The key to keeping your skin looking youthful and fresh depends on how well you treat it. In order to have skin that still looks radiant in 15 years, you must take the necessary steps to ensure its health. Exposing your skin to the sun is just a part of life. However, you can control how frequently and directly you allow UV rays. As warmer weather creeps closer, it is time to start thinking about ways to protect your skin. Protect your skin today by using a combination of sunscreen and sunblock as the sun heats up.
Which To Choose: Sunscreen vs Sunblock
Sunscreen, the chemical kind, penetrates the skin and absorbs the UVA rays before they can reach and cause damage to your dermal layer. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the ingredients responsible for deflecting harmful UV rays before they reach the protective outer epidermis layer of your skin.
Sunblock, the physical kind, contains both organic and non-organic ingredients that essentially stay on top of the skin and act as a barrier between the rays and the outer layer of the skin. Buy a sunblock with ingredients like octyl methoxycinnamate, octyl salicylate, and octocrylene.
The major difference between the two is that sunblocks are formulated to shield against UVB rays, while sunscreens protect against UVA. Luckily, these days you can find formulas that contain both.
Take the necessary steps to ensure you feel and look your best, always. If you have questions or concerns about your skin, give us a call today or book an appointment with one of our skincare professionals. Loving the skin you’re in starts with how well you care for it.
Spring is officially here! It’s time pack away the cozy sweaters and scarfs and dig out the tank tops and flip flops. When it comes to beauty, less always seems to be more during the sunnier months. Vitamin D does wonders for the skin, which means you get to spend less time covering blemished and hiding pale skin. In order to make the most out of this spring season, focus on ensuring the health of your skin. The winter months are harsh on the skin, which means a facial may be in order to reverse the effects of the colder weather. If your goal is to rock the natural look this summer start with a microdermabrasion facial. The next step to achieving the natural look is to toss out the thick, pore clogging concealer and use a light, BB cream for coverage.

Good spray tans are often hard to come by, so you find a salon that leaves you glowing and flawless, do your best to take care of your amazing tan. Here are a few things to keep in mind before getting your next spray tan with us!
Don’t wear tight clothes – Post- spray tan your skin tends to be a bit sticky. Which is why it is a bad idea to wear tight clothing until the formula dries and sets in. Tight clothing increase your chances of smudging you tan. Bring along a loose fitting outfit and avoid smearing your tan.
Sandals or Slip-On Shoes – Putting socks on after a spray tan is a big no no! Although this seems like a small detail, it can totally ruin your spray tan. We suggest bringing slip-on shoes or sandals to wear post-spray tan!
Know When to Get Your Tan – Spray tans need a good amount of time to set into your skin. If you want a long lasting, fresh tan, you should shower after only after hours.It is in your best interest to book your next spray tan for a day where you have some time to kill.
Now is the perfect time to schedule your spray tan appointment. The spring weather is about to hit hard and we know you want to be ready to show off your skin! Do not let the remnants of pale winter skin get you down. We have the spring time transformation fix here at Forever Young Body Clinic.

Although neither exfoliating or hydrating your skin can protect you from harmful UV rays, exfoliation and hydration are crucial steps in preparing your skin for sun exposure. Exfoliating is important because it helps remove dead skin cells that build up on the surface of your face after you tan. It is important to remember to not exfoliate before stepping out into the sun, as it removes the protective layer of your skin.
Tanning or any sort of sun exposure has a way of drying out your skin. It is proven that drier skin is more vulnerable to harmful UV rays. By hydrating frequently you are not only moisturizing and replenishing your skin, but you are helping rebuild the protective layer of your skin.
Make Small Diet Changes
It is true that you can improve your skin’s resistance and protect against UV rays by making small changes to your diet! Foods rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene and carotenoids like apricots, peas, carrots, melon, tomatoes, squash, mangos and kale will help your skin when it comes time to reintroduce direct sunlight. Consider consuming more Vitamin E as well. Vitamin E sources like almonds, nuts and vegetable oil offer their own type of protection from the sun.
Slow, Progressive Exposure
The key to maintaining a glow without damaging your skin is to go slow. Progressive sun exposure is the only “safe” way reintroduce your skin to the sun. Keep in mind that you should avoid burning while being in the sun. Remember that burning increases your risk to skin cancer. Tanning is not good for your skin, so find a great SPF that covers all the UVA and UVB ray spectrum. Keep your sun exposure short and sweet for your safety and your overall look. If you are simply dying to get your summertime glow before spring hits, book an appointment for a spray tan today!
Spring time means lighter nail colors, hair and makeup! While you are making changes to your beauty routine, don’t forget your skin care routine needs revision. The winter season is brutal to the surface of your skin, so in order to bring it back to life, there are a few changes you should be making.
The winter weather has without a doubt dried out your skin. As the spring weather heads our way, it is time to begin rebuilding and replenishing the surface of your skin. Find a moisturizer that is both a moisturizer and a facial skin protectant. Products containing vitamin E or sunflower oil keep moisture inside skin cells and do an amazing job at hydrating your skin. A quality moisturizer should contain beta and alpha hydroxy acids as well as glycolic acid
Get rid of dry and rough skin by exfoliating! When choosing the perfect spring exfoliant, avoid scrubs with apricot pits and walnut shells. These type of scrubs are too harsh and have the potential to irritate your skin. Find a scrub with soothing ingredients like beta hydroxy acids and brown sugar. Once you find your new scrub, only exfoliate 2 times a week.
Bring Out The SPF
Although SPF should be worn year round, it is a skin care necessity for warmer weather. Remember that SPF for your body is much different than the kind you should be putting on your face. Look for a non-chemical facial sunscreen! The best SPF contains ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
Make the most of the springtime by feeling confident in your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, skin care is our specialty. For advice or professional skin care help, book and appointment with us today.
