• The Six Most Important Tips for Total Wellness
  • Sun Survival


  • Skin care
    One of the best ways to look better is by keeping our skin healthy and glowing.
  • Hydration and eating right
    Drinking water helps keep the skin hydrated and supple, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, maintaining a well-balanced diet, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, is important too. These foods contain natural antioxidants which can benefit your skin as well as your overall health.
  • Exercise
    Regular exercise enhances blood flow, giving your skin a healthy glow. Exercise also can help reduce the production of stress-related hormones that may contribute to acne flare-ups. Indirect evidence shows that when you exercise, your level of stress diminishes. Reducing stress tends to quiet the adrenals. There is reduced hormone output, which helps control acne. Regular exercise also increases sweating, which in turn can unclog pores and have a positive effect on breakouts.
  • Spending time with friends
    Relaxing, laughing, connecting – all have a positive effect on our mind and body.
  • Stress relief
    One form of stress relief is getting regular massages. They help promote relaxation and increase blood circulation. Massage also exfoliates dead skin cells, which encourages cell regeneration. The result is healthier, better-looking skin.
  • Adequate sleep
    It seems we can never get enough! Sleep is essential for maintaining your metabolism, but it is also important for skin health. For example, sleep relaxes the facial muscles and that helps to smooth wrinkles and lines on your face. In addition, lack of sleep may alter the regulation of blood vessel tone and thus contribute to puffiness or bags under the eyes.
The Six Most Important Tips For Total Wellness


Over the past 31 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined, but fortunately, it is highly preventable. Scientific studies have determined that daily use of sunscreens can reduce your chances of developing some forms of skin cancer.*

Also, up to 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by the sun.*

It is best to select a sunscreen that:

  • Prevents damaging rays.
    Sunlight contains damaging ultraviolet B and A rays. UVB rays are typically associated with sunburn; UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and can cause sunlight-induced premature skin aging, wrinkling and age spots. Both UVB and UVA rays damage skin and can lead to skin cancer - even on cloudy and winter days.
    Suncreens absorb, reflect or scatter UV light to protect the skin. There are two types of sunscreens, physical and chemical:
    • Physical sunscreens reflect or scatter UV light before it penetrates the skin.
    • Chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays before they cause damage.
Learn how to choose the best sunscreen.

  • Includes a broad spectrum SPF 15 or greater.
    An SPF 15 screens 93% of sunburn damage, and an SPF 30 screens 97% of sunburn damage. Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVB & UVA damage.
  • Applies easily.
    Be sure to apply sunscreen generously to all exposed areas and pay particular attention to the face, ears, neck, hands and arms. Sunscreens should be reapplied regularly – at least every two hours or after swimming, perspiring heavily or towel-drying.

Other ways to protect yourself from harmful rays are to seek the shade and wear protective gear such as hats and sunglasses.
