Fashion Magazines Declare Sunscreen A Must Year-Round

by kelly / November, 18 2015 01:30
Recently both Vogue and Harper's Bazaar touted the benefits of sunscreen as THE year-round anti-aging weapon. This was in addition to Women's Health and Yahoo Beauty calling sunscreen the #1 most effective wrinkle-fighting treatment. I especially love it when the high fashion magazines promote the benefits of sunblock. It means a lot because even though I may not agree, these magazines are often seen as the bible on all things fashion, beauty and skin care. [More]

Summer is officially over - I know it's sad. But don't worry fall is here and that means the return of pumpkin scones at Starbucks (a personal favorite of mine), football, beautiful foliage and some cooler temps. The transition from one season to another also brings about some changes in skin care. Of course some things should always remain consistent year-round (like wearing sunscreen).

Black Ink Tattoos, Skin Cancer and the Need for Sunscreen

by kelly / September, 9 2015 01:30
Yes my title is a lot and I'll get to explaining everything and how it all works together. Recently I happened upon some articles related to blackwork tattoos and the prevention of skin cancer that stemmed from a study completed earlier in the summer. Blackwork tattoos are tattoos that use black ink. I guess that's good about the study's findings but I don't want people to interpret this study to think it precludes you from sun protection or using sunscreen if you have blackwork tattoos. [More]

Ingredient Truths: Sodium Lauryl / Laureth Sulfate, Toxic or Not?

by kelly / August, 26 2015 01:30
I'm back with another one of our Ingredient Truth series blog posts and this time I'm tackling the two most commonly used forms of sulfates: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). Why should you care? Well there's a lot of mixed info about their safety on the internet and since these two ingredients, according to some industry experts, can be found in close to 90% of shampoos and body washes, I think it's important to understand them. So is something this commonplace toxic for you? Well yes and no - I'll get to that below. [More]
