Some Sunscreens Can Damage Your Skin, Fail To Block Harmful Rays
The sun is out and summer is here. The last few days have been beautiful for getting out, but at the same time that sun causes damage to our skin and can age us faster. Facial treatments will help prevent that by repairing, calming and hydrating the face slowing down the aging process. The newest and best treatment I have is LED light therapy. Just purchased a new one that has new technology to further enhance your skin. Check for info below and call for your appointment now at 630 655 3345.
I, personally, do not use sunscreens. I had a bad experience with it years ago when it became popular. It burned my face. I was on the golf course and used my water bottle to wash it off and still had to wash it off more at the nearest restroom. I do take precautions with the sun. My main to go product is Pevonia’s Vitamin C Complex for my face, to help prevent sun damage. Using Vitamin C Complex at night helps to reverse sun damage. If I am going to be out for quite awhile, I take a powerful antioxidant Bio Astin Hawaiian Astaxanthin 12 mg before going into the sun, to help prevent sunburn. When I’m out at my grandson’s baseball games, I further protect myself by wearing clothing that covers me more, wear sunglasses, and sit under trees when they are around.
Most sunscreens have toxic synthetic chemicals that are irritating to the skin such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, benzophenones,octyl methoxycinnamate, and more. These ingredients can increase your risk of skin cancer and because of the irritation factor, it does increase aging of the skin. Remember the Scientific Rule which states: The more you irritate the skin, the more it becomes inflamed, the faster you age, and the more you are prone to skin cancer. It’s also recommended that you DO NOT use spray sunscreens because of the risk to your lungs.If you burn easily, you might need to use a sunscreen. Look for a zinc oxide or titanium dioxide based formula that acts as a physical barrier. They just sit on the surface of the skin. There is much controversy about using non-nanotech or nanotech formulas. You choose. A safe one that I use and my family uses is Dr. Mercola SPF 50 sunscreen. Can be purchased on his website.
This is my new LED light therapy unit. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, improve texture, tone, and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, and spasms and kill acne bacteria and much more. Also helps with rosacea and redness. So with the summer sun, if you get sunburn the LED light therapy can help to heal that faster.
