Memorial Day 2014

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

This weekend is Memorial Day when we commemorate the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Is also the kick off to the warm weather activities.  You need to slowly welcome the sun after a long winter. Remember if you are going to be outdoors  to start early in the week to prevent damage by stop exfoliating the skin and the use of Retin A, Exfoliants, Acids products. You are peeling off the top layers of the skin which will cause more penetration of the sun rays and cause deeper damage .  Instead boost your use of antioxidants like the Cellution C to minimize sun damage and boost collagen production.  Lastly, protect yourself and your family and apply your sunscreen. Be safe!
