Sun Protection

With summer upon us (and it came at me very hot this year!) I wanted to send out a reminder about the importance of protecting our skin from the sun. In addition to aging our skin (the UVA rays break down our collagen causing wrinkles), it's been discovered that because it reaches deep into the underlying support structure of the skin, UVA is the main culprit for many melanomas.

Block those UVA rays on yourselves and kids (keep their fragile skin covered!!) by using an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. You'll thank yourself as the years pass by!
