Did you know…

Did you know that sun exposure is the number reason for premature aging?!?

Of course there are many contributing factors that go along with that such as environmental factors, diet and exercise, smoking etc., but the ultimate, number one reason for premature aging is not protecting your skin from the sun. Don’t worry! There’s enough to worry about these days, and enough noise coming at you from all directions as to what to do to be and stay young and take care of yourselves.. so lets make it super easy… Use an spf daily! Boom! It’s that simple 😃 

SO make sure you love your daily sunscreen, cause if you don’t love it you will be less likely to use it.  If you don’t currently use one, or love the one you have GOOD NEWS… we will definitely have a sunscreen you will love!

We carry the results proven Image Prevention+ Sunscreens, AND there are 5 types to meet all of your sun care/skincare needs!

Prevention+ Hydrating

This long-lasting sun screen offers deep moisturizer for dry/dehydrated and sensitive/rosacea prone skin combined with a broad-spectrum high UVA/UVB sun protection. It’s a sheer formula that spreads easily and evenly without any residue. It’s enriched with a blend of anti-oxidants, vitamins and green tea as an anti-inflammatory agents and provides ultimate protection and prevention against the aging effects of the sun…and who doesn’t want that?!!  (And it’s paraben and chemical free high sun protection).

Prevention+ Matte

This daily use, oil-free and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB critical wavelength high sun protection is a mattifying moisturizer!  No more shiny faces, just glowing beauty!  It incorporates microsponge technology to absorb surface oils and leaves skin with a matte, shine-free finish (YES!!!) and contains a blend of anti-oxidants as free-radical scavengers to decrease damaging effects of the sun and environmental exposures (and it’s paraben free).

Prevention+ Tinted

This daily tinted moisturizer with a built in broad spectrum UVA/UVB high sun protection provides an even skin tone and healthy glow. It too contains a blend of anti-oxidants as free-radical scavengers to decrease damaging effects of the sun and environmental exposures. It’s lightweight, sheer formula absorbs quickly without any residue (and it’s paraben free).

Prevention+ Ultimate Protection

This ultra-sheer, lightweight moisturizer with a built in broad-spectrum high UVA/UVB sunscreen provides skin with ultimate protection and prevention. Next generation technology combines a physical sunscreen ingredient (transparent zinc oxide) with effective antioxidants to prevent free-radical damage and protect against environmental exposures. The ultimate protection contains plant-derived stem cells to delay the aging effects of the sun on skin cells.  This one is perfectly suited for post-procedure skin (and again – its paraben free).

Prevention+ Ultra Sheer

This ultra-sheer, lightweight moisturizing spray with a built in broad-spectrum high UVA/UVB sunscreen provides skin with ultimate protection and prevention. (who doesn’t love an ultimate protection in a spray!!) With the same next generation technology, the Ultra Sheer combines the physical sunscreen ingredient transparent zinc oxide with powerful anti-oxidants to prevent free-radical damage and protect against environmental exposures. Sprays on with sheer foam, and then dries clear and it’s paraben free and water resistant!

Image skincare offers unique zinc sun protection for your skin, which is always a better option for your skin BECAUSE zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are physical (and create a barrier for your skin!).  Other sunscreens (chemical) work by absorbing the suns rays.  With the Image Protection+ line of sunscreens you’re deflecting or blocking the suns harmful rays (and you can still get a tan WITHOUT the damage)!

Something else to consider…. where chemical sunscreens can offer more coverage, they take about 20 minutes after application to be effective.  Physical sunscreens are effective immediately! Additionally, some chemical sunscreens contain ingredients that produce free radicals which may cause skin damage, irritation, and aging… many active ingredients in chemical sunscreens have not been FDA approved. If you’ve ever got “burnt” even after applying a chemical sunscreen all day, it probably wasn’t a sunburn it’s a chemical reaction caused by the combination of the chemicals and the sun…. Interesting right?

This is why most experts agree and prefer that a zinc oxide, or a physical sunscreen is a better choice!

SO…we know you’re going to be in the sun, whether with your littles, friends or family…and we want you to truly enjoy every moment!  Let’s get ready to glow with some of the best sun protection products, and really enjoy every pool day, camping weekend, holiday and whatever summer adventure you can’t wait for!  Come into the spa, chat with our very knowledgeable staff and let us help you get the most out of your time in the sun!
