The Five Reason Why Everyone Should Be Wearing Sunscreen…

1. The sun’s ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays.

2. Skin cancer rates are significantly on the rise and sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer.

3. Sun screen protection aids in preventing facial brown spots and skin discolorations.

4. It also helps to reduce the appearance of facial red veins and blotchiness.

5. It will slow down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin.

Minus Sol

This is a luxurious, water and sweat resistant SPF, which makes it great for outdoor lifestyles, including people who play outdoor sports. Unlike over-the-counter sunblock, this professional SPF will not slide into your eyes causing irritation. The silky smoothness comes from the enhanced chitosan (chitosan is a natural form of fiber and derived from crustacean shells) added to its base. Minus-Sol is oil free, non-comedogenic and specifically designed for sensitive skin. It is safe for children older than 6 months of age and retains its SPF for more than 80 minutes of activity in water or sweating. You can use it all over the body. Minus-Sol contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Minus Sol comes in White or Ivory Tint. The Ivory is great in place of a foundation and is also beneficial for anyone who wants to tone down facial redness.

When performing facials in Fort Lauderdale, no treatment is ever complete without sunblock. This is the leading preventative health strategy and first line of defense against anti-aging and the collagen destroying rays of the sun used by Skin Care Professionals. The regular use of Sunscreen has been proven to reduce Solar Elastosis (aging) and pre and malignant skin cancers. Titanium oxide, better known as titanium dioxide, is a physical sunscreen that reflects UV light before it can damage your skin, according to MayoClinic.com. The biggest health effect of using quality professional strength titanium dioxide creams is reduced risk of skin cancer. More than 2 million cases of skin cancer occur each year, notes the American Academy of Dermatology. Sunburns are associated with increased risk for melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Titanium dioxide is one of the sunscreen ingredients recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. It is not a chemical sunscreen and therefore nonreactive for people allergic to chemical sunscreens.

But… Not All Sunscreens Are Good For You…

A recent study published in Environmental Science Technology has also shown the common sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone, methoxycinnamate, and PABA are estrogenic chemicals linked to cancer. If your sunscreen contains any of these chemicals, you would avoid using at all costs.

  • Para amino benzoic acid
  • Octyl salicyclate

Next time you reach for your moisturizer, and before you walk out the door to face the hot Fort Lauderdale sun, apply your Minus Sol Sun Screen. Feel confident that you are doing the very best to protect your skin from future sun damage and the dangers of skin cancer.
