Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2007

It wasn't all that long ago when women would sunbathe for hours to get that "natural healthy glow." Today, we know that sun exposure leads to wrinkles, sunspots, and leathery skin. Skincare-News. com's latest article, "Can Years of Sun Be Undone," discusses what people can do right now to minimize sun damage and tackle unsightly errors of the past.

Unfortunately, there is no magical cream to erase prior sun damage, so the best thing anybody can do right now to protect the skin both today and well into the future is to wear sunscreen - every day. The sun's rays are always strong, even on a cloudy day in the middle of winter, so sunscreen should become a daily practice. The importance of sunscreen cannot be overstressed. Over 1 million new cases of skin cancer are expected this year alone!

When sunburn occurs, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the redness, minimize peeling and prevent further sun damage. An aloe-based gel will help sooth red, inflamed skin. Also, products containing lidocaine will ease the pain of the burn. Instead of hot showers, rinse off in lukewarm water, and follow with a gentle body lotion. Finally, wear sunblock religiously in the days that follow to prevent any additional sunburn.

For people with visible sun damage, like freckles or sun spots, there are treatments for face and body that can help fade the discoloration and even out the skin tone. Made with hydroquinone or botanical extracts that lighten pigmentation, these products will help brighten and clarify the skin. It will take at least 30 days to see results of these products, so be patient! Green tea and vitamin C will also help neutralize the effects of the sun, and many skincare products contain these ingredients as well.

Protecting the skin from the sun now means less time and money spent trying to undo damage, so do not underestimate the importance of proper skincare when it comes to the sun!

A beautiful smile is usually associated with soft, full lips. However, as people age, the lips lose volume and become thinner. They may be dry and flaky. Even worse, there may be lines or wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth. Many factors can cause these problems, but several treatments are available to keep lips looking and feeling great.

In all regions of the world, a multitude of pollutants such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) fill the air we breathe, and leave in their wake pore-clogging toxins and free-radicals that eclipse the skin's natural glow and vitality. Performing a detox is an easy and beneficial addition to a regular skincare routine that will help the body rid itself of toxins and pollutants.
