What is your protection plan for incidental sun exposure?

Did you know that just a few minutes of incidental sun exposure continuously over the course of years can have dire effects on the way your skin looks and feels?

While practicing safe sunning at the beach is key, a whopping 80% of your lifetime sun exposure comes from daily activities. Just one year of unprotected daily sun exposure is like spending a week at the beach without sunscreen!

While summer is the most common time for recreational sun exposure, it is important not to lose sight of the incidental exposure that occurs during day-to-day activities like walking your dog or driving to work. Random exposure to UV rays can cause premature aging and wrinkles on your body, and can even lead to skin cancer.

Do you and your family SPF? Is it an everyday protection or just on long summer days in the sun?

We would love to hear your thoughts about summer sun protection come join us in the blogfrog Coffee Community and share your opinion. As a culture are we too obsessed with sunscreen or not protected enough?

We hosted a girls night the other night where we were able to try these awesome Makeup Removing Towelettes alongside the Pore Cleansing Scrub and the Deep Cleansing Pore Strips.

We followed the cleansing towelettes and cleansing scrub with the Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. Ready, set, strip! It’s instant gratification of the very best kind. Combine this weekly treatment with one of the recommended cleansers for the Complete Bioré® Clean!

STRAIGHT FROM THE ISLANDS: INTRODUCING BOTICARIO DE HAVANA BY ARCHIPELAGO

Inspired by the natural skincare remedies of the “boticarias” – or apothecaries – that dotted the side streets of 1940’s Havana, Archipelago Botanicals recreated the natural formulations used to promote beautiful, hydrated skin in its newest collection of amazing bath & body products: Boticario de Havana.

Boticario de Havana utilizes natural ingredients straight from the islands – such as coffee bean, tobacco flower and fruit extracts – known to be rich in alpha hydroxyl acids, antioxidants and other agents that actively promote healthy skin. Pineapple extract removes damaged cells, promotes skin elasticity; orange oil is rich in Vitamin E, contains natural antioxidants that inhibit the progression of age-causing free radicals and is soothing to dry skin; sugar is a natural exfoliator and rich in AHA’s which minimize red or blotchy skin; and the caffeine in coffee bean is known to minimize redness and puffiness.

The collection’s fragrance is based on Archipelago’s runaway bestselling home fragrance blend of Bergamot, Tobacco Leaf and Ylang Ylang, however Boticario de Havana features a more concentrated Bergamot component for a clean, citrusy fragrance which is perfect for personal care products and appeals to men and women alike. With its “green” packaging (boxes use recycled materials that fold together, using no glue) – this collection is both good for the planet and good for the skin. Furthermore the lotions, crèmes and balms are PARABEN FREE.

Shave Crème (SRP: $22.00) – Jojoba esters and natural extracts specially blended for a smooth shave. Crème contains orange oil, wheat protein, coffee & pineapple extracts and Vitamin E – ingredients rich in alpha hydroxy acids known to reduce the appearance of razor burn.
