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. The Pore Cleansing Scrub is more effective than the leading scrub — yet gentle enough to use every day.

Hot Chocolate Bath?

Are you a chocoholic? This may be the product for you! Cadbury is about to launch a new range of bath products which will smell like three new flavors of it’s Dairy Milk bar.

The confectionary giant has joined forces with cosmetic company Anatomicals to create a truffle bath creme, toffee body butter and a hazelnut exfoliating wash.

But sweet-toothed fans of the brown stuff won’t be able to pick this chocolate treat up from any old corner shop. The limited edition products will only be available from John Lewis and online fashion store asos.com.

Cadbury’s Bliss bars launched in September last year, while the range of good-enough-to-eat bath products will be available to buy in June.

This is the first time Cadbury has dipped its toe into this new market, which it hopes will attract young females and support what they call the ‘luxury theme’ of the Bliss brand.

I don’t know about this one. I’ve never smelled a chocolate beauty product that smelled good to me. I don’t think I’d want my body to smell like chocolate. I’d have to try this and see what I think. Feel free to send me a sample. :)

Anti-Aging prep should begin in your 20′s!

Dr. Leonard Tachmes (Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who recently opened his own practice: Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center & MedSpa) believes that anti-aging tips should be started in your 20’s for preventative measures and to create an anti-aging regimen. “When clients approach their 30’s, they really start to notice early signs of aging from small wrinkles to brown spots on their hands – one of the true age-tellers found on the body. It is never too soon to take measure to protect the skin and to preserve a youthful appearance.”

“With over 17 years of experience, I find that most of my clients are unaware of how sensitive the skin is on their hands – - the most exposed part of their body!”

Dr. Tachmes’ non-treatment anti-aging tips include:

1. Wear driving gloves – throughout the year, as early as your 20s…today’s suntan leads to tomorrow’s fine lines, wrinkles and age spots as cracked skin and small wrinkles are a result of exposure to cold weather elements

2. Wear cleaning gloves – penetrating your hands in extremely hot water containing bleaches, degreasers, soaps and anti-bacterial agents have chemicals that dry out the skin – try applying a nice balm to the hands before you clean in case water seeps inside and…the heat from the water can also be beneficial to penetration of product

3. Exfoliate your hands every week with an enriched, oil-based scrub once a week to allow even penetration of moisturizers

4. Apply SPF 30 (or higher) onto your hands just as you would to your face – everyday

5. Apply tint to car windows – even in the winter months, the sun’s rays still have UV rays that are equally damaging

6. Eliminate the practice of chewing cuticles (can cause loose, torn skin that will eventually crack) and cracking knuckles (can cause enlarged knuckles and increased wrinkles) when under pressure – find a non-aging solution that will not affect your skin’s appearance

Do you worry about your hands? I’m 33, and only thing I do regularly is moisturize. Maybe I need to step it up a bit!
