SPF do you have some?

I don't how to stress the importance of coverage in this summer heat. I love the summer and look forward to mingling with the cool breezes , heat waves and frozen drinks! In the meantime our skin needs to be protected. The UVA rays cause wrinkles and fine lines and UVB rays cause burning. Men,women and children need to be protected from head to toe. Both UVB and UVA cause skin cancer in all shades. From paley pale to darkest dark. Ladies it can be worn under your make-up or all by itself. Even on an over cast day you should still apply a moisturizer with and SPF or a sunscreen. Enjoy the summer.

3 Steps to Healthy Skin

Step 1 : Cleanse

It's very important to cleanse your skin atleast twice a day. Morning and night. You want to dissolve dirt and left over makeup and unblock your pores.

Step 2 : Tone

This step is important for three reasons.
1. Removes residue left behind by cleansers.
2. It can help control oiliness.
3. It balances the PH(potential hydrogen- or acidity) in the skin back to a normal status.

Step 3 : Moisturize

EVERY SKIN TYPE NEEDS MOISTURE - (sorry, i wasn't yelling) It helps by sealing and protecting the barrier layer of the surface. Oily skin also needs hydration, otherwise the skin will have to overcompensate(kick it up a notch) and produce MORE oil.( Is that why so many people THINK they have oily skin...mmmmmmmmm)

Male Grooming.......So Sexy!

Men's skin care needs are just as important as a women's and I quote:
" First, we need to destroy the term "metrosexual" and the stigma around it. Grooming and looking good has been part of our culture for years. It's about time that men take pride in their appearance." - Fonzworth Bentley (Luv him!)
