Cleansing our skin often can lead to a dry face since much of our natural oils are also stripped and cleaned out. Moisturizing our skin; therefore, makes all the difference! This goes for any skin type whether it be oily, dry or combination. Moisture acts as a barrier against wrinkles, dull skin and unhealthy skin tones. Look for products that are clean, natural, and Paraben free. This is the best way to keep up with the natural tone of your skin.
Don’t forget to hydrate those lips too! One too many times, we tend to forget how important lip care can be to the outlook of our face!

- Sun Protection.
We in sunny California know how important protecting our skin is from the sun. However, an astounding amount of Americans do not wear sunscreen or even think about protecting their skin. So why should we protect ourselves from the sun?
A short answer to this is the sun emits UV (ulra violet) radiation that damages the DNA of your skin cells. When enough damage is done, this can lead to skin cancer. The two most common types of skin cancers (basal and squamous cell) are both related to sun exposure. Yikes!
As scary as it sounds, the easiest way to prevent this cancer is essentially to put on sunscreen and take necessary precautions when going out in the sun. So go ahead, slather away!
