You know how we feel about tanning. While we value glowing, radiant skin, we’re all about achieving it in a healthy and natural way, so we try to stay well clear of direct (not to mention unnatural) exposure to UVA and UVB rays!

Now, according to a recent announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), avoiding tanning beds may be easier than in the past.

The FDA has plans to begin reclassifying sunbeds from low-risk to moderate-risk products, which means they will need to be cleared by their taskforce before being allowed onto the market.

These items will also be required to carry stronger warning labels under new regulations proposed by the agency, which has also officially recommended that the machines not be used by people under the age of 18.

Hopefully these steps will be used as a deterrent against dangerous skincare practices!

Ask Patti - A Natural Way to Ageless Beauty

A Face In The Sun

Q: Patti, I’m getting together all my products for the summer, is there a good sunscreen you can recommend?

A: I’m so happy you’re thinking ahead and, more importantly, thinking of your skin. While often a time for beautiful weather, summer can be a dangerous period for skin health.

Restorsea’s Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30 provides complete protection against both UVA and UVB rays and, better yet, is light weight and not greasy. The world will only know about the SPF by your untouched-by-the-sun glowing skin.

XOX,

UVA and UVB rays from sun exposure can speed up the signs of aging; causing wrinkles, redness, and not to mention skin cancer!

Always protect the goods with a good SPF (hint, hint).
