Do you know the #1 external cause of aging skin?

THANK YOU to everyone who entered the facial giveaway last month! Mary Katherine Venters is the lucky winner! You’ve got a 60 minute facial waiting for you 🙂

Do you know what the #1 external cause of aging is? It’s sun exposure! Sun exposure breaks down the collagen and elastin that keep skin young. Of course lots of factors go into how and why we age, like genes, dietary habits, skincare habits (or lack of), but the best step you can take to slow it all down is to simply wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Don’t leave your bathroom in the morning without it. Headed to the beach or the lake? Pack a hat AND some sunscreen.

Now this is not always a popular thing to say in the skincare community, but I also believe in living your life. Sometimes embracing the moment lands you with a little extra sun damage on your chest, to remember that awesome vacation with family or friends.

I’m not going to rip you a new one for this. Protect your skin when you can, and go out there a live your best life. Just know that there’s not much I can do in a facial while you have a sunburn.

Little reminder that appointments book up fast these days, approx 3-4 weeks out, so plan ahead as much as you can for scheduling!

Have a beautiful April, and see you soon
