“The Safety of Sunscreens”

At one time there were little to no Sun Screens available to buy. We depended on Hats then Visors, Long Sleeves and Getting Out THE Umbrellas or just staying out of it.

Especially if you are very Fair, Sensitive and a Redhead!

The well documented development of the sun screen from a laboratory to commercial use began in 1928 with the mineral Zinc (organic in matter). Who the discovery is awarded to is still debated, but the credit goes to Cosmetic Scientist: Milton Blake (Hamilton Labs, Australia 1930), Eugene Schueller (L’Oreal Cosmetics 1936),   Franz Greiter, Chemist (Australia 1938 and being responsible for the SPF Rating system in 1962), Benjamin Green (American in Miami, 1940 for GIs in WW2/ South Pacific, this Sun Screen became known and commercially available for the first time in America in 1944, named Coppertone).

The first formulations of Sun Screens Commercially were made with very toxic ingredients & had to be formulated in production with Hazmat suits. Since the 1960s, we have seen many more formulas come & go from Sea & Swim to Beach & Boat Lovers including:  Water Resistant Proofs to Cosmetic Infusions in Moisture Cremes to Foundations.

Today, there are wonderful Sun Screens with safer technology and more are being developed. Why, because Melanoma is at an all time high, do to Over Sun Exposure & Burning and Tanning beds which were used by most people from late 1960 through the 1990s & beliefs in the 20th Century, that a deep tans was a sign of health, beauty & wealth. Thank goodness that has changed.

Today Women and Men alike opt for a lighter healthy tan. But the journey to Anti-aging is fragile and as Professionals, our treatments today for Anti-aging include deep exfoliation of all kinds from Enzymes and Peels to Lighter more efficient Laser technology. While all this is a wonderful benefit to our Youth Seeking Clients, protection is an utmost importance.

Let’s put out the Myths and get right to some of the Truths about Sun Screen.

(P.S. if you have question about Myths, email us at www.info@redcherrygroup.com  or seek thru the references below!)

Myth: There are now Chemical-free Sun Screens

Truth: Sun Screen are now made with safer chemicals & available without added chemicals & heavy fragrances. But there are NO completely chemical free Sun Screens. 

Myth: Vitamin D absorption is blocked with Sun Screen

Truth: Sun Screens do not Block the Body’s natural ability to absorb Vitamin D.

Myth: The amount & use in one application of Sun Screen on hot spots (Nose, Shoulders etc.) is best and all you need.

Truth: full coverage and liberal amount to cover all exposed areas and repeating the application is essential to full protection.

Myth: Waterproof Sun Screen are a once an outing application

Truth: Waterproof Sun Screens are meant to last 30 to 40 minutes in the water and need reapplication after water dipping. Your body’s actions are to absorb and in water sun screen melts away.

Myth: My Sun Screen say’s it “PROTECTS ALL DAY”

Truth:  This packaging is not true & is hype.  If it says “all day protection” it must instruct  with reapplication every hour.

Myth: I don’t need to apply a Sun Screen after laser, peel or facial treatment the next day or maybe one more time.

Truth: Like Tanning beds, when we manually decrease our skins layers & the skin become thinner we need to be extremely vigilant with protection every day. It’s a fact and yes you must apply everyday!

Myth: Sun Screen after waxing for hair removal is not necessary

Truth: It’s as important as after any exfoliation service. Waxing hair not only removes Hair but it also takes with it dead skin cells on that area of skin. It’s most important after & continually to apply sun screen daily with exposure. Note, it’s a great practice after all Hair removal techniques including Laser which works to remove dead cell that accumulate in the follicle.

We as Professionals have the most opportune time to educate our clients from  Tweens to Grand Parents about protection and slowing down the chance of skin cancer. Beauty is as beauty does and our body and its skin show the signs of environmental, personal care & stresses as our life’s journey progresses. Being nearly free from disease is hard for us all but we can live a life style of prevention.

Natural Skin Physiognomy works like this in simple terms

If the skin’s oil production is low, it’s generally associated to dry sensitive skins. In cooler months it feels miserably uncomfortable with constant dryness & appearing flakiness that increases as the colder temperatures arrive. As Spring rain starts & warmer temperatures begin the skin slowly feels more comfortable. This is because it oil will capabilities seem to balance & relax the skin. This action for dry skin makes you feel it’s sufficient for the hot months.  What happens is that, this skin type tends to stop facials & opts for a very lighter moisturizer & sunscreen. It finally feels comfortable. But is it really?

For the highly oily to unbalanced dry & oil producing skins, it’s the same in reverse, the skin dries out & tightens, but kicks into oil over-drive under the top layer of skin & surfaces as blemishes in colder months. It tends to congest deeply, breakouts are underneath until its able to surface, white heads from lack of exfoliation, proper cleansing & makeup removal & black heads increase. As warmer months arrive this skin produces more oil & breakouts seem to be more manageable; but most opt for drying cleansers, gel sunscreens and the sun as a healing & blemish control practice. This skin type like all skins need sun protection.

Skin Beauty to June Bloom & keeping it simple:

The answers for all skin types are Facial Treatments that match the Season. Why, because they cleanse deeper & more balancing then you can ever do at home. Types of facial are very important to match the season & your skin’s immediate condition & needs are the wow factor. Facials are anti-aging in themselves, because they stimulate cellular functions, including lymph & blood flow. They kick debris release, refine & balance texture & color while refining visible skin stress.
