One of the first signs of premature skin aging is on the hands. While many stay diligent on applying sunscreen, oftentimes than not the tops of the hands are forgotten.

While on summer vacation, don’t forget to give those hands a solar defense.

If hands are not part of the anti-aging skin regimen, then having them exposed to the sun will take its toll.

Skin Care Heaven, a skin care store and research center based in San Diego, offered some tips to help keep hands looking and staying young.

“Whether we are at the beach, poolside, taking a stroll outdoors, or even dining at an outdoor café, we have to apply sunscreen to the tops of our hands,” said the spokesperson from Skin Care Heaven. “If we forget to do this, this delicate
skin will dehydrate, wrinkles will appear and sun spots will begin to emerge.”

The spokesperson added that sunscreen on the hands has to be applied as frequently as on the body. Being extra cautious is a good thing.

“Just like facial products that reverse signs of skin care damage, there are a couple good ones out there that do the same for our hands,” she said. “The first is Jan Marini Age Intervention Hands and the other is Lierac Repair Mains.”

The perks to Jan Marini Age Intervention Hands are:

• Helps with the lessen appearance of sun-damaged hands
• Resurfaces and lightens
• Lessens age spots and freckles
• Rehydrates and smoothes out skin
• Full spectrum sunscreen

A glimpse into Lierac Repair Mains includes:

• Tones and firms skin
• Deep hydration
• Soft and supple hands
• Nourishes hands
• Strengthens nails

“Keeping one step ahead in your anti-aging skin care for your hands will make a world of difference,” said the spokesperson. “We can enjoy fun in the sun without sacrificing youthful and gorgeous looking hands.”

Summer vacation is here. And while it’s time for fun in the sun, keeping our skin nourished is extremely important.

Skin Care Heaven, a skin care store and skin research center based in San Diego, is serving up a summer vacation checklist to help make sure everyone’s skin stays healthy and gorgeous.

“Even though summer vacation is a time to relax, one thing we cannot relax on is our skin care regimen because we have to protect it from premature aging from the sun and keep it well hydrated,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products we don’t want to forget when we are traveling.”

This suitcase list includes:

Soap-free cleanser
Moisturizer
Broad spectrum sunscreen
• Lip balm with SPF protection
• A duo body and hand lotion
• Nighttime treatment(s)

“One really popular must-have for your getaway is the mini travel size Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar which buffs away dull skin for a more glowing and silky look in those summertime fashions,” she said. “This bar is also clinically proven to help with stretch marks and cellulite.”

For those who aren’t committed to a skin care manufacturer, summer vacation is a great time to pick up a travel skin care set. Not only is it light to pack, but it gives you the opportunity to test a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost.

“If you are flying to your destination, don’t forget to keep your lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since air travel will dehydrate your skin,” she said. “And be sure you meet those carry-on 3.4 ounce TSA rules so you aren’t forced to leave your favorite products at the security checkpoint.”

With the right skin care arsenal, summer skin will look luminous and radiant.

Get A Sun-Kissed Jumpstart With Sunless Tanning Lotions

Posted for BeautyGift IdeasMoisturizersSkin CareSun TanningSunscreen On June 4, 2013

While the weather is warming up outdoors, many are throwing on their summer fashion and realizing how they need to remedy their pale skin. For those planning a summer vacation, many dread the thought of slipping into a swimsuit looking so white.

Not to worry. This is where sunless tanning lotion can help.

“Sunless tanning lotion is a great tool we can all use as a springboard into the summer months,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce skin care store based in San Diego. “A quality lotion can look like a real suntan.”

The spokesperson pointed out that for those with sensitive skin issues, it’s best to get a sunless tanning lotion for the body, and then another, for the face. The top pick in this category at Skin Care Heaven is made by Sun Laboratories. Boasting an array of shades, this manufacturer offers Sun Laboratories Strictly Faces Self Tanning Cream and Sun Laboratories Self Tanning Lotion. Their mist self tanning products are also popular choices, too.

“It’s important to note that even with the best products, preparation and application is really important to get that perfect sun-kissed tan,” the spokesperson said.

Below are some easy-to-follow steps to get that look.

The Body:

• Use a sugar body exfoliator to remove dry skin to prepare the body for sunless tanning
• Rub in a very thin coat of a body butter or moisturizer
• Apply sunless tanning lotion with a damp sponge
• Move the sponge in small circular motions versus up and down – this will avoid streaks
• Following your application, be sure to regularly use a moisturizer in the days and weeks ahead
• Avoid hot baths and instead take quick, warm showers then blot dry

The Face:

• Use a gentle facial exfoliator to prepare skin for sunless tanning
• Rub in a thin coat of a facial moisturizer with fingertips
• Use a damp makeup sponge for application
• Apply small amounts at a time in circular motions until desired color is reached
• Be sure to moisturize on a regular basis to preserve the sunless tanning lotion for as long as possible

“When it comes to areas of the body which have wrinkles, such as the knees and elbows, be sure to apply a thin layer of sunless tanning lotion to avoid unnatural darkness in these zones,” said the spokesperson. “The best rule of thumb is to take your time with the application so it is done right.”

Self tanning cream can offer an overall healthy glow even before that first visit to the pool or beach.
