Taking care of your skin is pretty important, especially in the summer. As I get older I have taken a more proactive approach in my skin care regimen to avoid the aging process, not too sure that it is actually possible, but as I nurse I see the results of poor skin care every single day.
My skin care regimen is simple: wash face with soap and water and apply moisturizer (with sunscreen during the day). I don’t use fancy creams or gels or soaps or masks. I got a facial once and it was horrible. I like to keep my regimen simple and free from too many products.
As a teenager I suffered with horrible acne and I took accutane which caused my skin to be so dry I actually used vaseline on my face. I still suffer from adult acne, especially in the summer, so I was excited to see tea tree oil in this package!! As a topical agent Tea Tree Oil has been proven to be just as effective in fighting acne as benzoyal peroxide without the side effects. I am all for trying all natural remedies, so I will be adding an application of tea tree oil to my daily regimen.
Who wouldn’t want to kiss that face??
The sun is especially dangerous causing both visible and invisible changes in your skin that can result in skin cancers, wrinkles and pigment changes. Sunscreen is not only important in the summertime, but it is important all year long to protect your skin from harmful UV Rays. I am diligent about protecting Abby’s skin from the sun, more than my own, and it is important to me to use products that are gentle on her skin like the Kiss my Face sunscreen.
With good sunscreen, made with natural ingredients, I can feel confident that Abby is protected and safe in the sun. I know that by using these products I am helping her skin stay healthy and protected her from harmful UV Rays. I can only hope that as she gets older she continues to protect her skin, but I know I am starting her out right and giving her the tools to do it!
I myself often miss areas on my own body that should be protected and frequently end up sunburned. I ALWAYS apply sunscreen when I go out in the sun, but as much as I am diligent in protecting Abby’s skin, I am careless with the application on myself, resulting in splotchy sunburned areas.
My nose, my stomach, my chest and the tops of my thighs were all burned from the beach, the pattern was irregular as some areas were covered with the sunscreen and some were missed. It was painful and looked terrible, lucky for me my Puritan’s Pride package included aloe vera moisturizing creme and lotion! Aloe vera is known for soothing sunburns and both these moisturizers worked like a charm. As much as I love the lotion and will continue to use it, I plan to be much more careful in the future so this does not happen to me again!!!!
