This Is What the Sun Does to Your Face (and Here’s What You Can Do About It)

There’s no doubt about it – the sun’s rays feel absolutely amazing, especially in the summer! While we may want to go outside, work on our tans, and soak up as much sun as possible before summer ends, too much sun exposure can do a real number on our skin. In fact, too much exposure to the sun’s rays can give you the very real risk of developing wrinkles, age spots, fine lines, and, in some cases, skin cancer. You may think that skin changes are a normal part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be. Sun exposure causes most of our skin’s changes by damaging our skin’s fibers.

How To Get Summer Vacation-Ready with The Lifestyle Center

Vacation is a time when you want to feel and look great. No one wants to look back on vacation photos thinking, “I hate these photos.” Here are some tips that can help you look and feel your best from your sun-kissed nose to your toes while on vacation! No one wants a bad hair day on vacation. Most likely you will be spending a lot of time outdoors on summer vacation and traveling to places that are prone to high humidity. It’s a good idea to use a deep conditioning treatment a day or two before you leave. This will help protect your hair from all the UV rays you will be getting, plus it will leave your hair more manageable (which means less time spent on your hair and more time spent enjoying yourself). Maybe what you are self conscious about is thinning hair. The Lifestyle Center has several solutions for that! When it comes to your face, it’s important to brighten, tighten, and protect.
