Hello everyone, it has been a while since I communicated. Now I’m back after a long summer break. Summer a great time to kick back, relax, and have fun. Now with the wonderful activities that came with summer, other things that are not so good for us followed with the territory. Things like, extreme sun exposure, resulting in aging skin, sun spots, and sun damage just to name a few. In some extreme cases you can increase the risk of getting skin cancer. We hope that you were diligent with your skin care routine this summer and provided much protection from the sun. While the sun rays felt good we don’t what for your next seasons to be consumed by spending time and money in expensive skin repair products.
We want to stay hopeful that over exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays didn’t damage many elastin fibers and collagen tissue found in the skin. Otherwise, we would have a serious case of lose, saggy, and stretched skin. Don’t be alarm! We will show you natural ways to restore your skin to a healthy state using natural, organic ingredients to nurse it back to health. I say, “It is now time to get your skin ready for fall!”
