Summer is finally upon us, but for some, that means the beginning of the daily battle with the dreaded fire in the sky. While everyone should be sun-conscious year round, the sun is much stronger during the summer months, making us more susceptible to its harmful effects. People with paler skin know the woes of the sun much more than those with darker pigment, because they lack the protection of melanin. But do you know what actually happens when you get a sunburn? Read on to find out what’s happening when you fry, what it means for your skin, and some unlikely cures to these painful burns.

When it comes to your skin, we can’t stress the importance of a healthy diet. While some things like acne are primarily the result of genetics and hormones, skin problems on the outside can be a huge indicator of poor internal health. Usually when we have a skin problems like oil control, breakouts, and wrinkles, we immediately turn to products. And with all the products available, we’re sure to find one to cure our woes, aren’t we? Maybe, but we’re not fixing the problem. If anything we’re making it worse by covering it up without getting to the root of the problem. Instead, take your skin concern, and look inside first. Sometimes, the answer is as easy as eating more spinach or drinking more tea.

Anti-Wrinkle Creams

You’ve probably heard a lot about anti-wrinkle creams, and no doubt you’ve seen them line the shelves of every cosmetic store. Creams that boast they can “rewind the clock”, “fight aging” and “fill in wrinkles”. But do they actually work? And if so, how are they working?

The anti-aging branch of the cosmetic product market grosses millions of dollars a year. With the industry booming, more and more products are being created and marketed towards people trying to slow or prevent the natural aging process. However, the FDA has fairly lax standards when it comes to cosmetic products that boast anti-aging effects. Their concern lies in the safety of a product, not its effectiveness. Therefore there’s no guarantee that the cream labeled “anti-wrinkle” will actually reverse your fine lines and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
