Oops. I Forgot My Sunscreen . . . GET THE RESCUE!

It happens. We take every precaution to prevent summer sunburn and sun exposure, but despite the many warnings from the skin care specialists that we most trust, we fail.

 

 

 

 

Sometimes, we simply forget the sunscreen, and an afternoon at the pool turns into a night of torture, as if your skin has turned into hot pavement on a 5th of July afternoon. Other times, it is just simple vanity. We remember the “good ole days” when sunbathing and tanning made us look younger and healthier.  No matter that the facts against over exposure to the sun have proven the golden days of yore were wrong, a little inner voice tells us, “Go ahead, get just a bit of a tan for that healthy glow.” And then, the next thing, hours later, we feel that scorching burn and our skin feels like fire.

OK, then what? There is hope. Here are the 5 top remedies for that burn.

  1. Hydrate. Drink as much water as you can.
  2. Take a cool bath to help cool the temperature of your skin. Do not take a shower. The water pressure against the skin is painful and not helpful for damaged skin. If there is no bath, gently sponge your skin with cold water.
  3. Take a pain reliever such as Advil to help reduce the pain. Reducing the pain can help get a better sleep at night.
  4. Use aloe. Directly from the plant offers the best healing, but over-the-counter aloe works magic too.
  5. Master esthetician La Donna McWhorter says, “The best product we sell to repair sunburned skin is “Rescue” by CosMedix.  It is fabulous.  It will basically repair the skin after any trauma.  It is wonderful.”And don’t get burned twice. Once healed, contact Spa LaDonna!  “we offer treatments for hyperpigmentation (brown spots and brown patches) resulting from sun exposure. ”  If you want that glow like the “golden days of yore,” check out jane iredale’s self-tanners like Tantasia for a natural, sun-kissed, “Malibu Barbie” look.

Spa LaDonna’s Summer Skin Care: REMEMBER THE LIPS!

The LIPS! Each summer, millions of us remember to get the sunscreen and to moisturize our face, body and limbs. YET, the same millions take our lips for granted. This common mistake leads to short-range and long-range issues because we fail to adequately protect our lips.

Sun damage to lips can cause a host of problems:

  • Sun intensity decreases the natural collagen found in your lips. Overtime, your nice pouty, “bee stung” lips become thin as time passes.
  • Lack of collagen from over-exposure to the sun causes deep wrinkles on the lips AND around the mouth!
  • In the most severe cases, sun over-exposure can alter how one speaks.
  • Sun causes Actinic cheilitis, marked by cracking and dryness of the lips, as well as the formation of wrinkles.
  • The bright sun is a main cause of cold sores! The sun removes moisture from the lips, causing cracking, providing a path for the herpes virus to enter lips and the mouth.
  • Skin Cancer! According to the Mayo Clinic,

“Ultraviolet (UV) rays are the most important risk factor when it comes to skin cancer — UV rays are associated with 90 percent of all nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSC) says the Skin Cancer Foundation (SCF). Lips have no melanin, which makes them more susceptible to sun damage cause by UV exposure. Signs of sun damage on the lips develop overtime as a result of excessive sun exposure over the years.”

OKAY! Do we have your attention yet?

Taking care of your lips is fundamental and essential to summer skin care. And, it is relatively easy to do, and inexpensive. First, drink lots of water. Keep your body hydrated for your skin and your lips. Then, invest in a good lip balm. There are many on the market, such as Banana Boat Sport Performance Lip Balm, but these products contain harsh chemicals such as polyethelene, petrolatum, trimethylsiloxyphenyl, isopropyl myristate, to just name a few of over a dozen chemicals.

Esthetician Jaque Hart states, “Lips take alot of abuse. They lack the attention JANE IREDALE LIP DRINK, LIP SUNSCREENand protection that the rest of our summer skin enjoys. Summer time can really take a toll on lips. In fact, lips have almost no melanin, which helps screen out the sun’s harmful rays. As a result, lips rarely tan, but they can easily burn. Be kind to your pout with jane iredale Lip Drink. A translucent lip balm. It is an SPF of 15, UVB/UVA broad spectrum. It combines titanium dioxide, carrot seed oil and avocado oil, for a protective sheild.”

Spa LaDonna recommends Jane Iredale Lip Drink, with organic ingredients like seed oil, lotus flower, green tea leaf extract, coconut alkanes, blackberry fruit extract and lemon peel oil. And, a tube only costs $12.00, and will more than last the entire summer! Studies have found that popular over-the-counter brands exaggerate the SPF as well, but the jane iredale brand labels the correct SPF coverage! And jane iredale‘s products are free from animal testing too!

About Jane Iredale

jane-iredale-slider-2Jane Iredale was born in England and moved to the U.S. where she started her career in the entertainment industry, working first as a casting director and then as a writer and producer. She worked alongside those whose success often depended on having a clear complexion and witnessed how skin disorders and sensitivities could not only threaten careers, but destroy self-confidence.

Makeup, while used to enhance appearance, was many times the underlying cause of the skin conditions these men and women sought to hide. This provided the inspiration behind her first mineral foundation. Working from her kitchen, Iredale’s passion for health and wellness inspired her to develop the product using natural ingredients that would improve the health of the skin. When an order was packaged for a customer, she would cut a sprig of lavender from her garden to enclose in each box—a tradition that endures. She’s moved beyond her kitchen and today, Iredale sells nearly 400 items in more than 50 countries.

What’s your favourite way to relax?
I live near a beautiful lake where friends have a house and a boat. I love to drift on the boat with my friends and our dogs. Once in a while, I jump in the water and swim forever. I feel all the tension of the week disappearing out of my body.

The hardest thing I ever did was… jump off the top diving board when I was 10.

The biggest mistake I ever made was… not learning another language.

Our customer is… the woman who has had an “aha” moment. Sometimes it comes with her first breakout, sometimes when she sees her first wrinkle, sometimes with pregnancy or when she first starts to read labels. It’s that woman who’s looking for a better way.

What I love about this business is… that I’m surrounded every day by accomplished, professional women who take pride in their femininity. My husband thinks he’s died and gone to heaven.

I started this company because… I had a product—our loose mineral base—that I thought could help women by providing them with a makeup that was good for the skin. It gradually grew from there. I didn’t think it would turn into a brand, but I’m glad it did.
