Boy this year is going by fast and summer starts this month on June 28th! Are you prepared with sunscreen? I want everybody to be safe, protect your skin not only against sun damage, skin cancer but also hyperpigmentation which is much harder to remove than to prevent.
I will be attending the IESCS show in Las Vegas this month to attend classes and see everything that is new in the skin care industry. Cant wait to share what I learn and see.
With Summer 2011 and sunny days quickly approaching, I wanted to remind you how protective Phyto-C Vitamin C Serums are. Below is an short summary of a few of the benefits* of Phyto-C's naturally-stable Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) serums, -- the only naturally-stable L-Ascorbic Acid available anywhere (developed by Dr. Mostafa Omar, Ph.D.)
Benefits of naturally-stable, topical, L-Ascorbic Acid:
- Extremely strong antioxidant
- Protects against UVA and UVB damage (photo aging and skin cancer)
- Penetrates the skin: cannot be washed or rubbed off
- Stays in skin up to 72 hours
- Stimulates collagen synthesis
- Tightens skin
- Enhances elasticity
- Lightens skin
- Blocks melanin formation
- Vitamins C and E and A combined offers greater UV protection - than Vitamin C or E or A alone
- Vitamins C and E combined provide protection against thymine dimer formation (believed responsible for mutations in DNA, skin cancers.)
Combined with other natural products -- can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat acne, stretch marks, scar tissue - and maximize the results of an effective anti-aging regimen.

Are You Confused About Sunscreen??
Well if you said "yes" you are not alone. I think it is one of the most confusing and misleading subjects out there. This is my opinion from all the research I have done:
There is a difference between chemical sunscreens and physical blocks. Chemical sunscreens contain chemicals which have been found to be more harmful than the sun exposure by itself. Physical blocks normally contain a titanium dioxide/zinc combination that reflects both types of rays (UVA and UVB) while also giving you a beautiful, glowing and healthy tan.
I am not a fan of chemical sunscreen, I feel that we are bombarding our body with chemicals which have to absorb into our skin in order to work and what does our body have to do to get rid of it? It has to be processed through our kidneys and liver (which already has a tough enough job), it also collects in our fat cells which leads to cellulite and trapped toxins in our lymphatic system. If you do choose to use chemical sunscreens please don’t be fooled into the "higher the SPF the better....", anything over a 30 SPF is just more chemicals without a significant increase in protection.
Remember that sunscreens block your body’s natural production of vitamin D. But in situations where you must be out in the sun long enough to burn, be sure to use a product that protects against both UVA and UVB, such as Natural Sunscreen (physical blocks), which uses a titanium dioxide/zinc combination that reflects both types of rays.
