At Home Remedies For A Minor Sunburn

fybc 6:1:17There is nothing worse than a sunburn. Not only are they uncomfortable but they can cause damage to surface of your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, health is one of our primary cares, which is why we encourage sunless tanning as an alternative to laying out in the sun. That being said, sunburns happen! Here are a few at home remedies you can use to care for your sunburns this summer.

  • Take cold showers or baths frequently
  • With a cool washcloth, apply lotions like aloe vera or chamomile to the burned area. Hydrocortisone Cream may also help relieve both the pain and swelling often associated with a sunburn.
  • If your sunburn has reached its peeling phase, there is little you can do to stop it. Hydrate the affected areas of your skin with lotion or coconut oil multiple times a day to kick start the healing process.

It is important to ease back into the sun after a burn. Give your skin the chance to fully recover and heal before exposing it to direct sunlight. Looking tan is such a confidence booster, but there are ways to get color without compromising your skin. If you have never had a spray tan or are looking to try it, feel free to give us a call. If you are ready to rock a sunkissed glow, book your appointment online today.

Start Fresh This Spring With A DIY Lip Scrub!

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 10.41.36 AM

When we think skin care, we typically think about facials and beauty services created to improve the vitality and overall health of your skin. However, what about the areas on your face that often go untouched by a facial. Whoever thought about exfoliating your lips? We always talk about how important it is to exfoliate your body, but what about your lips? This spring it is important to ensure that your lips are smooth and free from dead skin. The winter weather can leave your lips dry, peeling and even cracked. This can result in your lipstick settling in the cracks of your lips and your chapstick unable to quench your lips. We have a perfect DIY lip scrub that will leave your lips looking smooth and hydrated. Here’s all the info you need to know to create it at home:

Ingredients: 1 tbs Sugar, 1 tbs honey, 1 drop of lavender essential oil

Mixture: Combine all ingredients in small bowl

Application: use your finger to gently massage the scrub onto clean lips and wipe away with a warm towel.

Try this scrub every two weeks for best results! Make sure to be gentle and kind to your lips because this skin is ultra sensitive. We value skin care here at Forever Young. That is why we offer the best skin care in Denver. Right now is a great time to book your appointment with us.

The 411 On Sunscreen!

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.
