This Summer Protect Your Skin From The Sun's Aging Rays



The sun's ultra violet B rays are stronger in the summer, this combined with the fact that we spend considerably more time outdoors requires us to take added precaution during this time of year.  

What you need to stay safe this summer 

A good sunscreen

A good sunscreen should protect your skin from both UV and UVB rays, since both are harmful and are responsible for both skin cancers and pre-mature aging.  Doctors also recommend an SPF of at least 15. SmartShield award winning sunscreens are ideal because they are free of oil, Paba and Deet and are formulated to protect against both UV and UVB rays.



I started using SmartShield last year and I was excited to try their new Rehydrating Face Cream with SPF 45.  This is ideal because it's oil free, so it absorbs quickly into the skin and I don't have to worry about clogged pores.   I have been mixing this with  little foundation and applying on my face, neck and decollete.  It stays put and is sweat resistant, which comes in handy for summertime activities. I also really love the higher SPF for the summer.

Where to find: You can visit SmartShield's website to find a retailer or to purchase their products online.  You can also find select products on Amazon.com

Double your protection with  Pack A Hat!





Cappelli Straworld, Inc. recently launched  a rather brilliant concept that combines a fashionable pack-a-way hat with it's own tote.  The hat boast an SPF of 50 and can easily fold to fit into a little tote that can be used as a single accessory or stashed into a handbag.   Available in seven fabulous color choices.   I like keeping this in my handbag during the warm weather so that I have it on hand, even in emergency situations.

I take sun damage very seriously. The sun feels hotter than when I was a child. I played outside all day. Now, after an hour or two if outside between 10 and 2pm, I can actually feel the burn from the rays.

I take Sun Protection very seriously. I've seen what the damages of too much Sun can do your skin including Skin Cancer. I would like to try the Rehydrating Face Cream with SPF 45. Normally products are for the whole body - I like that this is designed for your face. The concept with Pack A Hat is another great idea. The Tote and Hat combination is simple, yet genius.

I take sun protection very seriously and have been for many years. I wish I listened to my mom when I was younger though. I use sunscreen everyday with at least an SPF 15 and usually try to wear a hat. Especially after I suffered a severe case of sunstroke once. I never felt so awful & I got so sick.
