SPF: Three little letters with huge benefits

April 20, 2017

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. With 3.5 million cases in over two million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Awareness is the first step in treating and preventing skin cancer.

Be informed. Be proactive. Be protected.
You’re a pro when it comes to protecting against sun damage – You’ve got sunscreen on your key chain, in your lip balm, and all over your skin. But you could still have plenty of sun damage left over from your youth (the memories of iodine and baby oil are not distant enough). The accumulation of damage isn’t just skin deep – UV radiation alters the actual DNA of your skin cells, resulting in lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and even cancer. But here’s a ray of (UV-free) light: You can reverse the damage. Using SPF daily will stop the process of additional damage and start to reverse, to some extent, what you’ve already accumulated. Additionally, incorporating the following products into your daily regimen will help obliterate the signs of a sun-filled past.

Light the way with Vitamin A
Reduce wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth roughness with this power- packed skin supplement. Vitamin A exfoliates, making skin smooth and even- toned; repairs the cellular structure of the epidermis, optimizing your UV protection; and decreases clustering of melanin granules, reducing brown spots or pigmentation. A dynamic anti-aging and clarifying treatment helps minimize fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and blemishes and helps increase new cellular regeneration without Proven to effectively increase new cellular regeneration typical redness or peeling.

“C” clearly now the pigment is gone
Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin. As levels of vitamin C in the skin decline with age, replenishing levels directly in the skin can help combat collagen degradation and oxidative stress. Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C  promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals,helping to maintain firm and youthful skin. Radical lipid-based Vitamin C works more effectively to brighten, lift and tighten while imparting antioxidant protection, regenerates healthy collagen for maximum resilience, fights free radical damage more efficiently.

Protect and Serve
To use SPF is a no brainer – we know, you have it on your key chain, in your lip balm, in spray form, balm form, and lotion form. But do you have it in an all-in-one magical product that also adapts to your skin color and helps hydrate and tone the skin? We didn’t think so. Outsmart the signs of aging with a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, it’s the smart way to care for your skin.
