The Power of Superfruits

Himalayan_Superfruit_2.5oz_300A facial scrub doesn’t have to be abrasive  to be efficient. Discover the powerful exfoliating properties of the new Epicuren Himalayan
Superfruit Enzyme Polish. Appropriate for all skin types, superfruits; such as Goji, Bilberry, Acai, Noni and more, and used to dissolve dying skin cells while the seeds buff them away. Exfoliating the skin helps brighten and even your skin tone while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Likewise, the Bilberry in this facial scrub is helpful in healing acne, lessening the appearance of pores, and minimizing hyper-pigmentation.

For maximum benefits, always remember to cleanse your skin before using any facial scrub. Next, apply a dime sized amount on face, neck, and chest.  Leave on for 3-7 minutes then wet finger tips and gently scrub in circular motions. Remove with warm water and pat dry. May be used 1-4 times per week. To find the appropriate cleanser to use before you scrub, call Skin Resolutions in downtown Santa Barbara (805) 569-1923.

 

Should You Wear SPF Daily?

Did you know that sun damage is cumulative? The majority of sun damage happens in the least obvious manner like commuting to and from work. Whether it’s cloudy, raining, hot, or cold the sun’s harmful rays are always present. Be aware that glass does not block UV rays from the skin, it only blocks UVB (burning rays) and doesn’t block the UVA (aging rays) which are more compromising over time. Annually, 3.5 million Americans are affected by skin cancer and protecting the skin with SPF will greatly decreases the risk of skin cancer. Note that sunscreen must be worn continuously everyday  regardless of weather. With all the different sunscreen options available, let Skin Resolutions in Santa Barbara be your guide to finding a sunscreen you love. Some of our favorites include are Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50, Epicuren Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27, Epicuren X-Treme Cream Propolis Sunscreen SPF 45, and Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30.
