Summer is in full swing, and although us Ohioians try to soak up as much sun as possible, we have to make sure our skin is protected!

why is it important?

They say the best thing you can do in your 50’s is start wearing sunscreen in your 20s, well count us in! With July being Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation Awareness Month, there is no better time than now to chat about the importance of SPF. Not only can SPF protect us from those harmful UV rays that can cause things like skin cancer, utilizing SPF products on your skin can help with premature aging, sunburns and all those other tricky issues that arise in our skin as we get older.

your future self will thank you.

Sunscreen is crucial for everyone; no matter your age or skin tone. It’s common to hear from our guests that they only apply SPF on their body, but it’s equally as important to apply it to your face. Without face protection it can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and skin discoloration if not applied daily. It’s hard to imagine you need sunscreen on those gray rainy days, but in 10, 20, 30+ years, your skin will be thanking you!
