got These 8 Spots Covered?

Have You Got These 8 Spots Covered?

Have You Got These 8 Spots Covered?

We know you’re diligently taking our advice and covering and protecting your skin from the sun’s fierce rays.

After all, there is absolutely no good reasons to undo all your hard winter work to keep your skin looking fabulous, now is there?

But there are 8 areas that get overlooked—and cooked—every summer. So we thought we would remind you to protect these areas, especially if you’re on the beach or by the pool.

Scalp- This is a common area for skin cancer, believe it or not! Use spray on or powder sunscreens or just a good old-fashioned hat.

Ears- Pre-cancerous lesions show up on the ears, especially on the driver’s side. Sun through a car window is stronger. Keep some sunscreen in your car.

Eyelids- This one really hurts when they get burned. The eye area is the thinnest skin on the body, so this is a real telltale ager.

Swimsuit Edges- Ouch! Apply sunscreen before you put on your swimsuit and give it a chance to dry first.

Neck & Chest- Basal cell and squamous cell cancers love these areas. Liberally apply sunscreen to avoid such nastiness.

Lips, Hands & Feet- Lips can be tricky to cover, but with a bodily internal spread rate of up to 20%, it’s best to be safe. Don’t forget your hands and feet, too.

Now that you’re officially protected, go have fun!

Here’s the drill. We know you know about sun damage, how it prematurely ages you, contributing to wrinkles, blackheads, sagging skin and milia.

It’s one thing to know it in your head it’s another to see what really happens when you neglect it. (We know you never would, so please pass this on to a wayward friend!)

That’s why we’re adding a little drama to the mix. Here’s a former truck driver of 28 years. He’s 69 years old. Take a look at the left side of his face. Now take a look at the right side.

Big difference, huh? The left side of his face got the worst of UV and infrared rays during his 28-year driving career. This extreme exposure caused his skin to thicken and the elastic fibers to be destroyed. Now he is at high risk for skin cancer!

Thankfully, none of you will ever experience such a dramatic wrinkling. Because you get facials, use our high quality skin care, and exercise caution with the sun, you will never have to go down this road.

But in case you’re running late one day and you’re thinking about skipping your antioxidant serum and sunscreen, just think of our truck-driving friend here.

Slather away and love it!

Should You Get A Base Tan Before Going To The Beach? By Beauty Salon Colac – Call Us On 03 5232 2448

We’re known worldwide as the “sunburnt” country, and it’s no wonder. Australia has the highest melanoma rate in the world.

That’s why so many people think that getting a base tan from a solarium is a good thing.

It isn’t.

The Skin Cancer Foundation states that, “indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74% more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors.” (www.skincancer.org)

Tanning beds are so bad that New South Wales and Brazil have banned them. The UK, Germany, Scotland, France, and several other states in Canada have banned them for people younger than 18.

The truth is a tan is an injury to the skin. Repeated tanning sets you up for skin cancer and premature aging.

Why chance it?

Opt for a spray tan instead. You can get a nice even tan in just minutes—and it lasts for a week!

You have no worries of melanoma, premature wrinkling, or developing any of the other many cancers associated with tanning.

Then when you’re in the sun, use plenty of sunscreen and wear a hat.

Don’t forget to use your antioxidant serum for double the protection!

Nope. Not ever. Never. In fact, don’t even think about it. You do need sunscreen on cloudy days! That’s because there is no such thing as a sunless day. It might be nowhere to be seen, but 80% of the sun’s UV rays still hit your skin.

And that means an 80% chance of increasing premature wrinkling, age spots, spider veins…get the picture?

Car windows block UVB rays but let in UVA rays, which cause the premature signs of aging. And on snowy days? Those UV rays reflect off of it.

So don’t save sunscreen for just the beach or summer or when you feel like wearing it. It really is important to protect yourself all year round!
