Did Memorial Day leave you looking like a lobster?
Sunburns happen when UV light kills the layer of new cells just below your skin’s surface. Your immune system responds by sending healing fluid to the burn (the swelling and redness you see), while your nerves release pain messages to your brain to let it know that your skin is “well done”.
The only cure for a sunburn is time, but here are 4 soothing “C’s” to put out the flame while you’re waiting.

Naturally, your face wash removes most of the grime that manages to coat your complexion throughout the day, but it’s not always enough to give you the radiant glow you hope to see in the mirror every morning. Over time, tiny amounts of dirt and makeup can build up on the surface of your skin, and prevent its true beauty from shining through.
I absolutely love how my skin looks after a good facial. The satiny smoothness… that glycolic glow – it’s like living photo-shop! If you’re like me and a weekly trip to the spa doesn’t quite fit in with your schedule or budget, a home peel is a pretty great way to go.
The Birthday Girl! Ahhh, that one day a year when it is all about you; the cake, well wishes, gifts, and paparazzi-like picture taking that accompanies your celebration. Just about a year ago, after a fabulous evening of partying, a dreadful revelation occurred. I looked at the photos my friends had snapped and realized my face had changed… alot… overnight! It’s not that I thought it would never happen, I just expected it to be a bit more subtle, like how your hair grows out. or how your shopping bag fills up at Saks.
Years of gentle cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens had convinced me that I was going to be exempt from the tests that Father Time gave me as I moved from my 20’s to 30’s. Not so! I wash my face at night and look up to see that apparently my eyebrows were not waterproof. My usual sunscreen and hat on vacation did not protect me from the affliction of a “sunstache” over my lip. A little less luster, a few more spots, a tiny crease, and another tiny crease, and another- ladies, we are under attack!
So here is the battle plan: Fight Fine Lines! We are going to launch a assault on aging. From the inside out, head to toe, product to program, this is where our arsenal builds up. Check in with us several times each week for the latest strategies. We can rethink our routines, refresh our energy , and renew our armor. Age gracefully? Not without a very beautiful fight!
So, about that “sunstache”….
